Where's your other thread 'Wanted: Headache Tablets' ? wink

Can you not buy a small one? Don't think they're massively expensive. I borrowed my mum's a while ago when I refitted the bathroom because the old shower leaked and soaked the floorboards.

Good luck with your damp patch...

Father Christmas.. what a barstard.

Actually I've just had a look they are more expensive than I thought...

Maybe keep an eye on freecycle or ebay? Might get a bargain?

Can highly recommend Hygiene Supplies Direct for best prices and fast delivery, if you want to buy new. Just got their excellent EH1207 for 92 delivered.

Much better to cure the cause of the damp patch. De-humidifiers aren't cheap to run if there is a continual source of humidity.

I have used them, my advice is that if you aren't going to plumb in a waste pipe, get one with a bigger tank, otherwise the things are auto-off with a full tank too often.

The first 10 days or so, expect it to run nearly continually as the carpets, walls, furniture etc release their water content.
