How to use a mortar grout bag
I try to lay some paver on my entrance way. And having a big problem on mortar grout bag. No matter what I did(press hard), the mortar seem don't want to come out to fill in the joint. I did put allot of water when mix mortar but still no luck. If you known the trick, please help!!!
There really is no real trick to using a grout bag. Check to make sure that the nozzle is clear or if your bag doesn't have one that you have cut the end of the bag large enough for the grout to pass through. The other thing to remember is don't press the bag twist the top like you are trying to wring it out. Other than that there is not much that can go wrong.
I bought the grout bag from Home Depot, made by plastic with red nose, yes.. it has a little hold with 1/4" diameter.

Sounds as if the problem is not the bag but the mix. Most spec.mix mortar seems to separate in the bags and if you don't mix hole bags at a time you do not get a good mix. Also and don't ask me why the fine grains of sand always seem to be gone leaving a course and hard to finish mixture. go to your lumber or block yard and buy a bag of Type N or S mortar mix ask them where you can get some plaster sand or you can buy silica sand which is finer yet. Mix the sand and mortar 1 part mortar to 3 parts sand and that should do it.
