Dryrod Damp-Proofing Rods - High performance rising damp treatment

Dryrod Damp-Proofing Rods are a new high performance rising damp treatment. All that is required to permanently stop rising damp in your property is to drill holes along a continuous mortar course and then insert the damp-proofing rods. The rods will distribute water-repellent material along the mortar, using our patented delivery system, and then cure to form a damp-proof course. The wall will then dry out. No fuss, no mess and no stress.

The patented rod delivery system is not only faster, cleaner and easier than other forms of rising damp treatment, making it suitable for DIY damp proofing, it is also more effective. Unlike previous methods, which require measured application with specialist tools, a Dryrod Damp-Proofing Rod of the specified length will deliver the correct dosage every time. A wall treated with our damp-proofing rods is also over four times more resistant to rising damp than the next best treatment method. 

Dryrod - the premium rising damp treatment.


Each damp-proofing rod will treat approximately 120mm (linear) of wall. The rods are available in the following formats:

  • Foil packs of 10 rods - 1.2 metre coverage
  • Boxes of 50 rods - 6 metre coverage

Dryrod Damp-Proofing Rods Application Instructions

  1. Mark the drill bit at the required drilling depth
    Mark your drill bit to the appropriate depth for the wall you wish to treat. A Dryzone 12 mm Drill Bit is recommended for enhanced debris removal.
  2. Set the SDS drill to rotary hammer mode
    Set your SDS drill to rotary hammer mode and attach the suitably marked drill bit.
  3. Drill holes at the required drilling depth at 120 mm intervals
    Identify the lowest horizontal mortar course that is accessible and continuous. Drill holes to the full recommended depth, at regular 120 mm intervals along the wall. As the drill bit approaches the final 40 mm of the intended hole depth, make sure to reduce the pressure you are putting on the drill. Excessive drilling pressure on the rotary hammer setting can result in damage to the far side of the wall.
  4. Remove any excess debris using the Dryrod Hole-Clearing Tool
    If debris obstructs the insertion of the damp-proofing rods, the Dryrod Hole-Clearing Tool can be used to ensure the hole is completely clear.
  5. Wearing suitable gloves, cut the Dryrods to the required length
    A standard Dryrod Damp-Proofing Rod is 180 mm in length, which is the exact length required to treat a standard 9″ wall. If the wall is thinner than 9″ then cut the rods down until they are 10 mm shorter than the length of the hole. If the wall is thicker than 9″, cut a second rod down until its length is 10 mm less than the excess left after inserting one whole rod.
  6. Insert the Dryrods into the holes
    Fully insert the rods into each hole, ensuring that the rods are recessed approximately 5 mm from the brick face, taking care not to compress the rods against the back of the holes.
