Re: Pressure washing & resanding paver walkways

Funny. The installer guy said the exact same thing in almost the exact same words when he was explaining it to us.

You don't want to use a 'tamping' machine (presuming you do)...you want to use a vibrating plate compactor.

Two different beasties...!

I agree. That's the correct terminology. I was just assuming that's what was meant. That's probably not a good thing to do since a person may go out and get the wrong thing.

Great advice guys! This is why this forum rocks ...

I'll look into renting said vibrating plate. I used the word 'tamping' but had a picture of a vibrating plate compressor in mind!

These are nice enough pavers that I'd like to keep them that way!
