Question

Pouring a sidewalk - 173" long, 30" wide, 3.5" deep. I want to section it off and pour in slabs.

Disregard my previous question on this. My measurements were incorrect. If I pour say 50" slabs, how many bag would be needed per slab? The last slab would be 23" in length. How many bags per slab would be needed? Pic shows the framing but no dividers placed yet.

Question

How many bags would I need for a 2" thick sidewalk that is 30" in width and will be poured in three 57" slabs?

I'm looking to replace a sidewalk in a co-op so I'm not charged for it after I move out in a few weeks. It doesn't have to be perfect and will not get a lot of usage by the future tenants as it's a back sidewalk. I'm only looking to have something there that resembles a sidewalk.

An 80 lb bag of QUIKRETE® Concrete Mix yields 0.6 cubic feet of concrete. For each section of the sidewalk that is 2.5 ft (30 inch) wide x 4.75 ft (57 inch) long and 0.167 ft (2 inch) thick, 2 cubic feet of concrete, or 3.3 80 lb bags would be required. Three sections would require 6 cubic feet of concrete, or 10 80 lb bags. However, sidewalks should be at least 4 inches in thickness, which would require double that quantity. Be sure to check local building codes to ensure compliance. Yields will vary based upon waste, uneven subgrade, etc.

August 27, 2015
QUIKRETE® Concrete Acrylic Fortifier is intended to be used with thin Portland cement coatings. QUIKRETE® Concrete Mix is designed to be used at thicknesses no less than 2 inches thick, so the Concrete Mix will not gain the benefits from being used in combination with the QUIKRETE® Concrete Acrylic Fortifier as fully, for example, as if it were QUIKWALL® Surface Bonding Cement or QUIKRETE® Heavy Duty Masonry Coating. If you are using the QUIKRETE® Concrete Mix to recoat an existing concrete area with a thickness of two inches or more, you may consider painting on a coating of QUIKRETE® Concrete Bonding Adhesive #9902 before applying the Concrete Mix for an increased bond. To prevent the Concrete Mix from having to be moist cured, while at the same time improving its strength and durability, you may apply QUIKRETE® Acrylic Concrete Cure & Seal #8730-02, -03 over the concrete, after finishing it once it has hardened and the surface sheen has disappeared. If you have any questions, please call QUIKRETE® directly at 1-800-282-5828.

Dave, an 80 lb bag of QUIKRETE® Concrete Mix yields 0.6 cubic feet of concrete. An application that is 4 feet x 32 feet x 0.67 feet (8 inch) will require 85-1/3 cubic feet of concrete, or 143 80 lb bags of concrete. Yields will vary based upon waste, uneven subgrade, etc. It is crucial that you have sufficient equipment and man power to allow you to pour the entire application, or sections that are separated by expansion joints, before any of the material in that section has set. If some of the material sets before subsequent bags are poured, a cold joint will form. A cold joint is caused by the inability of the product to intermix between bags, and prevents the slab from being a single, solid mass. A cold joint may cause problems ranging from a simple aesthetic issue, to as serious as potentially allowing for water intrusion into the cold joint, which may eventually lead to concrete degradation.

I am installing a 6 ft diameter merry-go-round for my granddaughter to play on and don't know how large a concrete base the spindle needs to support it safely. I was thinking about a 3 ft x 3 ft x 3 ft but think that might be over large. The spindle/axle will be permanently set in the concrete.

The required dimensions will be greatly affected by the weight, dimensions, and overall design of the merry-go-round, in addition to potentially, the local soil type and frost line. Please check with the merry-go-round manufacturer for specific installation instructions, including the depth and diameter of the concrete base. Additionally, check local building codes to ensure compliance with those codes.

Starting with 6 pints, and adding additional water only as needed to achieve a workable material within the specified slump range, is suggested.
