    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for easy fence posts This is the easiest product to use for DIY fence and gate posts because you can mix the product right in the hole. If you have a wheelbarrow and are doing more than a couple posts, then other sakrete could be used, but you won't find an easier product to use, mix and add water straight into the fence post hole.

    The instructions say that the mix & substrate should be between 5 & 30 degrees for 48 hours after. However its April in Canada and while the daytime temps are above 5 the nighttime lows for the next 2 weeks are between 0-4, can this product still be used?

    Asked by: acoady
    It could still be used but you’ll reduce the strength of the concrete substantially. Water begins to expand at 4 degrees Celcius and continues to expand right up to the point it fully freezes. Any water still left in the compound will begin to freeze and expand. This will produce stress points, weak spots, and hairline fractures, all which will reduce the durability of the product over time. If the concrete has hairline fractures in it, those will retain water in the next few years and freeze-thaw cycles will cause them to break open even more.  Yes you can still use it, but you do risk not getting as much life out of the product. Try choosing a day where the overnight temperatures don’t go below 0, and pour it as early in the day as possible so that you have a longer dry time before the temperature drops again.

    I'm building a fence. Should I use tubes or can rapid post be used without tubes?

    Asked by: rogie66
    SAKRETE RAPID POST may be used with or without a SAKRETE Builders' Tube. Local building codes may specify directly. SAKRETE RAPID POST is a pre-blended, rapid setting concrete material. It is designed specifically for fence posts and poles. Pour from bag to hole, add water and agitate with a rod or stick. SAKRETE RAPID POST sets in minutes so no bracing is required and the post can be used after 3 hours. FEATURES & BENEFITS • Mix in the hole • Rapid-setting • No bracing required USES For rapid setting fence posts, mailbox posts, basket ball poles, swing sets, and lamp posts. SAKRETE RAPID POST is not recommended to construct deck posts, walks, floors, slabs or footings. PROCEDURES Mix and substrate temperatures should be maintained between 5 ºC and 30 ºC (40 ºF and 86 ºF) for at least 24 hours prior to and 48 hours after. For temperatures below 5 °C (40 °F) refer to SAKRETE Fast Set. SETTING POSTS - Fence posts, mailbox posts, basket ball poles, swing sets and lamp posts. Hole Preparation: Dig hole with auger or shovel to required depth (hole should extend below the frost line). Allow 2 inches (5 cm) clearance on each side of post. A typical 4 inch (10 cm) x 4 inch (10 cm) post will require an 8 inch (20 cm) diameter. Mixing and Placing: Position the post in hole. Fill with SAKRETE RAPID POST and water simultaneously 2.8 L (3 qts) per 30 KG (66 lb) bag and agitate with rod or stick. Align post using a level and check the vertical position. There is no need to brace. SAKRETE RAPID POST will stiffen almost immediately. Do not rework once the mix has set. In cold weather, use warm water to accelerate the set. In hot weather, use cold water to slow the set. CURING Allow newly placed material to set until surface is hard to the touch. Then cover with plastic to prevent evaporation of mixing water. Post can be used after 3 hours. TECHNICAL DATA Initial Set: Approximately 5-9 minutes Compressive Strength: 7 Day 7 MPa (1015 psi) 28 Day 15 MPa (2175 psi) Thank you for your inquiry.

    Can I Place three foot anchor bolts for large sign install

    I am installing a large sign that requires a 3 foot anchor bolt to be put in the centre of the concrete. I am using 16" diameter Sonotubes and going 4 feet down. I have used rapid post tons of times (fencing) but never for an application like this. My concern is that by the time I pour my TWO holes I'm afraid that I will not be able to get my template with the anchor bolts in it provided by the customer into the concrete. Also how many bags and water will I need per hole 16" Dia x 5 feet deep (the extra foot is above ground as per customer
    Asked by: Anonymous
    For this project use SAKRETE Concrete mix. To set anchors you will need time to position and set properly. Also a bend in the anchor will help secure it- if it's straight bend it. Let the concrete set for 28 days to obtain full strength before attaching a sign. I hope this helps.
