Re: Type V Cement

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Much of the sulfate attack, I've seen in southern Nevada has been from
irrigation water on old curbs, sidewalks, grade beams, and slab edges
from sprinkler and irrigation water.  A large percentage of the municipal
water comes from wells in this area, therefore if there are sulfates in
the soil, they are likely to be in the water, and that includes the water
in the transit mixer or batch plant.

What would be the downside of using Type V, if it wasn't needed?
