We know that there is dampness in the structure, but my colleague wasn't sure if the dehumidifiers were extracting anything more than just typical airborne moisture. I was hoping there'd be some ribnetters who would have some experience of basic dehumdifiers and be able to say whether 2 pints per day was either alot or not very much.
Autch.. did not know, then you more than enough(and me
)! But anyway its a interesting and challenging subject, water do sometimes travels in unbelievable ways.
