how many bags of cement will i have to buy if i wanted to fill a 5 gallon bucket?
i am going to fill it half full, put a friend of mines’ Christmas present into it, and then cover the rest.
I worked in concrete for two years so i know how to set it all up, but we generally dealt with trucks of concrete, not buckets.
so. how many bags? or how many pounds?
A five gallon bucket can hold .45 cubic feet of concrete when mixed with water. In other words, one 60 pound bag of pre-mix or an equivalent Portland Cement/rock and sand mix. At .45 cubic feet the bucket may overflow and/or be too deep to properly mix, but I do it all the time for difficult access pours of small quantities.
Hard to say. Just one 12′ long 2×4 in a 5 gal bucket of cement should be rock steady, but hang a banner big enough to catch the wind between the tops of two like that and the whole thing could tip over fairly easily depending on the wind and the size of the banner.
1 bag of 80 lb. concrete will do.
Enough to fill your bucket.
It depends on what you are going to mix it with.
curious to know if this can be used for a gazeebo
i don’t know accurately but it can thake about 5 bags.
loki how long has it been since your friend called you an ********
