Decided to give this a go, as you got SO much more for the money. Its a big ol' tub - resealable so its not going to go rock hard, as I always seem to find with the tubes (as the lid isnt air tight.

But its done the job just as good as Polyfilla. Which I originally looked at - and it seems to be cheap, as its £5.73 for the 1kg pot at the moment (more expensive for the 600/900!) But at this price, the Ronseal is just cheap as chips.

The thread title didn't really make sense at first until I read the description, it's a bit confusing mentioning Polyfilla and the price of it when this is a deal for Ronseal filler.

The mods have weaved their magic. The new format confuses me - it asks for price - and so I always thought it would add that to the title for me.
But will it fill the loneliness in my heart?

For a godiva, its got to be worth a shot.
Or spring for the extra and go Quick Drying?
Ordered thanks
"for interior and exterior use"

"Areas of use: Interior walls and ceilings."

So which is it?
Don't get too over excited, its only £4.49 from tools-paint.com (plus delivery making it actually more expensive unless you collect) for the same 1.8kg size. Nevertheless, I have also ordered it as its a good enough price on prime. thanks OP.
big tubs pointless, as they go hard even when sealed. Best to get a smaller tub for the job you are doing, rather than waste of using 25% off it and then leaving it sat on the shelf going hard
How is helping people buy a better product and not waste their money engaging in an argument? Idiot.
Bought some for the crack.

Heat.
I wouldn't but any ready mixed filler. Powder is much better value, as you're not paying for water and if you keep it dry it will keep a lot longer (Years!). Mixing filler takes 2 minutes and you can also decide how runny/firm you want it based on the job (runnyish for thin cracks, thicker for bigger holes etc).
I am considering smashing the walls with a hammer to take advantage of the deal.
Where can I buy a cheap hammer?

Dont forget to factor the hammer cost into the deal. It might work out to be a fiscally poor decision.

But, you can't put a price on fun. That's my motto.
I used to buy Ronseal / pollyfilla but then found Toupret... far more superior, sands down really easily, far easier to apply and there’s no shrinkage
Red Devil One Time Filler is the best filler I have ever used, very light and smooth. Far better than the powder filler as you don't throw half of it away each time you use it.

If used correctly you don't even need to sand it.

I completely disagree!!

First you have to find something to mix it in which is usually one of my wife's tupaware bowls, so she isn't usually too impressed. Then you have to find something to mix it with. Tipping the filler usually results in a cloud of dust which has to be cleaned up later. Add water - usually too much so you have to add a bit more filler and then another cloud of dust. Mix it up, usually ends up too stiff, lumpy or sloppy. After filling in a couple of holes you then throw 90% of it away and then you have a bowl that needs to be cleaned....

Ready mixed - open the lid, use what you require and then put the lid back on.

I know which one I would prefer to use!

More like:-
Ready mixed - open the lid, find out that it's all dried out and useless (or on it's way to drying out and too stiff), chuck it in the bin.

Your cons, whilst mostly true (half of them are competence related), are hardly significant IMO. If it's really that much inconvenience or hassle, just use an old ice cream or marg tub, mix it outside and then chuck it away afterwards. Will take approximately 1 minute.

I guess it comes down to (slight! lol) convenience vs cost. Powder is a lot cheaper and lasts for years if kept dry and you can mix it to suit the job.

I use Red Devil One Time Filler, I have never had a tub dry out. My last tub was 2 years old and I finished it off yesterday. It is always the same consistency regardless of age. Give it ago, you might be surprised. It's not like any other filler I have used so as long as the lid is put on correctly it won't dry out.

I agree that most ready mixed fillers dry out but not this one, it is sold in litres not kg's as it is that light.

And...I never seem to have an old ice-cream or Marg tub when I want to fill a few holes that's why I always end up using a tupaware bowl etc. And I have never seen a warning on a box of filler saying 'only for use by a competent filler person'

I use this and I’ve got a tub that is 18 months old and it’s still good. Wipe around the lid seal before resealing and it’ll be good

Thanks for the info. I would have felt so foolish if I didn't do that. You saved my bacon. Ooh bacon, nice. Anyone know where I can get some cheap bacon?
