real small sack , add water, shake it up for 20 seconds, dump it in hole around post. It expands like foam, cut off the excess with a knife, cover with dirt and wa-la, done. Add says it is equal to 100 lb bag of saccrete???  

  Wife showed me a video  of the stuff being used but when they said equal to sacrete,????How do you spell sack crete???

Probably on you tube but I don't do you tube...I have my doubts! But I also didn't think Rome could be built in a day, so there!!

I've heard of it, and watched a video they (Sika) made using it. I do so little post setting it's of little interest to me, other than the concept.

I used to strive at doing builds and repair so they would last a lifetime.  I have come to realize a lifetime isn't a long as it used to be so it would probably be fine for me to use.

I had heard about something like this but didn't know whats it was called. I had thought about using a can or two of Great Stuff large gap filler but it didn't seem like it would hold up in ground contact.

 

Just what I need to reset the mailbox post. I'll check BORG for it next time I'm there. Thanks for the thread and info guys!

We used a similar product when utility poles were straightened.   The product we used had something in it that smelled like creosote, I know it wasn't but it kept any animals from chewing it out.   Worked good for that but was not used for a new set.   Roly
