    How soon do I start watering the shotcrete?

    Just finished getting shotcrete installed around 5 hours ago. Should I water it tonight or wait til the morning? I plan to water 3 times a day for a week or two.

    They told us to water it right away and water it every 3 hours the first day until it got dark outside and then for the next couple days but not as often. You do not need to water it for 1+ weeks, that's overkill.

    Mine told us twice a day for two weeks - I got lucky, it rained several days so I didn't have to!
