December 15, 2014
The stability of the bucket containing the post embedded in concrete will depend upon the height of the post, as well as the diameter of the base of the bucket. A 60 lb bag of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix yields 0.45 cubic feet of concrete. A 2 gallon bucket would require 0.27 cubic feet of concrete to fill it, if there were no post placed within it. With a 0.167 ft (2 in) x 0.167 ft (2 in) x 1.5 ft (18 in) post contained within it, it will require roughly 0.04 cubic feet less, requiring a net of 1/4 cubic feet of concrete, or more than half of a 60-lb bag. Yields will vary based upon waste, etc.

We do not recommend altering any of our pre-blended products, as it prevents them from performing according to design. In general, if you need a mortar (material without coarse aggregate), QUIKRETE Sand Topping Mix, #1103, may be suitable. Please contact the QUIKRETE Technical Center directly to discuss your specific application needs (i.e. for a non-shrink grout, core fill grout, etc.) at 1-800-282-5828.

Not sure why you would.
The same company makes a great grout mix.
It has better adhesive properties and is smoother to work with.
There are different sizes of sand in the concrete and the grout mix is better

Hello hank and thank you for your question.

Check out the Quikrete Concrete Calculator located here: http://www.quikrete.com/calculator/....

400 Square feet requires 445 bags of the 60# concrete to cover to a depth of 6 inches. Divide that by half for a 3 inch slab = 223 bags needed.

For the above ground portion of your wall between 280 and 300 bags,
For the foundation, it will depend on what part of the country you live in, but in general the foundations would be at least 1' wide and 1' deep #more if your frost line is below 12"# Add another 100-120 bags for each 12 inches deep the footer goes.

1 foot is too shallow of a hole. No matter what
I use 2 ft hole and 6 ft above grade for fence. There is no dynamic force on the post and should be plenty.
If it's a support post for a gate you might get a deeper hole/longer post, but unless the gate is wider than three feet there also not much strain. stay with 2 and 6.
For a gate that is wider, you might consider a 4x6 or sister two posts if you are concerned and stay with the two ft hole and 6 ft above grade.

My calculations are one 90# sack comes short to fill a two ft deep hole with standard post hole digger 6-7 inches width and a 4x4. Use 2 60# per ft.

The dirt/soil here is HARD. I would never dig a 12 inch wide hole. Why would you. Too much work for zero gain.
I use to use the 90# bags but the 60# are easier to lift and move.

After putting in probably 60 posts and many more to go, I suggest the 60# as 1 per foot.
I have not had a post go over in 32 years at the house. The post may rot, but the cement is still solid.

March 10, 2014
When placing fence posts, the depth of the post hole should be one-half of the above-ground post height, for example: For a 4' above ground post, use a post with an overall height of 6 feet and place 2 feet (24”) in the ground. For holes that are 24” deep, with a 12” diameter, and a 4” x 4” square post placed within, a single hole would require approximately three 60# bags of mixed QUIKRETE Concrete Mix. 8 posts will require approximately 24 bags. These are estimates and will vary based upon waste, uneven subgrade, etc. Note that the QUIKRETE Concrete Mix must be blended with water before being added to the hole.

Forest, VA, USA

If you're setting 4x4 posts, you're gonna want to dig your holes deeper than 1 foot. The Quikrete folks will tell you to dig a hole half as deep as the height of your post out of the ground. (e.g., for a 6 foot high post you would need a 9 foot long 4x4 with 3 feet of it being buried in the hole). While that will certainly be sturdy, I would go with 8 foot posts and bury them in 2 foot holes. Having said that, a 60lb. bag would do one hole and then some - maybe 3 bags for 4 holes - assuming the holes are about 9-10 inches in diameter. The Quikrete website has a good quantity calculator on it. Good luck.

If the product is being placed over unsealed / uncoated concrete, make sure the concrete is clean of any dust, oil, or any other contaminant that could prevent a good bond. If it is being placed over tile, the tile should be roughened (be sure to wear proper personal protective equipment), and metal lath should be installed over it, to ensure a mechanical bond. QUIKRETE Concrete Mix should not be used for applications less than 2 inches thick. QUIKRETE Sand Topping Mix #1103 blended with QUIKRETE Concrete Acrylic Fortifier replacing a portion of the water is an appropriate product for an overlay 0 – 1” thick.

