RE: seaint Digest for 11 Oct 2010

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Chuck and others,
Thank you for all the great help.  I talked to the contractor this afternoon
regarding some other aspects of this little project.  Of course I have to
revise some calcs due to dimensional changes when some of the components
(walking surfaces and pre-fab railings etc).  During the conversation, he
told me he found a concrete supplier that can pump a 1/2" crushed aggregate.
So all should be wonderful. But as always a good learning experience on
Seaint.

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
