I started this project yesterday after pressure washing and letting the surface dry out completely and purchased three 40lb buckets. My first thought when I looked at the entire area was that I had not bought enough, as the instructions say it will cover 25 sqft. I applied one bucket (40lbs) yesterday to half my deck and I would guesstimate the area is around 16ft by 22 ft, so approx.. 350 sqft. It's a lot of sweeping back and forth to make sure you get all the sealer off the paver before wetting it down. But so far this morning everything looked great. I am going to seal it after I finish the other half probably using the Sakrete wet-look paver seal.
Good luck!

Power wash in the direction of each joint (you'll need to wash all sides). Any sand which persists is secure enough to act as an effective bed for the new coating. Just make sure you get down at least 1/4" below the bottom of the paver's edge chamfer so the new sand has an adequate gripping surface.

Answer: 
I don't believe you would need to remove all the old sand. If you had about a half inch below the bevel on the edge of the brick this should work fine. Don't try to fill above the bevel or over water. Also allow for the recommended dry time of 24 hours.

Once the paver/bricks (and joints) are dry, carefully apply the PermaSand following the written instructions. Expect to sweep, sweep, sweep and sweep again to work the PermaSand into all of the crevices. Good Luck!!

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 81 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Looks like... well... sand. Hard as concrete Used this for a slightly different use. I have really old concrete walkways, over 70 years old, where all the pressure relief cracks have cracked all the way through, and small cracks had developed in other spots. Weeds were growing so fast I couldn't stop them. So I drilled out the cracks to get out all the dirt and plant matter, blew them clean, and filled the cracks with polymer sand. Looks good. Honestly, if you look from even directly above, it just looks like plain old beach sand. It's not hard at all to work with. I just used a funnel to get the sand evenly into the cracks, and smoothed it out with my finger. Then sprayed the sand with a gallon sprayer nice and even. It was dry in minutes, and about as hard as the concrete around it. August 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great if use a vibrator compactor to install I used this product when installing a 60 foot front walkway. It was much cheaper than joint sand for sale at the dedicated hardscape yard where I purchased pavers. I used a vibratory compactor to get cracks between the bricks filled. I had to reapply sand and vibrate seven times before joint sand stopped settling (aka disappearing in to the spaces between pavers). Without using a vibratory compactor, I do not think I could have properly filled the joints. I think much of the dissatisfaction with this product is due it is due to incomplete filling of the joints. Sakrete does not help by seeming to indicate the product can be properly installed without using a vibratory compactor. Installation without a compactor might work if the gaps between the pavers are large I suppose. With small joint widths, my experience would indicate one would not get complete joint fill without using a vibratory compactor. They rent vibratory compactors at many Home Depots. September 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use and fills in well This product is easy to use and fills the joints well. Follow the instructions on the bucket as this will walk you through the pre-cleaning to make sure the joints are clean. Applying is very easy as the sand spreads well and fills in the joints as you sweep over the area. Once filled than you can sweep off the excess and apply the water and let dry. This product goes a long way as I used on a walkway and hardly needed much to complete. I hope it prevents the weeds and growth as it states on the pail. August 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works so far I am pleased with the results. My patio has large spaces between the small interlocking pavers. Weeds would grow between. I tried sand but that didn't work. To prepare pulled the weeds, used a blower to remove dirt and debris, and swept this product in between the cracks. I tried to sweep off any residue on the pavers themselves. Then I used the blower again but kept a distance this time. I then used almost a mist from the hose to cover the area. The results are good and hopefully will last. August 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This stuff is far better than I thought... I had pavers to do around the pool and put it off for years ---- I power-washed everything and blew out all the grass, weeds, moss, and junk which was between the pavers. I ended up with empty cracks between all the stones, which is exactly how you want it setup. Let it dry and hit it with the blower several times to make sure all is removed and its as clean as can be. I bought two of these, hoping it would be enough for my 15x27' pool. It was. The install is pretty simple, just need a broom! Dump the stuff around the stones and sweep in. I found that a smaller broom is far better than a large shop broom as it allows to maneuver the sand as needed -- around the holes for the fence and away from the edges. I suppose it slows you down a bit in the process, but it’s well worth it. It took about 2 hours to get all the sand “installed”. Now came the important part where you need the blower to remove the excess. The label suggests to use a blower at hip height.. which is fairly accurate. I didn’t know how much to blow off, as you want to remove all excess so it doesn’t stain, but not so much that you start pulling the sand from the cracks. It’s a bit of grey area where you have to use your best judgement. This the hardest part. Once that was done, you just wet it carefully with the hose – making sure you don’t blow any out of the cracks. I used a hose with sprayer and shot it in the air so the water came down like a soft rain. Let it try and then did again about an hour later. The product needs a couple of days to cure, so make sure no rain is in forecast for at least 2-3 days. The best part was that the stuff cures like cement! It’s not sand as I think it would be, rather actually hard filling. Can’t speak to how long or durable, but it looks great, and will definitely keep out the weeds and ants. June 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by please with product We used this to lay a small walkway. We followed instructions and we never had a problem. This product spreads well, however I started with a large broom but I recommend using a smaller broom because it makes it easier to get down in the crack. You simply just fill in all your cracks with the sand, sweep off the excess from your pavers and wet down thoroughly. It set up just like concrete. Very please. Can not say how long it will last because it has only been about 3 weeks. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works as advertised This is easy to use and fills cracks quickly. I used it for cracks in driveway concrete and am quite pleased with the results. It cured in under 24 hours and is almost invisible. The key to success is applying the water as directed. I used a garden sprayer and made 3 passes with a fine spray, saturating the sand completely but not applying too much water that would have caused the polymer to float away. September 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't waist your money, I bought 7-8 buckets of this stuff spent the day sweeping it into my paver driveway , blew the excess dust off and carefully watered it in and the product never firmed up.. After every big rain a bit more washes out. At 8X -10X the price of sand I would expect better. September 4, 2016
