The brush was just pushing around all the sand when I was applying the coat of primer. Neverending nightmare:

No vacuum within reach? Did you pour yet?

Yes, I have a vacuum. I didn't pour yet. I will tomorrow (Thursday) morning. I wait till the primer dries then vacuum? I'm afraid if I start vacuuming everything will just keep coming off, sort of like when you pull a thread from your shirt and it ends up undoing the entire shirt.

The primer dries quick and under normal conditions has to be re-applied if you wait 24 hours.

If it's any where that bad, you should stop and rip everything out.

I'm starting to think this thread is a test of my sanity. I'll keep playing though.

Saw your post and went ahead and did it:

Advice on Bathroom Remodel-imageuploadedbydiy-chat1439420064.495703.jpg

It was easier than I thought it'd be, but you were right, I came up short with one bag. Atleast now it'll dry hard and even which will make priming for another coat/bag much easier.

I'll post pictures tomorrow.

As a side note, SLC is pretty damn expensive. A 50lb bag set me back almost 50$. Is this at par with your prices in the US? I can't imagine having to do an entire floor, ouff... That gets expensive quickly.

So how come you only had one bag on hand?

You shouldn't have to re-prime if you pour before 24 hours. Read the directions.

I think it's approx. $30 usd here. It's 50% more there cuz yous guys get a lot of free stuff.

There's companies that do large areas by pumping the stuff from large mixers.

I only had one bag on hand because my calculations were off. I thought I'f have more than enough with that one bag.

I have some primer left so that's not a problem if it gets to that point of needing more.

If I were to buy another bag and re-pour tomorrow, how will I know how much water I'll need to mix this time, since I don't think I'll need the whole second bag? The directiona only tell you how much water per the entire bag...

This is where that math you learned in middle and high school will come in handy. Just simple math. Is it all still too low or just one area that didn't get any at all? What you poured tonight will be dry after a few hours, so you can test if with a tile and a piece of cardboard under the tile. This is where reserving some is a good idea, may have to go back and touch up a few spots.

Advice on Bathroom Remodel


Do you think I can get away with using this one to finish it up, since it's only 20$?:

Second pour didn't go so smoothly due to getting the mixing proportions a bit off when I was trying not to mix the whole bag. The pour was too watery. Let's hope it hardens.

Not good at math huh? Why didn't you just keep adding a bit more powder when you noticed it was different from the first batch? Weigh the powder, measure the water and wa la.... Haven't you ever made a half-batch of brownies?
