An efficient and safe system to dry out humid walls

Construction materials are full of holes!

Les matériaux de construction sont pleins de trousAll construction materials are generally more or less porous. When looking through a microscope, you observe cavities, cracks, bubbles, etc. A huge number of these microscopic voids communicate with each other, thus building a gallery network that is almost invisible to the naked eye.

Dry walls

Very often, a wall built with these materials is dry. Its gallery network is full with air and there is no water condensation inside. Under these conditions, the wall breathes and isolates correctly the inside of the building from cold or heat coming in from outside.

Wet walls

It happens sometimes that the bottom of the wall is in contact with a pretty wet soil. Then, the water contained in the soil penetrates the gallery network, rises up and impregnates the wall partially or totally. This phenomenon is called capillary action. Capillary comes from the Latin “capillus” which means “hair of the head”.

Under these circumstances, the wall, more or less impregnated with water, loses its thermal insulation property. The inside of the building becomes humid, molds originate and proliferate, generating unpleasant smells. The paint peels off and the gypsum plaster crumbles, deposits of mineral salts appear inside or outside of the walls, the wall deteriorates, etc. Measurements done by engineers indicate that one cubic meter of bricks could contain up to 300 liters of water!

Basic discovery

Découverte fondamentaleBy observing the various factors influencing the rising of water in wet walls, an Austrian engineer by the name of Wilhelm Mohorn successfully built a device that uses natural electric, magnetic and gravitational forces in order to reverse the capillary phenomenon and push back water into the soil.
This device handles soils impregnated with water in wet basements in the same manner.
Picture: the device receives, converts and amplifies the natural electric, magnetic and gravitational forces in order to reverse the ascending motion of water due to capillarity.

The Aquapol system

The device called Aquapol runs in an independent manner, doesn’t consume electricity, doesn’t require any maintenance and doesn’t emit harmful radiations. No injection of chemicals is required and it is not necessary to make holes in the walls. The device is placed in a certain spot and the water is progressively pushed back into the soil and never comes back… as long as the device remains in place.

A reliable system

The Aquapol system runs successfully:

  • Since 1985
  • In more than 50,000 buildings,
  • Worldwide, in more than 20 countries!

A 20-year guarantee applies to the Aquapol system. Return is possible if you are not satisfied.

Here is the list of prestigious buildings which have been saved from destruction thanks to the Aquapol system:

  • Germany, Singen, Castle Schlatt unter Krähen
  • Austria – Klosterneuburg – Cloister
  • Austria – Vienna – Greek orthodox church
  • Hungary – Budapest – Parliament building (photo at the top of the page)
  • Italy – Bari – Basilica di San Nicola
  • Italy – Mareta – Wolfsthurn castle
  • Italy – Roma – Basilica di Santa Maria in Trastevere
  • United Kingdom – East Grinstead – Rockwood Park building

Installing Aquapol

The Aquapol technician makes regularly inspections to check that the quantity of water in the wall or in the basement constantly reduces. The location of the device may be changed to improve the treatment efficiency. Generally, the technician observes that the walls or the basement are less and less wet.

Final product

Finally, after several months, the walls or basement treated with the Aquapol system are permanently dry.
