Q:Does this have large gravel rocks, or smaller size pea gravel? Want to use it for a countertop I used reinforcement mesh. So it need to fit between the mesh
by|Sep 15, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Omar. Yes. The 5000 Plus does contain large aggregate. Typically, when using wire mesh the fines fill between the mesh and not the large pieces of aggregate. Should you want to discuss pouring the countertop in more detail. You can contact us directly at 1-866-SAKRETE (866-725-7383).

    Q:how many bags do i need for 12ftx22ftx6in

    Answer This Question

    A:  To pour an area 12' x 22' x 6" will take approximately 220/80lb. bags. This is several yards of concrete. It will be extremely difficult to mix, pour and finish this amount of bagged concrete mix. We highly advise to using a ready mix truck for this pour.

              Update on my review
              I left a review yesterday and tried to edit it to add pictures I took this morning after letting the product cure overnight. The differences are absurd with the same product. Used the same water amount to mix the Sakrete 500, mixed the same day and applied the same day under the same temperature but results could not more distinct. Very inconsistent and no wonder why now Home Depot is selling it for $3.98 after I paid $6.35 nine days ago.

                I bought this higher strength mix because it has a much faster early strength development rating. Used over sixty 80 lb. bags to pour three column footing for repair of a historic barn. Since I was holding up the barn post with a forklift during the repair of each footing, I wanted a quicker set time. With this mix, I was able to cut the typical set time from 7 days to 3 days to achieve over 50% strength. The mix was a low slump at the water ratio recommended and required a vibrator to flow the mix into the footing bell form, but it flowed smoothly.

                So far the 5000 plus seems really nice we made two walk paths and it came out looking as good as a professional concrete company that we had pour some months before. It seemed very easy to work with it didnt seem to go as far as the specs said but it was not that far off just a bag or two difference so no big deal.
