VISUAL SIGNS OF RISING DAM

What are the symptoms of rising damp?

Symptoms are: peeling plaster, damage to paints, presence of Salts on the wall surface, mould odour, feel of cold in the environments.

Why is plaster deteriorating more in one certain area?
Where do salt efflorescence and humid stains on plaster intonaco or paint come from?
Where and why is rising damp happening in masonry?
How do I know if rising damp is an actual problem for me and whether the Polopposto device can be effective or not?

SMELLING AND SENSORIAL SIGNS OF RISING DAMP

The more humid the wall, the harder thermal insulation is. Why?

Because water is a good heat conductor!

Especially in winter, heat in rooms is released more quickly from humid and cold walls.

Why does it always feel like air is drafting from a humid wall?
Although rooms are heated and ventilated constantly, there is a smell of mould all over the year, why is that?
I restored my house last year but I can feel high humidity although there are no salt efflorescences. How do I know whether the problem has been solved or just masked?
Does rising damp help the formation of condensation and smell of mould?

POLOPPOSTO DEVICE

How does the Polopposto device work?

The Polopposto device works based on scientific principles: it acts directly on the cause of rising damp by attracting the water molecules inside the walls to the ground, through the propagation of a magnetic wave, which is harm-free for living beings and plants.

What is the PP100 device's range of action?
How is the Polopposto device installed?
Does the Polopposto need electric power? How much power does it absorb?
Is the Polopposto device guaranteed?

THE BIOLOGICAL SIDE OF THE POLOPPOSTO DEVICE

Can the Polopposto device affect the human body?

The device-generated magnetic wave has no interference whatsoever with any form of life. The Polopposto system has passed all scientific tests on possible interactions with cells of living beings.

Does this new device have a noticeable interaction with the physiology (behaviour of health body) or pathology (behaviour of ill body) of animals, plants and yeasts? Can it induce diseases or deformities?
Can the Polopposto device cause interference with other electrical devices?
Can the Polopposto device and its range of action interfere with individuals carrying biomedical equipment like pacemakers and the like?
Who performed the biocompatibility test between the Polopposto device and living beings and plants?

COMPARISON AND DIFFERENCES WITH OTHER SYSTEMS

What is the scientific difference between Polopposto and other similar systems?

The key difference from similar systems is the scientific basis under the functioning of the Polopposto device.

The damp removing action of the Polopposto device in a wall affected by rising damp was proven and carried out at ET LAB laboratories (their own labs and those of their partners or consultants) using technology tools whose list can be provided by ET LAB upon justified request submitted through Polimagnet Ltd.

Many other similar systems have no scientific research behind.

• How is the Polopposto device installation different from similar systems?
• What is the marketing difference between the Polopposto device and other similar systems?
What is the difference in price between the Polopposto device and other similar systems?

POLOPPOSTO MARKETING AND TECHNICAL SUPPORT

Where can I find the Polopposto device?

You can also buy it online via the Polopposto site or through the Archiproducts shop online portals available in over 130 countries in 11 languages and / or Amazon in 5 European Countries in 5 Languages.

Who can I turn to if experiencing moisture issues at home?
How do I know if the Polopposto device is working?
Does the Polopposto device need maintenance?
After removing rising damp from the wall, can I remove the device?

INTERVENTIONS AFTER HAVING INSTALLED THE POLOPPOSTO DEVICE

How long does it take before the Polopposto device starts being effective in the wall and removing moisture from it?

Dehumidification of the masonry affected by rising damp occurs if the Polopposto device is installed properly. It takes from 3 to 24 months for complete dehumidification, depending on the amount of water inside masonries, the type of building materials used and the type of existing plaster and paint. The more breathable the plaster and paint, the faster the dehumidifying action.

After installing the Polopposto device, what should I do to solve the problem of ruined plasters and paint?
Can I get advice from you in order to restore contaminated plasters?
How do I know what type of plaster should I use to prevent salting from happening again?
Once I have installed the Polopposto device and restored the plaster and salt neutraliser as suggested by you, how can I be sure that the problem is gone forever?

F.A.Q.

Why is mere plaster redoing not a solution to rising damp?

Plaster is not the solution to rising damp because walls in contact with the ground absorb moisture, so the dehumidifying plaster does not create a horizontal barrier inside the wall, but it only conceals the aesthetic problem for a while. It is always better to stop rising damp first and then replace the contaminated plaster, being careful to use a salt neutraliser that is suitable to the wall and is effective against the type of salts inside the wall.

Can the Polopposto device be installed on any types of masonry?
The Polopposto device can be installed on all types of buildings, including historical buildings, villas and historical houses, religious monuments, civil dwellings, etc...
Can I use the Polopposto device to prevent possible rising damp or to keep walls dry?
What are the dimensions of the Polopposto device?
