No - don;t just suck it up. It's only by complaining that we can nudge concrete paving manufacturers to keep looking for ways to improve the curing cycle.
Years ago, similar consumer pressure drove some of the better manufacturers, including Tobermore, to invest in cutting-edge curing techniques that all but eliminated efflorescence by injecting various gases and steam into the curing chamber over that critical first few hours. If we, as consumers, don't whinge and whine when we're unhappy, then we've no right to complain when manufacturers and suppliers do nowt! And that's true for everything we buy - cars, houses, holidays, ready meals, the lot - not just hard landscaping.
Let us know when you hear more.....
