We studied the effect of water vapor on the performance of glass Resistive Plate Chambers (RPCs) in the avalanche mode operation. Controlled amount of water vapor was added to the RPC gas mixture that has C2H2F4 as the major component. The deterioration in the performance of RPC was observed while operating with the wet gas and recovered after switching to the standard gas.
