Answer: 
Per the description, the base requires 2 cubic feet of concrete. A 60lb bag of Quickrete Mix makes approximately .45 cu feet of concrete. So, just under 4.5 bags.

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I needed I needed to pour foundations for six columns for a carport I'm building. These plastic footings were just the right thing. They're expensive, almost $20 a piece when you throw in shipping, but they do not have to be disposable, at least for me because the upper cones were all less than a foot in length. I needed six foundations, and I used the same plastic footing for each one. Just coat the inside of the footing with motor oil, and about six hours after pouring the concrete in the footing mold, scrape away excess concrete over the form and pull the tabs out of concrete at the base of the cone. At about eight to ten hours, tap all around with a plastic mallet and gently pull up and coax the plastic mold away from the concrete. leaving the cone in place. You can tear the cardboard cone off later. September 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Redi Base These worked great with the concrete tubes. Makes a great footing base for posts. October 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works for me Impressed the contractor, added extra stability to my column, expect that this will keep it vertical through the winter. August 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked good, just have to dig wider holes! Easy to install the redibase on the concrete tube, instructions state to use duck tape, but redibase website says masking tape can be used also. A lot more digging is involved than just using a concrete tube. October 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Did the trick Had to dig nine 24" dia. holes for a deck and roof structure. They worked like a charm. It would be great if they made this in a 16" dia version. August 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to Use Footer Form The footer form was easy to add to 12" tubes. It held up well to the backfill and poured with no issues. July 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Durable and easy to use Easy to use. No tools required the base attaches to tube with duct tape. Fits all sizes of tubes really well. It takes about 1 minute to attach with duct tape, so easy. November 4, 2013
