    I've checked, from time to time, on reasons purported to be behind the condition for pooling - also known as water marking - in carpet. Despite the technology existing in our industry, the problem of pooling is one that still begs for a definitive answer as to its cause.

    I've read causes suggesting magnetic fields to everything in between. Yet, this vexing problem still exists without an answer as to its cause.

    Any thoughts?

    I saw a guy with a TV wand, from the old days where they came to your house and fixed your TV. The guy held it above the carpet and moved it back and forth across the pooling on the carpet and then vacuumed it, and it was gone.

    This was 20 years ago, at least.

    Say serious?

    I conducted a recent search and found nothing, save for a suggestion that if one were to install the same carpet again that it (the pooling) would happen in the same spot again. Strange this.

    What was he degaussing? The carpet? The subfloor?

    Had to be the carpet because it could possibly react to a static charge.
    That's weird, Perry... are you one of Art Bells regular listeners? :D
