    Default rising damp solutions?

    We have a Bluestone house in SA, built without a dampproof course, and consequent rising damp in the walls up to about 600mm. Most of it is not too bad but some spots are! Has anyone had experience with chemical drill and squirt damp solutions, either diy of professionally done? Not too far of doing some major work and that will be one of the first tasks.
