Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by diversity210 Turned my weekend project into a one day project.......awsome
Used this to set in 4x4 pressure treated wood that were to be used as fence posts. I love the stuff. Now I dont put up a lot of fences, nor do I use a lot of concrete, but this stuff was easy to use and worked very well for my application. The reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because 2 out of the four bags has some concrete in them that was unusable. Like it had gotten wet and some of the concrete in the bag was solidified already. Other than that. The stuff dries fairly fast and holds strong. Made a weekend project into a one day project which is great in my book. Steak in the 4x4 so that they remain straight. Pour dry mix into the whole then pour in enough water to penetrate all of the concrete and wallah move on. Its great. No need for premixing unless that is just what you want to do.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SJMcD Works well, but may not get all you pay for
Recently bought 5 bags of this from the El Cajon store. Used it the next day and found that four of the five bags had portions of the cement that was already rock solid and not usable. This store has the cement outside and I don't know if this is why this happened. The portions I was able to use worked as advertised. I will either get it from another store where it is stored inside, and make sure is it all loose, or pick another product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brian Works well but always mix prior to pouring
Never pour in dry and add water afterwards, always a possibility it will not penetrate all material and set
properly, buy a spade and cement tub for a few dollars and mix the cement before pouring and do not
wait to long, it starts to harden fast. Again, make sure to mix before use, directions say you can pour in
dry and add water but save yourself a possible headache and mix prior before use. Otherwise
product works fine

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dingo Lars recommended the higher priced item because it would dry quickly and since we are installing posts..
Sakrete is a good product and my salesman recommended a faster drying product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Phase2 Worked as indicated on bag
I purchased this product after my stockade fence fell during a storm. The previous owner of my property set the poles in sand so of course that didn't withstand much wind. I didn't want this to be a major project spanning multiple days so I jumped at the possibility of quick set no mix concrete. The day I used this product it was 34 degrees outside so I did as directed and added hot water in the quantity indicated. After putting tools away ,I took a shower and changed clothes. In that amount of time (approx 45 mins) it had set solid .. I'm very happy with this product for the use described, note however that the finish was rocky since there was no need to smooth it for a finished look since I covered it with dirt after photo but for setting poles the red bag product works great.

I have used this product several times in the past. After adding water take a piece of rebar or a sturdy stick and push down into the wet mix, moving it around a little. this helps the water reach all parts of the mix. Not a full stir, just a wiggle or two.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mudpuppy GREAT
My Jack Russell dug a large hole in front of my chain link gate. it took the hole bag to fill it up. I used hot water since the temperature was 41. It set up in 30 minutes. Just like any other thing I get from Home Depot it was a great product. exceeded my expectations. Definitely will buy more when needed.
