Aquapol was founded in 1985 by the Austrian engineer and physicist Wilhelm Mohorn. His passion for energy phenomena as well as his musical instruments that were corroded by the dampness in his cellar were the reasons why he turned his research made possible the permanent handling of rising damp using only natural sources of energy.
He founded Aquapol as a one man business in 1985. He spent almost a decade in researching energy phenomena and the fundamental concepts underlying the Aquapol system.
During these years several generations of devices have been tested, developing the Aquapol system from one milestone to another through a series of technical breakthroughs, into what it is today: a precision masonry dehydration system capable of drying out virtually any type of masonry.
Significant research has also been carried out about the various building materials, masonry diagnosis methods and renovation techniques following the dehydration.
By 1991 the Aquapol system had dried out more than 10,000 buildings including a wing of the Budapest Parliament building. This number today has increased to 50,000 and the list of permanently dried out buildings include flats, residential and commercial properties, cellars, listed buildings, national heritage monuments, castles etc. Today Aquapol has offices on virtually every continent. The system has been available in London since 2013 and it has been installed in numerous residential and commmercial properties including listed buildings.

Aquapol masonry dehydration system
The Aquapol masonry dehydration system, a precision German technology, has been the method of choice for drying out old protected buildings in Europe for decades. The system has recently gained increased popularity in London because it is a non-invasive, environmentally friendly and chemical free method of preventing rising dampness.
The Aquapol masonry dehydration system is the latest development in wall drying technology. Its main area of application is the dehydration of buildings affected by rising damp. The heart of the system is a small, lampshade-like device which is installed onto the ceiling. The device uses wireless technology to dry out the walls. Using simple physical laws, the Aquapol system uses certain wavelengths from Earth’s vast energy field to stop water rising inside the wall capillaries. The results are permanent because the system addresses the root cause of rising damp by nullifing the capillary forces. As a result water cannot rise in the brickwork, the building dries out and it will stay dry thereafter. The Aquapol system can be used to dry out walls located both above and below ground level (e.g. basements, cellars).
Internally, the device consists of a system of receiving and transmitting antennas, and it is composed of three main parts:
1. The receiving unit: situated at the bottom of the device, will capture certain wavelength from Earth’s natural energy field, in a conic shape. This unit is basically a filtering system which is designed to only let through those wavelengths which can influence the water‘s migration inside the wall capillaries.
2. The polarization unit: will amplify the useful waves.
3. The transmission unit: will finally project the useful waves onto the surrounding walls, resulting in the cancellation of the capillary forces inside the walls and the dehydration of the masonry within the active range of the device. Similar to a low power crystal radio, the Aquapol device does not use any electricity, it powers itself from the waves it captures through its antenna system.
Paper, sponge and brickwork all have something in common: they are porous, their structure consists of millions of thin, microscopic channels called capillaries. Most building materials — including bricks, cement, sand, quartz, granite , sandstone, clay, glass etc — are silicate based minerals, consisting mainly of silicon and oxygen, and they have a negative surface charge. Water, commonly known as H2O, is a dipole (two-pole) molecule, with one positive end (the H2) and the other negative end (the O). This structural arrangement makes water molecules behave like tiny liquid magnets which can be easily influenced or moved by external fields
rising damp is water’s natural tendency to rise in the brickwork. When in nature a wall fabric comes in contact with water a specific interaction will take place between them at the contact surface. The negative wall surface will attract the positive end of the water molecules (H2) which will make water rise inside the capillaries. This is called capillary attraction and it is the main driver behind rising damp. The attraction force decreases with the distance from the capillary wall, which will result in a curved surface of the water column (also known as meniscus) inside the capillary.
The Aquapol Effect
In addition to being in motion, every atom in the universe is also in vibration. Because hydrogen is the most abundant element in the solar system — about 75% of it — a general “background” hydrogen vibration is available everywhere.
The Aquapol device captures this natural H2 vibration, amplifies it and projects it onto the surrounding walls. This will make the H2 atoms on the contact surface vibrate harder and harder (resonance) until they break away from the wall surface. The attraction forces will thus change to repulsion, the negative wall surface will now repel the oxygen atoms from the water. In lack of attraction water will gradually flow back into the ground and the masonry will become dry. The Aquapol system will not affect the hydrogen atoms from the bulk water and has no adverse effect on the human organism.
Here are some of the advantages of the Aquapol masonry dehydration system:
• It works on any building type or wall thickness.
• It can dry out underground walls and cellars.
• Non-invasive to the building structure, can be used for listed buildings.
• Permanent solution.
• No construction work, no mess.
• No chemicals, no electricity.
• Improves the thermal insulation of the building, reduces the heating costs and saves money.
• Non disruptive installation and operation.
• Totally silent and maintenance free
• Zero running cost.
• 25 years functional warranty.
• Money back guarantee.
• Easy, hassle-free solution.
The typical installation of an Aquapol system takes about half a day.
The initial moisture content of the masonry will be determined at several checkpoints from drilled samples from the core of the masonry.
To track the progress of the dehydration follow-up moisture measurements will be scheduled every 6-12 months until the building is dry.
All measurement data is shared with the customer or the project manager in real time.
