Drying System
« on: March 31, 2018, 08:54:26 am »
I have a question about the wall drying system, I am very much reading the forum about this,
I do not give a response if the matter works or not.

I think it is handling the water by simple electrical dissociation of the water, converting the moisture in the walls inot a blend of hydrogen gas and oxygen, which then escapes as a gas vapour. Thus removing the liquid, and keeping it from getting damp again as any excess water that comes back will start the electrolysis cell again. The anode looks suspiciously like regular heavy gauge aluminium wire that they bury in the brickwork in the receded joints, and then probably they have drilled and put in similar long rods as the cathode connections all round the perimeter of the basement interior as well.

Long term I am not sure, best would be to dig and place an external barrier as well, along with a series of French drains to keep the water from coming back into contact with the walls under the ground level, or to drill and inject columns of hydraulic grouting to generate a waterproof concrete barrier around the house as well. That this has to be powered permanently just says it is a stop gap solution, long term you will be replacing anodes and cathodes quite regularly, as they will erode away.

The best is the installation of drainage, but in my case, the house is built with a stone with 1m walls, and the interior is 40 cm lower than the outside.
what about this It works ?

Based on the video, I do not think the claim is based on dissociation of water into hydrogen and oxygen.   

The claim seems to be based on "electroendomosis" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electro-osmosis).   Namely, the creation of liquid flow by putting an electrical charge across the medium in which the liquid (water) is contained.   That is very easy to demonstrate in water containing gels, such as agar and agarose, and is well know to anyone who has done electrophoresis.   The water does not need to be in a gel.   It will work in wet paper or even a sheet of water.

Everything is nice and right, that I still do not know if it's better video clip with anodes and cathodes or
The wireless OMBRELLO® wall drying ?

How about stating your real question up front?  My response was to your original post.   Now you ask a completely different question and give no details.   We have to look up Ombrello system, then give an opinion on relative merits.

Why don't YOU buy both and write an evaluation?

Voodoo, no way some nanowatt RF signal from a little box is going to do anything across an entire house.
