Re: Pier design and sand
Hi,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The other benefit, I was considering, is that it can be sawn to length,
with some work. However, you can do a deal with a contractor doing road work,
and he will cut one evenly, to your requirements, using his machinery - you
might even get the pipe cheaper than from the dealer (who might not want to
sell you just one). I think they are standard 10 foot long, too much to bury.
You can also decide if you want the bell-swaged wider end up, for an inlaid
(wooden ?) plug/mounting-plate/pier vibration reducer - or swaged end down, to
have a slightly wider footing 4 feet down.
