Aquapol Explained in a few Answers
Some of the Most Commonly Asked Questions
Aquapol starts drying out your (the) building from the time of installation. However, it is a gentle, natural process which requires time to do its job.
On installation wall samples are taken and the humidity levels are recorded. 1 year afterwards, we return (at no cost) to take new comparative measurements. At this stage, based on our experience, the building already shows substantial decreases in wall moisture and is ready for remedial actions such as re-plastering and repainting. At the same time, customers have reported reduced symptoms such as no more musty smells. In fact, in some instances the smell has disappeared in as little as 5 weeks after installation. After 3 years Aquapol does the final inspection (free of charge) to confirm that the building is dry.
Once the system is installed it reverses the polarity of the water molecules inside the wall and sends the water back into the ground from whence it came. It uses no batteries, chemicals or electricity which makes it both eco-friendly and cost-efficient.

It doesn’t harm plants and flowers in the least. In fact, according to feedback from one customer, her plants and orchids are flourishing since the installation of the Aquapol system.
No, the dehumidifying effect is applicable only to building masonry (brick, stone, concrete, etc). The health benefits of the Aquapol System have been independently researched and documented. These are available on request.
Approximately 5-6 hours for an average sized house.
Yes it can be done. The Aquapol technician will, by arrangement and at a nominal fee, transfer the device to the new location. The other alternative is to leave the device where it is and add the cost to the selling price of the building.
There are no negative effects from the Aquapol System. The health benefits of the Aquapol System have been independently researched and documented. These are available on request.
There are no negative effects from the Aquapol System. To the contrary, the device puts out negative ions which are well known to offer health benefits.
We have had reports from customers of improved sleep but the primary purpose of the System is to dry out rising damp. The health benefits of the Aquapol System have been independently researched and documented. These are available on request.
The Aquapol System is completely silent in operation.
There are zero harmful rays or emissions. On the contrary, according to independent research done, the Aquapol device increases the negative ion count in the air (converts the ambient positive ions to negative ions). This factor is known to offer health benefits. The findings are available on request.
Where chemical injections have been applied prior to the Aquapol System being installed, it can take up to 5 (instead of 3) years to dry out the walls due to the chemical barrier blocking the downward movement of the water.
As long as the problem is rising damp, the Aquapol System will dry out the building.
