In Marin Co. most our our foundation concrete gets pumped. Standard mix is 3/8" pea gravel, 6 sack, with a 4" slump. It probably tests above 4000psi. YMMV

I have a contractor that wants to use a pea gravel grout in lieu of regular
aggregate concrete due to pumping reasons.  In all my years I have never
been asked this.  At first thought I can't think of a reason why not. Any
reasons why not or anything else I should watch for?

Thanks,

Joe
