" i used to mix concrete in a bucket then support post for hours until the concrete dried , but with this mix it is so much easier you just fill the hole with about a third water then pour on the mix then hold the post in position and in no time the mix sets, highly recommend

Pros: easy to use, very little mess
Cons: sets very quick
" So easy to use...dug the hole, put in the post, half filled with water then added the postcrete......simple. However, make sure your don't need to move from the spot once you have poured it, as it starts to set solid within about 5 minutes. Have your spirit level at the ready as you have very little time to mess about. Would definitely recommend it..... "

Pros: quick & easy, cheap, effective
" Used this to secure some metal post spikes for a climbing wall for the kids. Had previously used a more expensive tub of cementone - found this much cheaper, easier to use and just as good. Just dig your hole, fill with 2/3ish of water and add the postcrete until you can't see the water (I added mine by trowel rather than pouring straight from the bag. (I also added some rocks and stones to the hole for added strength.) There's no need to mix and it's solid within 20mins or so. Two words of caution - it does set quick so you do need to get on with the job, and if you overfill with the water you will get rather more concrete than your hole can hold! A great product. "

Pros: best product for the job
" Used Postcrete 20kg premix bags to fix anti parking posts in front of my garage and parking areas.
This was at simple task, break through Tarmac, dig a large hole deeper than the post. Pour in a full bucket of water, add some Postcrete, drop in the post to desired height, pour in more Postcrete, use spirit level to ensure upright, fill remainder of hole with Postcrete. Finish by covering in water and final checks for upright. Total time taken to fit each post in the pre dug holes 10 minutes. Simple as can be, sets hard in 10 to 15 mins, allow 24 hours to fully cure. Used 3 bags per hole plus the steel posts breaks the scale at 70kgs, take more than your Mr average to shift those little beauties.
Thank you Wickes.

Pros: good value
Cons: the instructions are hold to adhere to
" The instructions say to fill the hole with water and tip the contents of the bag in. By the time you poor the water into the hole and pick up the bag the water has gone! After two attempts I tipped the bags contents into the hole and added the water - it seems to have worked - time will tell. "

" 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.
