I was planning to use this to fill my paver cracks, but my plan was to do 1/8" spacing for the pavers. Is this going to be too small to use the PermaSand for my application?

If pavers are already layed and moss is growing between some does it need to be removed? If so how should that be done?
Asked by: Steve
I have used the moss and algae killer that is available at home depot. Spray it with water and allow at least 8 hours for moss to be killed. Following that I typically use a pressure washer (at least 1700 PSI) with narrowest spray and aimed at the moss. It is a pain but needs to be done. Then use push broom to wipe it away. Wait a day or two before applying polymeric sand. End by spraying water and leave it alone for 24 hours.

I used power wash to clean my pavers. Can I apply PermaSand even if the sides of the pavers are a little wet? Or it must be dry?

Asked by: AJ
Must be completely dry. This material begins to solidly on contact with water.

How much do i need for a 100 sq ft area

Asked by: Meh
I believe that each bucket will cover 30-40 sq ft with 3/8 inch maximum joint spaces. The coverage is listed on the side of the bucket and also in the description.

I took extra care to make sure all the dust was off the top of the pavers and used a garden sprayer to apply the water that way I could run the water off the paver into the joint to ensure the paver was thoroughly cleaned. the sand did seem to become solid and in that aspect it did perform according to the product. however the pavers now look horrible with white staining over more than half of them. See the attached photos.

Yes, It is not a throw it down without work type product. The biggest areas of attention are in preparation. You MUST tamp. It doesn't have to be an actual tamper, as I used a 3 ft piece of 4 x 4. Even if you think joints are full, tamping will prove they are not. Clean up before wetting. The more texture or porous your pavers are , the more important this is. Any sand left on the surface will become bonded after wetting. When you think it is good enough, do it again! Sweep, vacuum or blow, whatever it takes to make sure the surface is clear of sand. If you have done good job of tamping, don't worry about joints being level full. In fact, probably better if slightly recessed. Wetting. If you have adequate slope, I would consider putting end of hose on paver and trickle water onto surface. I did not do this but even shower setting will wash out some sand, particularly if they are over filled. Would I use it again, yes. Would I recommend it yes. Just be aware it does take some time and diligence. That's will hard scrapers get paid big bucks. I am giving it a 4 rating only because the instructions were not specific enough, in my opinion in regards to necessity of prep. Without the prep you will be dissatisfied. If you are willing to do the work, I think you will be satisfied, otherwise write a big check to a hard scraper. Your choice.

Good product,easy to use justbrush into the joints, tamp and brush some more into the joints again, get your blower and blow the top layer of sand of your blocks and then water. After 48 hours had gone by the patio joints were really hard, no weeds will come through and i also used Brock paver base and it just made the patio solid. Only time will tell. Only thing i didn't like was the price at $20 a pop it's a bit steep. Have a short video on you tube using the sakrete sand. https://youtu.be/z3lS7s2Vh9E

I posted a comment and now I am reviewing the responses from the manufacturer about getting the product off the top of the pavers prior to wetting. Here's the reality to all out there. If you remove every single speck of dust off the paver it doesn't matter. During the process of watering the joints will saturate and the water will naturally start to flow across the top of the paver. This is almost impossible to avoid and since the product has Portland cement in it you are almost guaranteed to see staining. Please heed the 1 and 2 star warnings here and purchase another product.

It only looked great in August when it was applied. It seemed like it was gonna last. Just went outisde this weekend to clean off the walkway and it looks very bad. Weeds starting to grow between all th stone. All the sand coming out of the joint. What a mess. Guess I need to look for another product as I just wasted 200.00 and my time and having to do it again this year. The stone dust I installed 5 years ago lasted longer and was less expensive. Will never use this product again and would not recommend it.

I followed directions and had no staining issues and product cured nicely. Fast forward to this Spring...what a mess! The lines between the pavers turned black and green with mold and algae. I just finished power washing it out (makes a HUGE mess) and will go back to regular play sand. In my opinion this stuff just stays moist and the result is a very unattractive moldy mess. Play sand is cheaper, easier to reapply and I never had mold and algae problems with it. It is much easier to re-grout with play sand every year than it is to get this junk cleaned out! Never again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked perfectly so far! I was a little worried about trying this due to the awful reviews but decided to give it a try. It has been drying for about 2 hours and is already getting pretty hard and seems very stable. I had no issues with staining or leaving a haze on my travertine pavers as far as I can tell (perhaps it is more of an issue on concrete pavers?). I followed the directions with 1 modification; I used the mist setting on the hose rather than the shower setting. The shower setting was flooding the area too quickly and was allowing the sand to float around a little (particularly in an area where I had a wider joint). I put it on the mist setting and sprayed the water from about 6 inches away for a few seconds instead and its already hardening up nicely after only a few hours.

Part of the project was filled with a competitors product that is no longer available at HD and the rest (about 30') was filled with this product. 10 months later I've found that the competitors product still looks new and is a FAR superior product, while THIS product is washed out and crumbling...and it was all assembled at one time. No good.
