Your home has mouldy walls, a musty, dank smell to it, cracks, rotting or decaying walls, a band or tide mark, salt deposits, bubbling, flaking or fretting plaster, dirty and ugly markings, your sinuses and/or allergies aren't improving ...

NOW, these are the effects of RISING DAMP and it is not a pretty site.

You feel embarrassed, your family's health is at risk: there might be micro-organisms or mould spores breeding in the walls, respiratory problems, developed allergies or asthma (worsened), it is difficult to rent or sell your property in this condition, you may be on your 3rd or 4th attempt to fix this problem ...

Yet it keeps coming back ...

Address the CAUSE not the symptoms!

Trusted to dry out national heritage buildings (worldwide), castles, monestaries, cathedrals, wine cellars, churches and other such important buildings - because it works and DOES NOT affect the integrity of the building.

What is Rising Damp?
How & Why is this happening?

A brief explanation of what it is and how it is caused.

Rising Damp Explained

Rising damp is a form of dampness that occurs, particularly in older buildings, when groundwater rises up through walls, floors and masonry via capillary action which is the ability of a liquid to flow in narrow spaces in opposition to gravity.

Any masonry structure, unprotected by a properly installed course to prevent rising damp, is susceptible to natural rising damp. Damp will rise by capillary action through the pores of the masonry seeking a means of evaporation.

The moisture will continue to rise until it reaches a height where, unless no evaporation is possible, gravity takes over and pulls it down again. This height is seldom more than 1.20m, although deposits of ‘salts’ may be found higher in the wall, often driven there by the use of non-breathing plasters, renders, ‘tanking’, paints or vinyl wall papers.

What can happen if it goes untreated?

The greatest and most obvious consequence of rising damp is the visual aspect: ugly colour stains, lines and cracks along the walls, the unpleasant smells, and these all “keep returning” no matter how you treat it. It is just a matter of time.

Health issues caused by mould are a big contender for the eradication of Rising Damp.

Mould damage to wall and health risk

Mould is a non-scientific term for many types of unwanted fungi found both indoors and outdoors. Active mould growth requires moisture. Actively-growing mould damages the material it lives on, thereby impairing structural integrity. Moulds produce allergens (substances that can cause allergic reactions) and irritants. Inhaling or touching mould or mould spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Allergic responses include hay fever-type symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash.

Depreciation of your asset / property. Selling or renting will become a problem. If not cured, completely, you could be legally liable or at risk for either the damages caused to tenants and/or full repair costs.

Structural repairs - foundations, brick work or masonry, plaster work and painting - are all ineffective and will become a recurring problem (good for the builders) unless the moisture (the cause) itself is completely addressed.

Traditionally, and statistically, rising damp has a tendancy to return, even after a few years. It ALWAYS comes back. This is because the cause has not actually been treated.

We will then give you YOUR written Building Moisture Analysis Report along with key information to assist you in your decision and plan of action to resolve your Rising Damp problem.

We have taken it upon ourselves to ethically and factually inform you of the root cause and the only effective solution to this problem. Once you have been shown the facts, you decide for yourself. All your questions are answered in layman terms - easy to understand.

How can RISING DAMP be effectively treated?

The AQUAPOL Dehydration System utilizes some amazing “free energy” technologies. Some scientists like to refer to this energy as free energy, zero-point energy, vacuum energy, or cosmic energy. To control moisture levels, the device uses certain wavelengths from Earth’s energy field to stop water rising inside the capillaries. This method is very effective for solving rising damp problems, because it addresses the root cause of the rising damp by neutralizing the capillary forces.

This is using nature to resolve a natural problem. AQUAPOL uses the frequencies of the molecules to address the capillary attraction happening, thus 'allowing' a natural occurance - the rising groundwater to lose its natural tendancy to rise. Read more here ».

It is important to note here that the AQUAPOL system addresses RISING DAMP - "a form of dampness that occurs, particularly in older buildings, when groundwater rises up through walls, floors and masonry via capillary action which is the ability of a liquid to flow in narrow spaces in opposition to gravity.

Damp occurring above the window line is not rising damp.

NO chemicals - NO wall-cutting - NO Maintenance - just 100% NATURAL dehydration results that are 100% Guaranteed. A 100% eco-friendly "pure cure".

The AQUAPOL Dehydration System is a “free energy” technology that has been proven to work. Since the inventor Wilhelm Mohorn established his business in 1985, over 0 AQUAPOL Dehydration Systems have been installed in 0 countries - with great success.
If you have rising damp issues in your home, the AQUAPOL Dehydration System could be the solution you have been searching for.

The Aquapol Dehydration System is patented under European patent # 0688383–1996 and has been tested by the TÜV-EMV (Association for Technical Inspections) EMV test report No. P9892097E01 TÜV-Rhineland, 51105 Cologne, Germany.

Here Is What Some of Our Customers Have to Say ...

" AQUAPOL installed devices in 2 villas, it took 8-12 months to get the job done but it worked. We previously thought it was maybe irrigation that was causing the rising damp, but with the installation of the Aquapol devices we realized it was the water table."

Senior Maintenance Engineer Sun City

" ... Today I am still just as well satisfied and I recommend the AQUAPOL system, its inventor and the Aquapol team ...“ - Re: Mariahilferstraße. The building has been dry since 1994! "

Schopf Building Engineer

"It has resolved my problem. We had a huge problem at one of our police stations with rising damp. We had an underground water problem and it was creeping up through the walls, and creating health problems for the staff working there. They complained of sore eyes and other health issues. There was also fungus growing on the wall."

Dept. of Public Works Pretoria

Proven Workability

Since 1985 AQUAPOL have dried out over 55 000 buildings, globally, including world heritage buildings, castles, wine cellars, libraries, churches, monasteries, and other important landmark buildings – where it is impossible (impractical, improbable, insane) to do structural work such as drilling or cutting into the structure itself to apply solutions – that have proven themselves unworkable – as the rising damp DOES RETURN, INEVITABLY and never resolves.

Disclaimer: We will conduct a telephonic survey to establish whether a site visit is required. Should your building have a serious, progressive rising damp problems - meaning multiple walls suffering from rising damp, smelly and dank, visible moulding, salting, tide lines, and so on, we will schedule a site visit to a premises within a 50km radius of Jhb - to perform the Moisture Analysis and provide you with support documentation for the problem.

In certain cases we may request that you send photos of your Rising Damp damage. Should it be determined that a site visit is not required, we will advise and recommend telephonically and send appropriate information so that you are suitably educated so they can make informed decisions about your property. Thank you for your understanding.
