This isn't in anyway a solution, as I never knew there was one till I read some of the replies! I just put a rubber backed bath mat on the floor behind the toilet and under the tank. I have tiled floors, but it keeps me from having a mess to clean up! I just throw the mat in the washer once a week.

pure and simple .. add a toilet block not only does it keep the toilet clean and free of limescale it adds impurities to the water so it wont go cold enough so the tank gets covered in condensation.
After 2yrs 4 plumbers and one wanting to change the pipe incase it was leaking charging me ££££££, this idea was a long shot 4 days in and nothing no condensation no dripping on the floor no rotting wood.

I had that problem and it was the flapper had a very small raise in it and didn't seal. Once I replaced it, never had it happen again. The water ran through constantly. Now, I keep a spare flapper in the house.
