How To Install Fence Posts With Concrete - No Mixing - Sakrete




What do you think about this video?

thetruth: bracing is for initializing position

mrbasser71: Like I said. It's "treated" lumber. It will last for many, many years. It is also a simple wooden fence they are building, not a house. The fence itself will be subject to far worse conditions than the post below the ground. Again, it is a FENCEPOST. Let's not put too much thought into this.

Stihl Magnum: put a shovel full in the bottom then set the post on top

malachy1847: Don't want to get into a wordfest over this,but here in mild temperate South west Ireland the past three winter / spring seasons have been seriously manic... leading to fence posts sunk many years ago loosing out to mother natures travails... all i was saying was as a belt and braces .. [1] sink the posts to the correct depth and [2] finish the mortar slighty above the ground level.it's just good practice as pounding of water will in time dilute even the best pressure treated Tanalised lumbar

Sakrete: Fast Setting is highly effective in this situation. Why pre-mix for post setting if you don't have too. If using the Sakrete High Strength Concrete Mix or using the Fast Setting Concrete Mix for footers or slabs then yes, we would suggest pre-mixing. Thanks for your viewing.

spellbound111: These types of videos are made by cowboy builders who give bad information, they are only trying to sell us something. The wooden posts should be painted with tar to a height of 10 cm above ground level before setting into the ground. Fast Setting Concrete Mix is very ineffective by the method shown in this video, it is very effective if mixed with water in a large tub the old fashioned way and the poured into the post hole. But these clowns don't want you to know this !!

malachy1847: Level of the mix too low... as water will lodge and post rot out could also pond and freeze thaw freeze thaw during the wintertime causing the post to pop up, maybe also consideration needs to be given to those sinking same lower in cold climates just to assure same is put lower than the frost line....

Sakrete: You can order concrete from a ready mix truck but the bagged mixes are perfect for around the home jobs and for the DIY'r. Thanks for viewing.

Adam Akers: I agree, I used sakrete for some fence posts last summer and that is exactly how we did it.. Coated the bottom in tar and mixed the sakrete in a wheelbarrow with water and a concrete hoe. It worked really well.

myfeetsmells666: The best way is to get concrete from ready mix truck..don't be cheap or else the wind might blow your post over..

manny6584: Why in the world would you or anyone waste time and money ordering concrete from a truck just to install a post?????? lol

Al Senzick: Great job

womackke: sakrete says shhhh hahaha... use pea gravel if your worried

mrbasser71: That is what is called "treated lumber" The post has been pre-soaked with a solution that prevents ground contact from rotting the wood. The way they are setting the concrete is fine. If you were to dig that post out later you would find that the concrete soaked in the water and fully cured with little difficulty.

kevin: "The mixture is mixed" I thought we didn't have to mix it.

creepyrat1: Not buying it. I'll stick with mixing.
