      How much product should be added to a 60 lbs. bag of ready mix concrete for piers in moist ground?

      Xypex admixture is dosed as a % of the
      cement content of a mix. The standard dosage is between 2% and 3% and unless
      there are aggressive soils (high salt contents, high sulfate contents, or
      other) then 2% addition rate is probably acceptable. The trick is to determine
      the quantity of cement in the bag. If you call the manufacturer of the bagged
      concrete and tell them that you want to know the approximate cement content so
      you can add the right amount of Xypex admixture they will hopefully give you at
      least a range. If they give you a range, use the middle of the range and dose
      at 2.5% to be relatively sure you are getting an appropriate dosage.
