can this product be used to make a shower pan?

Answer

QUIKRETE® Sand/Topping Mix (No.1103), in conjunction with QUIKRETE® Concrete Acrylic Fortifier (No.8610) replacing half of the required water content, is the combination of products recommended for a shower pan or a mortar bed for shower base or bathtub installation. ANSI 108.1 provides application and material requirements for shower pans and bathtubs. It is critical that the subfloor / structure underneath be rigid. Bathtubs require secure and adequate support because of the combined weight of the tub, person, and water. Please consult and follow local building /plumbing code requirements.

Your application technique is what we recommend for filling uneven flooring at that thickness. We recommend using QUIKRETE® Concrete Acrylic Fortifier as a partial replacement for the mixing water, particularly in the areas thinner than ½”.

For slab-work at less than 2” thick, we recommend QUIKRETE® Sand/Topping Mix. Once the slabs are 2” or thicker, we recommend one of our quality concrete products instead.

Is Sand/Topping Mix good for building a ramp that will be 1" thin to 3" thick?

Asked by EasyDIY March 24, 2021
2
Answers

You'll be better off using regular concrete since it should be stronger than the sand/topping mix. Regular concrete is much more appropriate for a 3" thickness. If 1" is as thin as you go, there should be no problem smoothing it out over the aggregate (rocks). If you get down to 1/2", the aggregate will start showing, but I wouldn't go that thin anyway.

Answers

Each 60-pound bag of QUIRKETE® Sand/Topping Mix yields approximately 0.5 cubic feet. For an area of 48 square feet, you will need 8 60-pound bags per inch of thickness. Yields will vary with waste, uneven subgrade, etc.

If im patching a 3'x4' low area 2" high do i need to buy a bonding agent to mix in?

Answers

For applications of 1-2” thick, we recommend using a topically applied bonding agent like QUIKRETE® Concrete Bonding Adhesive. This product can be painted onto the existing concrete prior to pouring the new topping.

Can this be used to make stamped stepping stones? How well does it hold up to freeze/thaw cycles?

concrete mix not sand topping mix
Buyer beware! I bought 4 bags last week and just opened them to discover concrete mix (i.e. rocks and cement) instead of simply sand and cement. I purchased the same sand topping mix three weeks prior and it was just sand and cement. This is frustrating as the sand topping mix is significantly more expensive than concrete mix and I need sand topping (not concrete) for my project. This is a QUIKRETE mistake, not a Home Depot mistake.

stones in mix
We bought this product thinking that the label was correct in saying it was sand and cement. We used it for the bedding of the shower floor, and wanted it to be pretty precise. But there was actually a significant amount of larger stones, that was very frustrating when we wanted to add a fraction of an inch, and the trowel really had a problem with them. We ended up having to screen the dry mix first, to get out those stones (see picture). Then to keep the proportions right, we added some clean playground sand in equal amounts to the stone volume that we screened out. Mixture worked well then. Gave it a 2 because if the stones

I did a bathroom shower subfloor with the quikrete sand/topping mix and it was easier to work with as compared to thin set mortar that was used on the first layer. The sand/topping mix set up time was slower than the thin set which helped a novice like me to get it level on the perimeter with a 1/4" per foot grade to the drain. It blended well when leveling and filling in voids etc. I mixed the first batch dryer (which worked well) than the second batch. The second batch might have been mixed too wet because the top surface was pretty wet and shiny. I'll see if that didn't affect the surface integrity when it dries.

Finally Finished it
I have been slowly purchasing this concrete for the last several months working on this sidewalk. After about 40 bags and a stronger back I was able to finish the walkway to my shop from the house. No more tracking mud in the house when I am grilling or letting the dog out. I probably have another 200 feet to go to finish out the yard, but I am in no rush. This stuff mixes easily and is forgiving in a wide temperature range. Within an hour or two, depending on the weather, it is dry enough to stand up to afternoon showers in Georgia.

Great for a shower base
I did a concrete shower base on a rubber bladder for the shower floor in my basement bathroom. A fraction of the cost of so called specialty mixes from over priced tile stores. I added my own Fibermesh and poured it at about a 2-3" slump. No cracks or leaks 5 years layer. The sand mix grades down to the drain better than conventional mixes with large aggregates . This sand mix just has the cement and fine sand in it.Perfect . I'm doing another one in the upstairs master bath . Concrete shower bases are nice because you can custom make them any size or design you want..SO EASY !
