No continuity with the amount in each bag
Robperry77 - 15 days ago
I recently did a concrete pad and needed some ballast on a Sunday so used the click and collect service. after getting through 45 bags it was clear to see some bags had over twice the amount of ballast in than others. I purchased from two didn't stores and all the bags had the same issue This made batching the concrete more tricky and I don't feel it falls in line with weights and measures regulations. As you are paying a set amount of money but getting varying amounts of product.
This varies so much batch to batch
Chris the path - 3 months ago
The first batch was large pea gravel, ie pebbles and sand. Difficult to work to cast slabs in situ with a mould, but the finished rough surface was suitable for a sloping path.
When I went to get more to complete the path the same Tarmac ballast was now crushed stone and a different colour. The appearance, both colour and surface finish, are totally different.

Tarmac Ballast - All In One Bag
I Have To Comment On How Absolutely Brilliant This Product Is & Its Quality, Cheap As Chips Too!
Use Just One Full Shovel Full Of 'Mastercrete Cement' To 1 Full Bag Of 'Tarmac Ballast'
(5 Shovels Ballast (1 Bag) To 1 Shovel Of Cement) & What Can I Say But The End Result Is Just Pure, Proper, Solid & Strong Concrete!!
I Would Highly Recommend This Product Which Comes In A Strong Plastic Bag & It's Very Easy To Mix With, Just Don't Add Too Much Water When You've Mixed Ballast & Cement Together, Add Water Bit By Bit, As Some Of 'Ballast Bags' Contents Could Be Already Be A Little Wet When They Are Bagged Up.

Perfect for mixing with concrete to form a slab

Bought a large quantity of bags as home delivery at the time was not available for bulk purchase due to covid. Was perfect mixed with concrete to form a slab for a wooden gazebo
