What type of damp proof solution to inject?


Postby Danjam10 » Sun Jan 30, 2011 6:49 pm

I have a late victorian terrace house with significant rising damp issues in the kitchen (ground floor). I have had damp proof people round who would inject a damp proof course and replaster but their charges are high - so i plan to do this myself.

I plan to hire an injection pump, but i can't get any sensible advice on which fluid or cream to use. I'm sure there are good and bad products. Triton products were suggested by a damp proof guy - but i don't think they sell direct. Any advice on what to use or avoid would be really appreciated.

Danjam10,
From experience my preference is the clear solvent based silicone fluid, I am sure others will advise different products.

Thanks Stoneyboy

In the end having spoken to some of the manufacturers i went for Dryzone cream - which i bought a gun and cartridges for. Not super cheap but the advice was that this was as effective as a pump treatment and easier for the first timer to apply. Plus - now i have the gun i will be able (as i'm sure i'll need to elsewhere in the house) buy more cartridges and treat other areas at a later point.

I'll report back on results in a month or so.
