" This stuff is really quick and simple to use. Fill the hole with water, pour in the Postcrete and leave it to set. Couldn't be simpler. The only other things you'll need is a bucket and a spirit level.
Managed to put in 8 fence posts in a couple of hours. It's great for DIY'ers as there's no need to hire concrete mixers, etc, and it provides a strong, effective solution.

" I used this for some odd DIY jobs, it goes off very quickly, which is how it's designed and it does the job well.
I wouldn't use it for anything other than a 'fire and forget' job i.e. where speed is essential, it's recommended for fence posts.
For any standard brickwork, patio paving etc. I'd recommend just buying standard sand and cement. "

" Used to secure 2.4m, 150mm square gate posts.
Like anything you do, prior preparation is the key to a good job.
Using this product is no different and essential with only 10 minutes setting time.
I now have an over engineered fence that will out live me.
Great product, great price, does exactly as it says it will. "

Pros: easy to use, simple instructions, sets really fast
" Blue Circle Postcrete was perfect for the job we were doing, installing a new wooden garden arch. Really simple, dig the holes, line up the arch and fix with planks set to hold in position. Check with spirit level, if all okay, take the postcrete and pour into the excavated hole, then just add water, simples! It worked perfectly and the arch is completely solid and stable. Didn't move a centimetre in the recent gale either. Job Done!! :>))) "

Pros: works really fast, easy to use
Cons: bags can break easily, can takes longer to set in cold weather, watch use by date
" This is the best fast setting concrete mix available that I have found. I am a professional fencer and have tried loads of others. postcrete is the best. use warm water in cold conditions. handle with care, the bags break easily if thrown around. "

Pros: simple to use
Cons: none !
" If you are putting in fence posts, wooden or concrete you have to use this to secure them.
Could not be simpler - once you have your post hole dug, and post in place, half fill hole with water and empty the bag of cement into the hole - that's pretty much it - just make sure your post is upright (use a level) and within 10 minutes it will be secure.
if you need a little more water, add it on top, or a little more cement. Use a piece of fence post to tap down the mix (watch out for splashes) - and that's it !
A must for putting up a fence. "

Pros: better than mixing concrete itself.
Cons: a bit expensive.
" Using this stuff is far better than the old way of mixing concrete. Just add to water and that's it. But do ensure that you work swiftly, as it sets in minutes. So quickly, in fact, that supporting battens for the posts were not required. "

Pros: easy to use clear instructions, quick set time and save alot of time
Cons: absolutely none at all!
" Postcrete is an excellent product with clear instructiions, very easy to use and does exactly what it says on the tin!
Made a mistake of using another product, Kelkay fix-a-post quick set concrete from a local DIY and what a nightmare. I was told by the sales assistance it's very similar to Postcrete, setting time is 15 minutes.
Followed the instuctions and it never set at all. Waited 2 days and I was able to pull the whole fence post out! The concrete mixture for some reason was like soil and I had to dig it all out!
The reason I didn't go to Wickes for a bag of Postcrete, the nearest Wickes is over 10 miles away
I ended up going to Wickes for a bag of excellent Postcrete and the job is now done.
Don't bother with any other brand as Postcrete is the best. "
