Science of Electro-Osmosis

How it Works

In a natural environment ground water can rise from ground level to a height of several meters in a building’s walls over time. This is a physical phenomenon known as osmosis. The DryHomes Station emits a specific form of environmentally friendly, low frequency weak electromagnetic waves causing reverse osmosis. This means that water particles in the wall’s capillaries start moving opposite to the initial direction i.e. towards the ground and the atmosphere. As a result, the water is forced back to the ground and to the air and walls lose their moisture until they are dry.

  • The DryHomes Station is installed permanently while the building continues to be used normally.
  • The unit is usually installed on the basement wall, in a central location for the range of DryHomes Station’s electromagnetic waves to cover the area of the entire building.
  • The DryHomes Station is left on, even after drying is complete, because its continuous emission of electromagnetic waves creates an invisible membrane around the building, preventing re-absorption of water.

The time required to dry a building ranges from 2 to 12 months and depends on variety of factors, for example: material type used to build walls and their thickness, initial amount of moisture and its salt content. In exceptional cases the drying process may take up to 36 months.

The cost of running DryHomes Station equals to its electricity consumption and is about $1 monthly.
