Jason, that is a beautiful Techo-Bloc job. Looks like Mini-Creta Plus 3" & 6" walls all capped and coped with Neptune caps. I really like the seating wall surrounding the upper deck area. All it needs now are some appropriate plants and bathing beauties.

Here are some construction pics. Look at the piece of gunite and concrete the pool guy buried right under the patio for us. I hate working behind other trades some times.

whats this flow fill stuff?

Flowable Fill is a useful replacement for compacted aggregate. It works great in applications like McKee has used. Works well for overdigs as well.

It's basically a concrete mixture without stone aggregate or very fine aggregate, usually a course sand mixture. It is supposed to be self leveling, but I believe the jury is still out on that. It works great as a base material for very large retaining wall blocks, like Techo-Bloc's Monumental Stone.

Looks solid bro! How far did you drop that rebar down in front of the wall? How many yards of Flowable Fill did that end up taking? $ per yard?

McKeeLand
08-21-2007, 07:07 PM
the pins in front of the wall are just an insurance measure because we had not backfilled the buried course yet. they are just hammered in a few inches. the job used 27yards at $69/yard.

McKee:
Having never used flowable fill, or that Techo block for that matter, will the fill blow through the face of the wall. I don't see any filter fabric. Does this present a problem, or does the fill actually have a curing agent?

Did you put in down all in one day or do trucks on different days to let it dry?

I was just about to ask...And if you don't need to use it (and you obviously know what you are doing) did you use it for the screenings since this would wash out???

That's cheap. I was quoted 142.00 / yd for a job I'm on .

McKeeLand

we don't put anything behind the wall, you hardly get any washout. if you do hit it with the hose or broom after it dries. that was all one pour with three trucks. the only time that you need to do more than one pour is when you have a grid layer. this was only 18" exposed so it could be done all at once. my guys where walking on top of that at the end of the day and laying pavers the next day.

Hey McKee,

Nice Job. Kudo's to you for using Step filler block!.

I know Yardville Supply has Flowable Fill too. They're up by me (central Jersey) We haven't used it yet, but I do have a large project pending and might give it a try. You say it was all in one pour? Does it set up quick enough between loads to walk on? It must have some very interesting properties. I also noticed you didnt have any filter fabric behind the wall. The block looks like EP Henry's Coventry Wall, which has a liberal amount of gaps the stuff can flow out of. Was it a problem at all? Regular cement will eventually leak water and stain everything white. How easy is it to spread around?

Will do, the landscape should be done in a few weeks. give me a call or i will call you then.

ChampoinLS,

thanks man, we don't put any fabric. we hardly get any bleed through and what does comes right off. when you pouring it you wouldn't be able to walk on it for a few hours. depends on the day and how long between trucks. some days it sets up enough between pours that you start to walk on top of the last pour. by the end of the day though we could walk on it and finish smoothing it out.
