The electro osmosis damp proofing system is the perfect system for those notoriously difficult to dampproof substrates such as stone, random rubble filled walls or highly porous substrates. The chemical free system is quick and easy to install, simply drill holes into masonry above ground level and insert a series of titanium anodes into the brickwork.

One end is connected to a low voltage power supply and  the circuit is completed at the other end by an earthing rod (cathode) driven into the ground to a level below that of the anodes and at a distance of at least 2 metres away from the nearest anode. The completed and  operational system then provides a positive electric potential, which stops the rising damp and  allows the wall to dry out. Removal and replacement of salt contaminated or damaged internal plastering is carried out as usual and  to the normal specifications used when replastering after the insertion of a chemical damp proof course.

This kit contains enough wire to damp proof 25 linear meters.

Kit Contents :

  • 1 x 25m Anode Osmosis Wire
  • 1 x power pack
  • 1 x earth rod
  • 1 x earth clamp
  • 20 crimps

THE THREE KEY COMPONENTS OF THE Electro-Osmosis System :

POWER UNIT

The simple and robust power unit plugs into a 13 amp  socket. The plug connected to the units output lead simply fits into a socket fitted  to the titanium wire of the installed system. Power delivery from the unit adjusts automatically from the degree of dampness  in the wall thus ensuring the best possible results.

ANODES

The anodes are supplied spliced into pure titanium  wire. Each anode consists of a titanium  wire substrate coated with platinum. The platinum is very resistant to oxidisation and is used to ensure excellent long term electrical conductivity into the wall.

EARTHING RODS

The earthing rods complete the circuit. The electrical potential created by the power unit is between the anodes and  earthing rod(s), therefore it is important to achieve a good earth contact.


PRINCIPLES OF INSTALLATION

ONE

Before a OTIC Electro-Osmotic system can  be considered a full survey of the property should be carried out. Floor levels inside and out, wall construction type(s), floor construction etc., should be determined alongside the diagnosis of the dampness survey itself. Once rising damp has been correctly diagnosed, attention can  be turned to the practical considerations of where power units and  earth rods can be positioned and what  the best route  for the installation of the anodes might be.

TWO

Installation of the anodes  can  be from the outside or the inside of the building, in either case the internal  rendering will almost certainly need to be removed due to salt contamination. If not, at the very least, skirting boards will need  to be removed to allow access to the base of the wall when internal  installation is carried out.

THREE

The anodes  are inserted into the wall via holes drilled from a mortar  bed down at an angle  (varying from 10° to 30°). The titanium  wire between the anodes is placed into a 20mm chase  or groove cut into the mortar bed.

Things to take into consideration before processing a refund / Exchange

  • The item should not have been worn and should be in the same condition as when supplied (we appreciate you may have tried it on for size) All “tags” and labels should be intact.

Please remember: If a garment is being returned it MUST be resaleable – So we are unable to accept an item that is screwed up and not in the condition where it can go back on the shelf
  • If you are returning a worn garment that you feel may have developed a fault the cost of return will be the customers resposibilty and please remember the garment must be washed before sent, any garment returned unclean will be rejected.
  • Also enclose a copy of the original sales receipt. If a manufacturing fault is confirmed the following applies. If the garment is under 6 weeks old a exchange or refund can be requested. If over 6 weeks then the garment can only be exchanged
