    interesting. I did just swap each battery at a time, rather than pull all out then put new in. How long a discharge is required? 10 seconds enough?

    Do you know where's best/cheapest place to get a tub of ardex DPM1c? I don't need much. And then once it's down and set, can I just put the next part of flooring down on top, such as the ceramic tiles or whatever I choose? Any technique tips for applying it? Thanks

    Cupboard under stairs concrete floor possible damp issue?

    Thats part of the mystery, not sure if water is actually seeping in from underneath, or there's just bad air circulation? This space is off the kitchen, so cooking steam etc could well get trapped in here.

    Daft question I know, but I only have a a small amount of rubber seal left, obviously I should buy more, but wonder if all windows have 2 seals, and if so which is the most important to replace?
