  3. The top of the concrete will appear to be dry, however water will be absorbed up through the material.

  5. Do not apply an unbraced load (such as fencing material or pergola roofing) for at least 24 hours. Any lateral force during this curing period may disturb the base and make the post unsteady.
  6. If, after 24 hours, the top of the concrete is still dry, sprinkle the top of the hole with 500 ml of water.
