    Does anyone know where I can buy a damp meter by Monday?

    Wasn't anticipating I'd use one as lots online. Today I've been to Wickes (none) ScrewFix ( none) Homebase ( none) and B&Q ( 1 @ £42) only want to spend maximum £20 as don't anticipate using it more tan once-- and that has to be on Monday.

    Thanks anyone who can help.

    sorry, but if the need by monday is so urgent then £42 from B&Q sounds reasonable to me.

    Buy it, use it, then stick it on ebay or in fun classifieds.

    Aw thank you. Sadly, I'm other end of country :Sad:

    Think it might well be back to B&Q tomorrow, as suggested.

    Aldi had them for £12 don't know if there's any left though, and you might as feel if the walls are wet for what good they are:Doh::Doh:

    could be the same predicament as us......

    Nearest toolstation shop is York...80 miles round trip and £15 in diesel

    Nearest machine mart shop is Hull....as above.

    Kinda negates the cheaper price compared to B&Q.......less than a mile away.

    True John - and it's nice to know there is actually somewhere worse than Tees-side when it comes to retail outlets :BigGrin:

    I bought the £42 item from B&Q earlier this week to check the ceiling myself before its annual Hab check. If I didn't want it any more I'd stick it on eBay described as 'nearly new' for £30 with free P&P, then after eBay fees and £2.60 postage I'd have spent only about £20 on it.

    And quoting the post about MachineMart too.

    Sorry --- senior moment-- I thought these were online ordering only.duh! Can now see I can either drive to Bath tomorrow or pick one up Monday in Torquay.
    Problem solved.

    HUGE thanks guys--- you're always so helpful & a really knowledgeable bunch.
    Cheers.

    I take it you have no experience of the meters? I bought 4 for a fiver each (reduced) and the two I tried worked every bit as good as my old £100 plus one giving the same readings- :thumb:Good kit for not a lot of money :thumb:would recommend them to anyone :thumb:and I don't recommend things lightly :Wink:
