The sand hides the punctures, but can't prevent them in a crummy 6 mil vapor barrier. Also, the workers walk around on the rebar & embed the dobbies & rebar into the sand. If the concrete is pumped it can move the sand into contact with the rebar. The ASTM piece goes into this at length & it's partially discussed in some of the articles in this
