I found a Pinterest project to update countertops using a more expensive type of concrete and in the comments section of the project someone mentioned this product can be used in it's place, it being just as good and quite a bit less expensive. I'm a novice. This stuff is easy to use and made my countertops look brand new and cool and different. They don't joke around when they say it dries fast too. I made smaller amounts more often and it helped tremendously to cut down waste.

Spreads easily. Mix only a small amount at a time though so that it doesn't harden up on you.

So I screwed up a concrete slab floor repair with sack concrete. I was smart enough to make sure all of the newly poured concrete was below the original floor level figuring I could top it with something prettier! I found this product. My first attempt was with one whole box, mixed in a 5 gallon bucket with the correct amount of water. MISTAKE. I had to spread it across a large area. By the time I was finished spreading it was beginning to firm up. Box says don't add more water, mix again. I did that and it bought me another 5 minutes or so then done. I rushed outside to clean up the tools. I let the bucket set up. When I was back inside i noticed some ridges, humps, and other high spots. I took my 2" scraper and shaved off the lumps, high spots, and other imperfections. It was like cutting through putty for another half hour, then too firm for more but I was in pretty good shape. The results were passable, not great. The finish was nice and smooth.
I had more to do so I bought another box. This time I also bought some small 2.5 qt buckets. That made this go from frustration to a good product. I used a drill mixer, 1 qt (by volume) mix and 1/2 qt of water. Mix for a minute (it didn't splatter) and go. No rush, no panic, just enough to carefully spread around and make it look nice without setting up. Washed everything, mixed another batch, and pressed on. VERY good results when you aren't hurrying. I used this to fill in some old nail divots from carpet tack strip and the floor is smooth, even, and looks nice. It sets in a hurry, which is good, because 30 minutes later I put on another coat where it was needed.
I recommend this product with the following cautions: Mix small batches and have everything ready to go.

This product is good for patching isolated low areas. For my 300 sq ft living room, I used self leveling underlayment to raise 200 sq ft by up to 1/2 inch. Then I used this prodcut to patch isolated spots in the remaining 100 sq ft. This saved me the expense of having to raise the entire 300 sq ft.
I created a new batch for each 4 to 6 sq ft area, and was able to patch each area within the 10-15 minutes work time, After very rough initial smoothing with a putty knife, I went over the area with a 4 ft straight edge to level it out. Then I used a putty knife for the final smoothing and feather edging.
This product did not dry sufficiently in 15 minutes for the surface to be usable. Perhaps it is due to the 60 degree room temperature . It dried in about 4 hours. With a spot heater, I was able to reduce the drying time to 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the thickness of the patch.

Whoever the person was that said to add 1.75 qts. of water and no more must have been drinking some funny stuff. Not only didn't it create a workable mixture, all of the powder didn't even get wet. What a rip off. Wouldn't recommend this product to my worst enemy.
