    Read what Matrix wrote, you should remove all the old aluminium window, no point going to that much trouble if all you achieve is sound still coming in through the old aluminium frames and gaps from the original install.

    It never fully resettles, the damage is done but it is after all only a post hole so not a big deal. When dry remove the loose fill you tossed back in, then take a shaving all round most likely you will have quite a stable wall in the post hole. Don't overthink it, if the ground gets that wet you will never have a rock solid post during wet periods but will be stable when dry.

    I have found the black liquid rubber type waterproofing to be long lasting, it all fails in the end, you need to get up an inspect every so often.

    The ground is waterlogged, best approach is back fill and wait until it dries out. Try again after a couple of weeks of dry weather.

Refilling with soil reduces the scale to a hole rather than a crater

    johnc replied to a thread Corona Virus in At the end of the day
    I don't think anyone on these "sport" Visa's should be allowed into the country unvaccinated, no exceptions. The curious case of Novak is that initially Scotty blamed Victoria for approving the Visa then next day claimed to have fixed the problem as Border Force had cancelled it. Visa's are a Commonwealth responsibility, regardless of representations from Tennis Australia or any Victorian health officials who submitted information to the Federal department (Border Force) who then assess and...
