it states that you don't have to mix this before hand...…..but can I do it anyways or would it screw up the texture or whatnot
Asked by: chaplin
You can mix this before hand like my neighbor does and he is happy with the outcome/set. I don't like a lot of extra mess so mix it in the ground (actually just add water to the dry mix that I poured into the application) and have had great results as well. Try it both ways and leave a review.

when using several bags, do I add bag then water until it’s mixed and then add the next bag then water and so forth?

Asked by: Marie
It depends on what type of project you're working on. For example, if you're digging post holes, you can pour the dry concrete around the post, then add water, or you can mix the concrete yourself and add it around the post. Your best bet would be to visit the Quikrete website for the best answer. www.quikrete.com

I have a project where I actually want water to slowly seep through. Is this product water permeable after it sets? If not, is there a way to make behave this way?
Asked by: Nathan
After this Quikrete sets, it is just like concrete. It will absorb moisture but would not permeate water in a seeping fashion. I would guess you would need a compacted sand mixture to create a seeping effect.

Can you use Quikrete to build a patio slab
Asked by: tn2
That's exactly what we did. We built a patio slab and it looks great. It's been in place for 2 years now and no cracks or any other problems at all.

50 lb. Fast-Setting Concrete Mix is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 444.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and easy I purchased a few bags of Quikcrete fast settling concrete from Home Depot, to install a couple 4x4 posts in my yard over the weekend. I had never used this product before so when I saw it in the store, I jumped at the chance to avoid mixing cement in a wheelbarrow with a shovel. The product worked exactly as described. After putting gravel in the hole and leveling the post, I dumped 3 bags in per hole, as the guide on the package recommended. I added roughly 3 gallons of water (1 gallon per bag) and walked away. After a couple hours the top of the cement had hardened. After 4 hours, the post was solid and I finished my project the same day. This project was supposed to take a couple weekends to complete but thanks to Quikrete, I finished in a day.

I bought 68 bags to use as a flag pole base. i did not fully trust the claims of " Just pour water on top and let it sink in" so i tested it. I cut the top off a clear 5 gallon water bottle and poured a half a bag in, poured the required water on top and let it alone. the water could be seen creeping down and through the concrete mix. In about 15 minutes it was mostly saturated. I added the second half of the bag on top and poured the required water on top to test the joint between the two. Same result, full saturation in about 15 minutes. After a few days of sitting i unwrapped the plastic bottle from around the concrete, picked up the block and dropped it, hit it with a hammer, could not break the block at the joint. Very impressive.

I was skeptical that water and concrete mix could mix thoroughly. Thinking about it, it seemed to violate everything I thought I understood about how these things work, but I decided to give it a try. Lots of good reviews. Well, my instincts were right. I did one post, and it stayed loose. I jacked the post out of the ground after a couple of days and the mix was dry on the bottom of the hole. And yes, I added plenty of water. I dropped the post on the ground, and the concrete shattered. It was not strong at all, rather crumbly. I premixed the rest of the job, and it went fine. When mixing the concrete, it was easy to see why this method cannot properly mix concrete. The cement in the mix is a fine powder, like flour. It resists mixing with water, and needs physical agitation just like cake batter needs mixing. So the posts are fine, but the next time I would buy just regular concrete mix. It is cheaper, and if you can afford to wait overnight, you will be ahead of the game. If you need to set up quicker, this is the product, but mix it first. BTW, the best tools are a wheelbarrow and a hoe. It is quiet effortless and you will get a mix you can count on. Also, if you want real straight posts, brace them before you pour. Don't take a shortcut here. That is more bad advice you get from the quick and easy school.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

It was easy to mix and set up so fast. I was able to make two dozen 8 in stones out of two bags. Be prepared to moved fast if you want to embellish with any decorations because as I said, it does set up fast!

The concrete hardened so fast that we were able to construct 90’ of fence posts within a very short time. DEFINITELY the right choice. No regrets and will definitely use this product again.

It was an inexpensive way to make my loose gravel semi-permenent and lock in my designs I made with different types of rock. No more trying to sweep, rack gravel or fix my designs! Great product!

Dig hole, drop in post, pour in dry concrete, add water, (very little mixing. Just enough mixing to ensure water gets in bottom), and level. 1 bag per post. E-Z P-Z. My first mailbox job!!!
