Customer Questions & Answers

can this product be used on a shower floor?

Asked by: brian
Yes, but it isn't great for that. Go buy the stuff from the tile shop - it packs much better and has no pebbles. It's an extra buck 50 or so per bag, but they give you 80lbs not 60.

Can I use a loose mixture of this sand mix to fill a void under a sidewalk?

Can I use a loose mixture of this sand mix to fill a void under a sidewalk?
Asked by: Tom
No, this would not be the material to use for that application. You will need a fluid product to fill that void. Non-Shrink Construction grouts work well if the void is not too deep. Construction Grouts are typically used from 1" to 4" in thickness.

In response to a question on Nov 16, 2015 about using this product for fireplace hearth, Sackrete Customer service wrote that ".....Then tile after 16 hrs. from the time of application. Do not wait longer than 24 hrs. to tile. If you wait longer than 24 hrs., then you will have to wait 28 days before tile can be applied". I am using this product in a shower base for the top layer above the PVC liner. Is it also true in this case that I need to tile within 24 hrs or otherwise need to wait 28 days?
Asked by: Ted
This product has mortar bed instructions and doesn't say anything like that. I let mine cure for 3 days before tiling. You can contact Sakrete and ask them the question. They're pretty responsive to emails.

Can Sand mix be used in a mold to create 29"x29"x.5" walking tiles?

Will it be strong enough once mortared onto a 4" thick cement slab surface? Will it crack?
Asked by: Mattax
This material would crack if you made walking tiles out of it. This is a repair material for concrete slabs, overlays over a concrete slab, floor mud for shower floors, setting material for pavers over concrete slab, and or grouting pavers placed over a concrete slab.

60 lb. Sand Mix is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 14.

Over the years, I've used Sand Mix to fill-in and replace missing parts of sidewalks on small projects. Recently I used it to level a 12' x 12' patio that went from 1/2" to more than 2" It mixes well and allows plenty of time to work with it before it sets. I raised the patio more than originally planned and needed additional material and this product worked well enough to tie-in with the first set without cracks. Note: Lanco Bonding Agent was used where the new work capped the original slab.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mortar shower pan...follow instructions! I was happy with the product for use in laying a shower pan for tile. Water proof membrane stuck to it well. End result was solid. Just a warning: I have seen more than one DIY website that suggests adding sand to sand topping mix for the right ratio of sand to cement (at least 4 to 1). Since sand topping mixes are typically 3 to 1, you are supposed to add sand to make it a good consistency for a shower pan. My experience is that this does not work with this product. I added sand and the pan turned out crumbly. Follow the instructions for a shower pan on the back (no additional sand required). The consistency should be just moist and crumby, but packs into "snowballs" that hold together. Do this and your pan will turn out right the first time :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NOT FOR SHOWERS Use Sakrete Floor Mud of Deck Mud for shower pre slope and bed. Same product difference name depending on region. It's a 5:1 mixture of sand to cement. Sand Mix is usually used in showers by amateurs. Floor, Deck and Sand in showers needs to be dry packed, very little water. If done right 5:1 has a 3000 lbs. Floor and deck mud uses a finer sand. Sand mix is used for setting walk way of brick and flagstone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! Purchased to provide the floor foundation for a tiled-shower install. Sets-up perfectly, no issues!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why does it have gravel? I fail to understand why this sand mix has so much gravel. I have used other sand mixes and I don't run into this problem. I often like to mix a sand mix with certain fortifiers that allow a sand mix to be troweled to a feather edge. With this one it's next to impossible unless I pick out the gravel by hand which is very time-consuming. I have remember running into this problem before about two years ago, but I had completely forgotten and bought it again. Now I have quite a few bags which I might return and buy something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product is easy to work with. We used this product to both build a flagstone sidewalk and to patch our driveway. Didn't take but a couple hours with two people to set the sidewalk, but you have to work quickly. The driveway is holding up nicely and we are considering purchasing more cement to complete a much larger section

Rated 2 out of 5 by from OK, but the stuff from the Tile Shop works much better for a shower bed. If you are going to do a shower floor, go to the tile shop and buy their mix. It is about $2 more but they give you 80 lbs. It is much finer,packs much better and has no gravel. I think Sakrete is trying to shave some pennies off their cost by putting a bunch of pebbles in it. Also - this should not be recommended for shower floors because the beginning of the slope and preslope are much less than 1/2 inch, and as the label says, you shouldn't use this for less than 1/2 inch. All that said, it wasn't a total loss. I was able to do my shower floor slope, but the gravel was a real pain and added about 2 hours to the job. I think I might put some thinset over the top to smooth it out before I try to tile. My recommendation - sakrete should make a dedicated shower floor mix. Get rid of the pebbles and charge an extra buck for the bag.
