Top Customer Reviews
The only downside of this 10-lb format is that the plastic bags tear easily during handling. And the bags are intentionally designed with tiny pinhole perforations - be careful not to store these bags on damp ground.
This concrete sets at regular speed, so it gives more than enough working time. But in cooler temperatures it can take annoyingly long to set. In warm or hot temperatures, this in an ideal general-purpose concrete. Depending on temperature, it will seem hard after 1 or 2 days but will still be weak and crumbly. After 1 week it will be strong but will take a month to reach its final strength.
A few generic thoughts about working with regular concrete such as this:
It's very important to add the right amount of water - you don't want soupy (too much water) or so crumbly that it can't hold together (too little water). You usually want a thick paste, or as the instructions say, 'a firm, workable mix'. Too much water makes a mix that is weak, porous, and prone to shrinking and cracking. Too little water will be difficult to work and will require compacting. The amount of water recommended in the instructions results in a very dry mix - which in theory can be the strongest - but I find it way too dry and difficult to work, requiring a lot of compaction. I always add a little more water. But only add as much water as needed to get the workability you need. Add water a little at a time while continually mixing to distribute the moisture all the way through.
When you're finished placing your concrete, it's essential that it doesn't dry out while hardening. If it does, it won't reach its full potential strength. Keeping it moist during the hardening period is called curing the concrete. Keep it covered in a plastic sheet and mist it with water whenever it begins to dry out...keep it moist for at least a week if possible. This tedious 'babysitting' will give you the best chance of reaching the full 4000psi final strength.
