RE: Foam Over Underground Sewer

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Paul,

I would suggest Void Form http://www.technicoat.com/voidform1.html or
SureVoid http://www.surevoid.com/.  It is used to keep expansive soils from
pushing up on walls and structures between piles.  

Or you could just wood form and span over the top, and leave the wood form
in.  The foam products will put too much load on the sewer before crushing.

Regards,
Harold Sprague
