Rot in timber deck
I have a small area of rot in a timber (ply) deck.
I believe Blue 7 is the ideal treatment after I've cut out the rotted timber; however, Blue 7 is off the market at the moment (the distributors tell me) because it is being reclassified as a poison.
Can anyone suggest another product I could use to (a) kill any remaining rot and (b) prevent further rotting?

This (the deck rotting) may end up being an ongoing problem for you because as far as I know there is no ply suitable for exterior decking. I assume it's exterior, otherwise it's a floor. Even marine grade ply, which is horrendously expensive is not suitable in this application without some form of waterproof membrane. If you give us a bit more information we may be able to advise further. (BTW, "we" is not the royal plural here, I mean other forum memebers and myself. ).
