" Very happy with postcrete, some holes drain more than others so no simple standard for fill one third with water but seems to work OK. Do mix it up as best I can with a short length of re bar "

" Ordered 10 bags that we're all out of date ,some by a couple of months ,some over 6 months .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

" product simple to use when putting in fence posts alone. Can set up post and it stays in place with little or no support once postcrete is poured in hole. simply add water and post is firm within 10-15 mins
need to wait an hour before further work.

" made putting up a number of 2.4 meter concrete posts very simple and quick. add water to the hole with the post in place, add the postcrete to water level, my holes 900 mm deep half filled with water and added 3 bags. used the spade to stir the mix. levelled the post wedging the fence in the post slot, held for 5 mins and set. so very easy. no mess. definitely would recommend "
