    Whatever you do, DON'T use pva as an undercoat/sealer at "any" time if you're using emulsion. It's not suitable for painting onto,,,,,,,,,,,, ever!!!!!!!!!
    It sounds like your problem is efflorescence/salts coming through the plaster from the brick/stonework Difficult to get rid of quickly. If it's on an external wall, check you have no damp/moisture penetration in that area, coming in from the outside.
