• How much water do I add to a 60 lb bag of quikrete?


  • You will need 3 quarts (2.8 liters) of water for every 80 pounds (36.3 kilos) of Quikrete concrete.

    Likewise, what happens if you add too much water to quikrete? You cant put too much water in concrete to make it not set up. Too much water can make it not mix properly, or run out of the form/hole/whatever. But the concrete will absorb exactly the correct amount of water needed for the chemical reaction.

    Additionally, how much water do you mix with a bag of concrete?

    Project Instructions Measure the recommended water amount (each 80-pound bag of concrete mix will require about 3 quarts of water). Pour approximately 2/3 of the water into the depression. If using liquid cement color, add to the mixing water.

    Is quikrete as strong as concrete?

    Concrete is a mixture of water, cement, sand just like mortar. However concrete also has gravel and other coarse aggregates that makes it stronger and more durable. Concrete has a low water-to-cement ratio and is a thinner consistency than mortar. One of the concretes we sell is the Quikrete Fast Setting Concrete Mix.
