Step 1: Dig Hole & Level Post

To begin the project you will need to dig a post hole approximately 2 ft. in depth and 8-10 in. in diameter. Next, place the post directly in the center of the hole, making sure it is levelled. Then, pour the PostFix into your hole. You will have the opportunity to readjust and check your post to make sure it is still levelled for approximately 10 seconds.

Step 2: Roll & Mix

Next, place the Sika PostFix bag directly next to the hole to begin the mixing process. Per the instructions printed on the packaging, set the bag on a flat surface and roll it in the direction of the red arrows. Roll it like a tube of toothpaste until the middle seal ruptures, allowing the PostFix reaction to start. To mix, grab both ends of the bag, holding it horizontally, and start shaking it back and forth vigorously for 15 seconds.

Step 3: Cut

Immediately after mixing, I use a knife to cut the specified corner to prepare for pouring.

Step 4: Pour

Pour the mixed material into the hole, making sure to coat the post on all sides as shown in the image.

Expanding Foam

Within seconds Sika PostFix will start to expand and fill the hole. Adjust the post slightly to make sure it is levelled prior to it being fully cured. After about 3 to 5 minutes the post can stand on its own. After 2 hours, the post should be completely set.

Mounting Holder

To install the hose mount, make two pilot holes and screw the screws in about halfway. Then, hang your hose mount and finish screwing the screws in to ensure it is sturdy.
