The drying up process
The drying up process starts directly with the reversal of the electric potential, since no more water can rise to the top. The current flows until the moisture has been expelled from all areas of the generated field. The WiTRO-system achieves a soft, gentle draining of the brickwork. For a permanently dry wall the WiTRO system, once implemented, has to be continuously in operation.
The artificially created electrical field functions as a horizontal barrier permanently preventing moisture from rising up the wall. A specific application of the electrodes can not only function as a horizontal barrier, but can also prevent a vertical spread of moisture.
