Concrete Pouring
pouring concrete in water
Concrete pouring can be done one of 2 ways, directly from a ready mix concrete truck or from a concrete pumping truck. In situations such as home foundations, high-rise building, large slabs or when a high degree of control is needed, you would use a concrete pumping truck instead of a ready mix concrete truck.


The Mix For Concrete Pouring

When pouring concrete, controlling the flow of concrete from the truck is key. The standard hose size for pouring concrete is 4-inches. Foam forms (ICF's), used during concrete pumping, are less tolerant to the concrete pumping pressures than wood or aluminum forms. When pouring concrete into an ICF, a 2-inch hose should be used. Some ICF manufacturers recommend the use of immersion vibrators while others prohibit them because they can cause blowouts.
Blowouts in ICF's are uncommon but here are some tips for concrete pouring that will help reduce the risk:

  • using a 2-inch concrete pumping hose for placement during concrete pumping

  • use a 2-inch concrete pumping hose which will allow the line pump to continue pumping the concrete at full speed without the danger of a form blow-out

  • during concrete pumping, a smaller hose gives the operator greater control of placement when pumping concrete

  • concrete pouring tools such as 90-degree elbow fittings at the end of
    the concrete pumping hose, will break the long fall from the concrete pumping truck down to the nozzle

Pouring a Concrete Slab

When pouring a concrete slab it's important to protect against moisture seepage from below your home. If you leave your home unprotected when pouring a concrete slab, you leave your home prone to moisture seepage as well as mold and mildew, lowered indoor air quality, damaged flooring and a host of other problems. The best way to protect your home when pouring a concrete slab is to install pouring a concrete driveway drainage membrane plus under your concrete slab. pouring concrete under water drainage membrane plus protects your home against moisture seepage and can help protect against radon gas. In addition, it bridges gaps, cracks, voids and allows your home to shift and settle all without affecting its performance.
