Questions & Answers

can this product be used on a shower floor?

Asked by: brian
I know this is an old post, but just incase anyone else is wondering... You have to make a 'pre slope' - the use a PVC pan liner- the make actual slope, then lay thinset - then tile Deck mud is porous on purpose, so If/when water seeps though your grout, it hits the pan liner (which is sloped by the 'pre-slope') and water is drawn to the weep holes in your drain. The actual slope is for your tile, so water is drawn to the drain when you are taking a shower. both pan slopes should be made out of 'deck mud' which is 5 parts sand 1 part portland cement. I know quickrete sand/ topping mix is 3:1, if sakrete is the same ratio, then you can add a 30 lb bag of sand 60lb bad of sakrete sand/ topping mix to achieve a 5:1 ratio. Look up a product called 'quick pitch', That's what I used on my first bathtub to tiled shower remodel. There are plenty of youtube videos that demonstrate how to use this system.

How many bags will I need to cover 320 square feet?

Asked by: Jm
We would have to have to depth to be able to give you an accurate quantity. However, it will take approximately 119 of the 60 lb bags to fill that area at 2" in thickness.

60 lb. Sand Mix is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 15.

I was looking for a different brand of sand/topping mix, but the local HD had this in stock so I gave it a try. I was doing a re-mortar of an irregular flagstone walkway. I'm a DIY'er and this was my first masonry project, but it turned out pretty well. My primary focus was safety; the walkway hadn't been maintained for over 30 years and most of the original mortar was gone, leaving large gaps between the flagstones where trick-or-treaters or other guests could trip and seriously injure themselves. I pressure-washed 1/16" thick moss and lichen off the stones and removed the old concrete. The base (stone dust) was still in good shape, so I leveled the stones with all-purpose sand then got to work with the mortar using a masonry trowel and a tuck-pointer trowel for the smaller cracks. Some notes: as mentioned by other commenters there were some small pebbles in the mix, but nothing that interfered with the project. One bag had a large charcoal briquette in it, so that was interesting. Follow the instructions; putting too much water in the mix will make it sloppy and splatter all over the paving stones. The biggest concern is the _irregular coloring from bag to bag_; as seen in the close-up, the coloring of the mortar changed from a bright tan, to a dark slate from another bag, back to a bright tan in another bag. Not a big deal for me, but I strongly recommend getting all the bags from the same pallet, which will hopefully keep it a uniform color. If bags are picked from different pallets it might be from a different location with a different color of mortar.

Over the years, I've used Sand Mix to fill-in and replace missing parts of sidewalks on small projects. Recently I used it to level a 12' x 12' patio that went from 1/2" to more than 2" It mixes well and allows plenty of time to work with it before it sets. I raised the patio more than originally planned and needed additional material and this product worked well enough to tie-in with the first set without cracks. Note: Lanco Bonding Agent was used where the new work capped the original slab.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why does it have gravel? I fail to understand why this sand mix has so much gravel. I have used other sand mixes and I don't run into this problem. I often like to mix a sand mix with certain fortifiers that allow a sand mix to be troweled to a feather edge. With this one it's next to impossible unless I pick out the gravel by hand which is very time-consuming. I have remember running into this problem before about two years ago, but I had completely forgotten and bought it again. Now I have quite a few bags which I might return and buy something else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mortar shower pan...follow instructions! I was happy with the product for use in laying a shower pan for tile. Water proof membrane stuck to it well. End result was solid. Just a warning: I have seen more than one DIY website that suggests adding sand to sand topping mix for the right ratio of sand to cement (at least 4 to 1). Since sand topping mixes are typically 3 to 1, you are supposed to add sand to make it a good consistency for a shower pan. My experience is that this does not work with this product. I added sand and the pan turned out crumbly. Follow the instructions for a shower pan on the back (no additional sand required). The consistency should be just moist and crumby, but packs into "snowballs" that hold together. Do this and your pan will turn out right the first time :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product is easy to work with. We used this product to both build a flagstone sidewalk and to patch our driveway. Didn't take but a couple hours with two people to set the sidewalk, but you have to work quickly. The driveway is holding up nicely and we are considering purchasing more cement to complete a much larger section

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! Purchased to provide the floor foundation for a tiled-shower install. Sets-up perfectly, no issues!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not all sand... even though it's called "Sand Mix", there is still lots of pea size gravel in it. So trying to spread it out to a feather edge is very hard. The bag does say the you should apply it at a min of 1/2 inch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worked well for fireplace hearth overlay This may help someone trying to decide which product is best for their particular use. I had struggled trying to decide on an appropriate product for resurfacing a fireplace hearth, where I had removed the 12'x12' tiles which someone had put down in the past. I wanted to go from about a half inch at the edge of the firebox, to an inch and a quarter depth at the outer lip, which I had formed with some angle aluminum stock I had. I toyed with the idea of using Flo-coat, but had never used the product, and was uneasy about the 20 min. set time. Also, it would take about 4 pails to do the job, about $90. I settled on the Sand-mix, since I was familiar working with this type of portland cement based product. I used charcoal color pigment as per instructions, and in hindsight, probably should have used some strength additive, but didn't. I had plenty of time to steel trowel it, and have misted it daily with water and kept it covered with plastic, which I intend to do for at least a week or more. After 48 hrs. I gently removed my edge form, and rubbed the edge out with an abrasive stone. The color is great, and I'm very pleased, having spent less than $30 . Hope this helps someone trying to figure things. By the way, there were NO stones in the mix, only sand.
