They Wjere cold and wetvtkv'Wlnter.'vM-any farmers believed this'was' caused by .capillary action of ground water,-that is, moisture oozing upward from the ground through the concrete partioiesovBut. this was«not neces-' sarily the explanation. It may have been true in some cases, but many agricultural engineers held that the wet concrete floor was caused by moist air inside -the building, droppin&.part of its moisture-load when it'came in contact/with the flaw^Jieeause the floor was colder than the inside air itself. Ordinary concrete, of course, is a goofi conductor of heat and cold. 'n L*t me tell you about a farmer near Humbollt, Iowa, who made a prettxi conclusive demonstration. This'man''had' a fine set of buildings, with- a concrete floor in each. His floors were always wet in winter, and he believed it was due to seepage »or. capillary action of grouha**W#ter,' He, was about to build a new' poultry house, and was determined that the new con- cretepfiaW'WOUld be absplutely impervious to • ground water. ,So, he .placed a six inch grave} .fill. Ove.r tha.t went a four inch sla.c of OKtUflajy concrete. Qn top fli that, he mopped' thirty,gallons pf asphalt. Finally, he Placed; another concreet slab. 'What happened? That floor was just as wet as ;any he his farm, Clearly, .the moisture was not coming from the ground. He went along with it for two years, and then he heard about'- Zonolite Insulating Concrete In. the surrfmer of 1944. he decided;, to... t?y it, 'and put two Fneftl over the old floor.
