But the slap i am useing have a staining problem when useing cement based product. What ells could i use to get a nice secure joint. Then i was going to use just sand but some has sed to me i need some thing more than just sand pleas help me :cry: ?
use a slightly damp mix of 4:1,To test ,grab a handfull and squeeze it,there should be no moisture but it should retain its shape in your hand thats the consistancy you require.
Brush into the joints and use a finger trowel or pointing tool to iron the joints,make sure its well compacted or you will get holes.
