Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin As advertised!
Was concerned when I read the review of the guy who "read the directions to the letter". He said he used a gallon of water, it actually asks you to use 3 parts MIX to 1 part water, so about 1 pint of water, not a gallon! I called the company from their website to confirm, they were very helpful and said do NOT use 1 gallon of water. It does call for a 1 gallon bucket, but the instructions in mixing clearly call for 3 parts mix to 1 part water, NOT 1 gallon of water

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mltsept not what I expected
If you use this product, you better use a mechanical mixer.
I tried it by hand and it lumped badly.
Also, if your using it on larger spots you better hurry.
It drys very quickly
I used 10 pounds with two quarts of the additive and it was very thick.
If I used it again, I wouldn't add all of the powder for a thinner mix.
The only good thing, if it's mixed correctly, it drys fast.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Homesteader Best floor leveler.
Used this to feather where I cut out curled sheet vinyl @walls. Just mixed by hand in a drywall mud pan W/A margin trowel a little at a time. Kind of self leveling,but was easy to light sand using a 1/4 sheet sander. Makes a lot of dust so wear a mask.Primed after a damp cloth rub final cleaning.Self- stick vinyl went on perfect over existing floor in a small bathroom & had 0 transfer because it was so flat. If you're not going with Luan (which is quicker) this does the job. Going to use it for filling the pock marks left from carpet tack strip removal on a concrete floor. Great for vinyl floor Prep.Todays Vinyl looks so good I'm over using tile floors in baths & kitchens.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DYIGA2014 Excellent Product
The dry floor patch was easy to mix. It installed with little effort. It made a good surface to install vinyl sheeting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smith 3 lb box will not cover 40 sq ft, other than that its ok
Description on line says it will cover 40 sq ft, that is incorrect, that is the 25 lb bag. I exchanged for the 25 lb bag. They both work the same, they do the job. Takes a while to mix and you need to work fast with a masonry trowel. If you mix too much water it will not work well. If you find your mud is getting too thick to work (drying out) you can add just a bit of water and give yourself more time. Clean up as soon as your done as it sets up quickly. I would buy this again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nick seems fine
In the hands of a pro this is good stuff. Mix it to a proper consistency and apply quickly. It needs to dry fast so the floor guys can set vinyl in short time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sdj418 Nothing but Gray water...
I purchased two of the 3 lb boxes to use to patch/skimcoat a bathroom floor (total of 40 sq. ft.). Following the directions to the letter, I added the powder to a gallon of water, and mixed using a drill mixing paddle. After reading the directions, I was nervous about the speed that the product would set...however, after mixing for 10 minutes...waiting...mixing some more, DOUBLING the powder (using the entire second box), mixing, waiting, and then at the end of 45 minutes (30 minutes after it was supposed to have set), I had nothing but GRAY WATER! I let it sit in the bucket another 30 minutes, but still nothing but gray water. Nothing I could 'trowel', and if I had poured it on the floor I would have had a horrible mess. Very unimpressed--unless I just had a bad batch, this stuff is worthless!
