    Cons:  gaps & cracks have appeard

    "Project. I viewed the Wickes How to for some additional help on a certain website. Installed new posts x6 (3?x3?x1.8m) and x6 new fence panels (6ftx4ft) and gravel board. Followed the instructions to secure posts in hole. Each hole took one bag plus extra. Left for nearly a day to allow to harden better.Installed fence panels and gravel boards. Installed gravel boards first to create a staggered level on a sloped garden. I was very proud at this stage. Fence panels just slid in between fence clips, a couple we had to help in. It?s now been 7 days and I am very disappointed with the postcrete end result. The posts were really solid and not moving before installation of panels. Now severe cracks have appeared and there is a white crystallised residue on top. Postcrete just looks damp and brown, like wet sand. Several of the posts are moving and there are also gaps on all four edges of the post as they are sitting in the postcrete. This will now allow water to make it? sway into the postcrete. Very very disappointed. My wife and I really enjoyed this project but are now disappointed with how secure/solid the posts are. Only time and weather conditions will tell how they will hold up. This experience has made me realise that this product is not good and you should stick to the traditional option and mix it yourself, which someone did suggest to me. It's a little extra work but end result might be better. If there is a next time I will mix using traditional methods.Gave 2 stars because of end result.I wish I could add pictures to show. Wickes, how can I add pictures?"

    Pros:  none
    Cons:  useless

    "Thought this would be ideal to set a number of wooden fence posts , how wrong could I have been. Followed the instructions to the letter, however, within a couple of days the postcrete had cracked on every single post and as such all the posts were loose and unsecure. Had to remove all the postcrete with a hammer and chisel and replace with conventional sand and cement. So don't go for the quick option would be my advice, use something that is up to the job as postcrete is dreadful."
