As I don't want the plastering pulling in on me cheers all..

You'll be fine, don't need to give it another coat tomorrow

How long do you have to wait for your pva to go hard?

I use the cementone stuff from b and q and not had any problems......by the way everyone dont know what you pay for boards but at b and q if you have a pallet 6 x 3's knauf boards £3.59 including vat and delivery

Depends on the suction... but not normally long :D The last few jobs I have done have meant that I spend one day PVAing and then skim from there on in....
