" This product comes in a waterproof bag so it can be stored outside. The instructions are very clear, dig the hole, half fill with water and stand the post in it, add the Postcrete and the product sets almost immediately.
Brilliant, pity that Wickes had driven a nail into the bag.

Pros: easy to use, good packaging
Cons: will crack if instructions if not followed
" There are cheaper options, like mixing your own. But trust me, it''s worth the 2 quid a bag more with this. Very easy to use as long as you follow the instructions. I've used 50+ bags of these stuff and would definitely go back for more.
It's also packaged very well. I left some unused bags out in the garden over two winters and it did not harden! However beware when you buy - some broken bags in-store.
If only Wickes would sell one-off bags at the cheaper price as for 5+ bags. "

Pros: quick to set very easy to use
" This is a great product, sets quickly and does exactly what you need it to do.
There were a few of the 25 bags I ordered where rain/water had got in a little and resulted in the odd solid lump (tennis ball size typically), but these were few and far between.

" Ordered 10 bags that we're all out of date ,some by a couple of months ,some over 6 months .
Would put my unscrupulous local corner shop to shame .
Items too heavy to return . I've still not used them yet but hopefully should be usable . "

Pros: saves your back
Cons: goes off a little too quick
" I wanted to fix new posts for a fence I was putting up.
Being old school ,I have always used the old method of sand and cement mix 3/1 or 4/1
This was on offer at Wickes and was bought by mistake on my part .
I followed instructions on pack and wow it worked like a treat.
My posts were solid in around 20 mins
Saves back breaking mixing
