I've heard that you Crisin product is good for tackling rising damp, but was wondering how it actually works to stop the damp itself? Also may I ask what sets the Koster system apart from the other systems out there?

Well, rising damp itself is cause by capillary action, the idea of the Crisin system is to use this very capillary action to work through the wall. One advantage of this system as appose to pressure injection is that in the occurrence of voids in the voids in the wall, no material is lost. Furthermore, in contrast to other systems, our system enters the wall at a parallel to the ground, other systems enter at angles which is far harder to judge, and often ends up in the damp problem not being solved. The Koster system is patented meaning that there really is no other system the same as ours.
