Double or triple the dry time. Too thick to spread nicely or evenly. Don't try this stuff unless you live in the desert. DAP needs to do a major remodel on this product!

I have applied regular white joint compound before it fix nail pops, small hole and cracks. Bought this product because of a recommendation from a store associate. It was the worst purchase ever. It's thick and gooey, when dry shrinks in to the open surface leaving diverts requiring more than 2 coats for a screw hole. With the time wasted using this product it was a very expensive purchase. Do yourself a favor buy regular old white joint compound and leave the Dap High performance dry indicator (pink) on the shelf.

The "goes on pink, dries white" is a cute gimmick. Unfortunately, the compound does not handle well on the knife. It is very stiff, and it's wet adhesion is inconsistent. (And, yes, I did damp-wipe surfaces before applying.) Once dry, it produced many air bubbles, requiring an additional coat after painting. Its probably OK for nail holes, but not taping or skim coating. I bought a plain, old-fashioned pail of white compound at my hardware store for 1/2 the price! The 'plain' joint compound went on 10x easier than this pink stuff.

We used this product to repair as well as tape and float sheet rock after removing wall paper. We bought it because it was premixed, to save time. It is very thick much thicker than “mix your own” joint compound I have mixed in the past. It also dried slower, it does change colors as it dries but it takes a while to completely dry. I think it is good for small patches and repairs but next time I will mix my own to do major floating and cover ripped paper.

Takes forever to dry, and if you put it on thick to fill a crack, it cracks. Truly is junk.

DIY bathroom remodel project. Was sent to pickup store 2 gal paint and 5 gallon bucket of joint compound premixed. Paint Rep in said they didn't have joint compound in 5gal and gave me this instead. Used it and found it had an unusual texture, color and smell. I was skeptical but it was already on the wall. It did dry white so thought not bad but when I went to seal my new tile and grout found there were areas where dust must have landed. Low and behold I couldn't get it out of the grout so some areas turn pink when the tile is wet. Bummer cause we worked so hard to put in the tile and grout and then this happens. They should have a warning on the label.

I've done a good amount of drywall work--both new and repair. This stuff is terrible; it shrinks more than any product I have ever used, forcing one to put on way too many layers; it cracks while drying, the texture is gooey and not easy to work with, the pink disappears long before it is dry, and it takes forever to dry. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone--novice or expert, nor for any project. I am about ready to take it back to the store for a refund. Save yourself a lot of time and frustration--don't buy it!
