good find ordered mine 2: left in llandudno :roll:

saw this on MSE a while ago, be suprised if there's any left!

I was considering this myself then realised the this is the 2 coat kind.

B&Q only stock the one coat version which is about £1 cheaper than Homebase's 1 coat price. So saves time and hopefuly money.

Heat added tho.

Checked 10 stores locally and plenty of stock :thumbsup:

I dont think it is a misprice its £12 odd at screwfix

But as I got a leaflet today about a 15% off day coming up its not bad

Thanks Mate, just wot I was looking for.......

Sorry to be dumb, but what exactly does this do?

I have a few bricks where the fronts have sheared off, preumably due to water and/or frost damage, would this prevent any further issues? More importantly, does it work?

It seals things to stop water penetrating and causing damage, its very good stuff

Cheers mate, got one at edinburgh Straiton (2 left there now). Need it for porous roof tiles! :thumbsup:

I assume you would need an absolute shedload of these to cover a house totally...?

hmmm, dont houses need to breathe? Im sure that moisture is expelled through the bricks so as well as not allowing moisture in you are also not allowing moisture out..potential mould problems???

Isnt that what airbricks are for ?

From the site :

Thompson's Water Seal utilises hydrophobic technology to deliver invisible protection against water damage. The deep penetrating formulation travels deep into exterior dry porous surfaces to form a breathable membrane that allows moisture vapour inside the substrate to evaporate whilst protecting against water penetration and damage

Hi

I'm thinking of adding an internal stud wall to a single skin half brick wall to make an old garage into a sort of workshop. I'll add a damp proof membrane and insulation too.

Would you recommend i paint the external wall with this too ?

It probably wouldn't do any harm .. would it ?

Agreed lol!!

you might as well paint water on your walls.........waste of time and money!!!

For damp proofing brickwork you cant beat thinned fibreglass resin with acetone........bullet proof!:thumbsup:

Never heard of that one before, in 20years of running my own roofing business!!!

Sounds like you need a new roof matey!!!

we have a expert

Great find, thank you. H&R added

I mean't to post this myself, spotted it about a month ago and grab myself a few tins.
H+R added.

This stuff used to be great before they changed it to a water-based formula. The new 'improved' formula is rubbish --- it just doesn't work. Stay well clear of any water seal that says to clean your brushes in water and takes 24-48 hours to dry!!!. For £7.99 you're buying a can of milky looking water.

I've used this stuff for years, but I'll not be buying it again after the last can - and it always been around this price at B&Q.

Really?

IMHO you'd get a better result by peeing on it! :w00t:

Total ineffective rubbish - don't waste your money or time on it........

Need to be aware that homebase generally wont honour web prices, i had an arguement in there last year about a Dulux offer. They told me to ignore web prices & stock levels because they're nearly always wrong, the website isn't run by them, and the price you pay is the price instore on the day of collection

Thanks just reserved some from newton abbot store 3 left 1 in Plymouth 1 in Exeter

Nice shout THANKS :whistling::-D:-D:-D:-D:-

Too right , ordered some lights on Wednesday , 16 instore stock , went to collect yesterday , sorry sir we have none !!!!!!!

Crap company with a crap stock checker .

Great deal...just picked mine up. Ready and waiting for me at collect point. Priced at £7.99 for 5 litres. Thanks!!

Strangely had 1 litre on shelf for £7.99 and 2.5 litre for £13.99!

I have had 15 tins of this H&R, great find.

Its now over, I ordered the last 4 on 20th for collection by close of play today...... But when I got to the store it was £19.99 a tin, they got the manager and he honored the reservation and let me have them for £7.99. He said there had been a nationwide price increase on 21st.

Just checked online and its also £19.99 there too..... great while it lasted.
