Do any if you lot have any ideas for this. Had a friend who had pavers done and he had a lot replaced but he's trying to get the old sand out.
That's the problem. it already has set. The Rep from the company who checked it said that the installer didnt wet it down quick enough. Basicly what happened was the rain only just about set up the surface. By the time they sprayed it down with the hose the surface was dry and was not letting enough water through to soak the rest of the sand. Which meant it didnt get its full strength from the get go so now it coming up all over the place and his pool gets full of sand from the pavers. The installer aint coming back as he has had 3x to correct the issue so he got another company to come out and fix what they could but 60% of the pavers are still bad. They need to find a way to remove the old sand which never set right from the beginning so new stuff can go down.If the surface of the blocks is clean, I would not mess with it, the poly will eventually absorb enough moisture to set completely.
They were Mexican and couldn't read English. The company who makes the product said they are trying to make the instructions more clear on what to do.MarkJames said:Those guys didn't read the instructions, eh? Or they didn't have air to blow off the surface dust...or they didn't have a spray nozzle with a mist setting handy when it was time to mist. The polymeric sand I'm familiar with sets up like rubberized caulk. If that's what you got, utility knife (and extra blades) is probably the way to go.
