Pros: time saver, easy to use, quick drying
" This product is perfect for putting up fence posts.
Saves you time as its dry enough to put up the pannel or slates within about half an hour.
Ive use this product for all my fencing jobs and have been pleased with the finished product everytime.
The price differs from place to place but worth it.
Time saver, Easy to use, Quick drying... PERFECT! "

" Post holes dug 1 spit square x18" deep. One gallon of water in, (high summer) then one bag of postcrete per post. Mix it up a bit with the spade, toss the arisings back in on top and tread down. Set of solid enough to nail the arrises on in a hour.
Job done! "

" This is by far the best post mix I have used. Have used others in past, and more expensive versions, but I wont being using anything else in future.
Sets very quickly so you don't have to prop your posts whilst waiting, but ensure you have anything to hand , or ideally a spare pair of hands, to hold post in position with spirit level etc whilst you are pouring water in and then the mix, prod with another piece of wood or something to ensure the product mixes well with water.
within 5 minutes this was set enough so not to worry that your post was going to lean or move in anyway.

Pros: easy to use, sets in maximum 10 minutes
Cons: powder flies around need ppe
" We used this to put up two wooden garden arches, so eight holes altogether. I thought we might need a bag per hole so over-ordered, but for a hole nine inches square by ten inches deep with a 2.5" post we were only needing a little over half a bag each time. It's a bit tricky to judge how much to put in to achieve a concrete surface slightly below the level of the dirt but we were pretty close on six out of the eight. The Postcrete set hard by five minutes and unless you were really having to put stress on the post to hold it level, you could let go then. A great product for occasional DIYers, no mixing required. Do wear dust mask and goggles as the powder flies everywhere when you pour it into the hole. "

" 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.
