    We bought our house brand new 6 years ago and recently I have noticed what appears to be oil or solvent inside a couple of the double glazing units - see attached photo. At the moment there is no evidence of any internal condensation but I'm wondering if these "oil leaks" indicate failure of the seals. Can anyone advise on this?

    Hi,
    may be the low quality of the sealing (e.g. butyl) used
