  1. Just for clarity/specificity sake … Cement is Portland Cement… State of cure, moisture content and plasticity… AKA "liquid vs. solid" is not relevant to what its called.

    Cement added to gravel and sand (with or w/o other add mixtures like fiber reiforcement, expanded shale etc.) is "Concrete".
    Cement, sand and lime is "Mortar".
    Cement and sand ONLY (depending on ratios, other aditive may also be added depending on application) are "Grout", "topping mix" or many other types of "special purpose" mixes (like counter top concrete etc….)
    Such as:
    Cement mixed with very fine sand and an alkyl cellulose derivative is"thin set", and when latex is added to that mix its called "Modified Thin set".

    Water is only added to "activate" the cement in the mix an to facilitate plastic flow in what ever ratio called for (spec'd) for the mix and application for the activation/saturation of the cement in the mix and only really relevant to state of cure and only for the time that the cement in the mix is still curing.

    Great video's though and keep up the great and HARD work !!!

  2. water wont do harm to those concrete pads. If something does its the frost. Where i live you have to put foundations to 140cm+ or the frost will bring everything to surface. πŸ˜›

  3. Whats the Difference Between Cement and Concrete? Although the terms cement and concrete often are used interchangeably, cement is actually an ingredient of concrete. Concrete is basically a mixture of aggregates and paste. The aggregates are sand and gravel or crushed stone; the paste is water and portland cement.