Check with the provider of the satellite dish for recommendations. If it is going to be placed in concrete, the pole must be made of metal that is compatible with cement (an alkaline material), such as galvanized steel, or there is potential for corrosion. Be cautioned that aluminum, in particular, must be avoided as it reacts with either an acid or an alkali. Mixed concrete weighs approximately 140 pounds per cubic foot. A 60 lb. bag of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix yields approximately 0.45 cubic feet of concrete, while an 80 lb. bag of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix yields approximately 0.6 cubic feet of concrete. Weight and yields are approximate, and will vary based upon mixing water quantity used, waste, etc.

A 60 lb bag of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix is designed to be mixed with 4 – 7 pints of clean water, to achieve a 2-3 inch slump. Exceeding a 3 inch slump will not allow the product to perform as designed. You may consider utilizing QUIKRETE Core Fill Grout – Coarse #1585-07 or Fine #1585-08. Although these products are not specifically designed to be poured into gopher holes, they are designed to be flowable to allow them to be used to fill masonry block cores. They are designed to be mixed to an 8 – 11” slump. The design strength of these products varies somewhat by region, but it is never less than 2000 PSI when tested for its intended purpose. This suggestion presumes that the filling of the holes is not being performed for structural purposes. If it is, please check local building codes for any specific requirements and contact the QUIKRETE Technical Center at 1-800-282-5828 for further assistance.

Concrete sets like epoxy. The guidelines on the quikrete website says how cured it will be after 24 hours and 1 week. It should be OK to drive across after a day if it is pushing straight down. But if you put a pipe through it, the concrete could flex and break. It all depends on the thickness.

QUIKRETE Concrete Mix will continue to cure and gain strength through 28 days and beyond. When tested under standard laboratory conditions in accordance with that specification, it will achieve or exceed a compressive strength of 3,500 PSI in 28 days, with a typical 28 day value being 4,000 PSI. QUIKRETE 5000 Concrete Mix #1007 would be a better choice, as it achieves a typical strength of 5000 PSI in 28 days. Depending upon the strength of the PVC pipe, it could potentially be weaker with the PVC pipe than without it. If you opt to use the PVC pipe, the concrete can be no less than 2” thick in all directions from the pipe. Be sure to check with your local municipality to determine requirements before altering the street gutter at the end of your driveway.

No, QUIKRETE Concrete Mix #1101 must be mixed with water prior to placement. It is NOT an acceptable practice for this product to be placed dry, then water added on top of it afterwards. Only QUIKRETE Fast Setting Concrete Mix #100450, when used for setting posts, may be placed dry then water added on top per instructions. Any application other than setting posts requires that the Fast Setting Concrete Mix also be mixed with water prior to placement.

No. The concrete & water mixture should be thoroughly mixed before pouring into the post hole. If doing as you suggest there is a great possibility that the outer "crust" of the concrete will set hard but under an inch of the hardened concrete the balance could/would be powder.

Whether or not the product could be used would depend on the crack thickness. In order to use this product it would need to be 2” or more in thickness and in depth, because this product contains rock. For cracks less than 2” you could consider using the QUIKRETE® FastSet™ Repair Mortar or the QUIKRETE® Sand/Topping Mix (No. 1103). For very thin cracks we have products that come in caulk tubes or squeeze tubes that may suit your application better.

I would not recommend it if your crack's aren't major.
If I would be u I would use 40 lb. Concrete Patch for your cracks.

I hope that helps

Yes, QUIKRETE Concrete Mix is designed for general structural uses, so it is suitable for an outdoor car parking pad provided it is an appropriate thickness. A standard slab is 4” thick. Applying over a sub-grade that is not firm, mixing with too much or too little water, overworking the concrete while finishing, not utilizing control joints for a large slab, or not reinforcing properly, are some of the factors which will contribute to decreased durability. Always be sure to review local building codes to ensure your project complies.
