What this is, is someone filled in an old in ground swimming pool with clay and didn't punch a hole in the bottom to let any surface or rain water escape, so over time the clay became extremely saturated. When I drove the mini excavator over it the clay began to "pump" or liquify and this is what happened. I have seen soil liquefaction before but never to this extreme. The homeowner was very concerned as you can imagine. I dug all the clay out and hauled it off, broke up the bottom of the pool and re-filled the pool with fill from onsite.

Get a second battery. I find the battery's last 4-6hrs max. I use Adobe Premiere Pro currently to edit. Very expensive and powerful program. I have been using it for about 6 months. Start out with Windows Movie maker, or Imovie for mac. They are both free and come on computers from the manufacturer. Thats what I used before the Adobe program.

I use an external battery pack, I cut a hole in the case so I could plug the cable from the camera to the battery pack. The battery packs I'm currently using are Anker's 10k mAh. The GoPro Hero 3 Black's battery is 1050 mAh.

On my Mac, I use Final Cut Pro X, which has dramatically came down in price vs its predecessor.

Here are some photos from a permeable paver driveway we did last fall. The driveway is 4000sf.

The driveway was excavated a total of 21". And is a full exfiltration system.

12" of #2 stone (1 1/2"), 4" of #57 stone (3/4") and 2" of #8 (3/8") stone were used as the base of the pavers.

The pavers are 3 different colors blended together of Genest Tidewater 80mm pavers.

You can watch a timelapse of this project here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3e4RhsKDwHo

Onto the pictures.

Before







Starting to remove the old asphalt





Section by the house excavated down 21"



To save on trucking costs each load we hauled out of fill we hauled in stone. There was no room to stockpile materials onsite so I had to make sure the driveway was always drivable. I had to ramp down into the excavated area so our truck could back in and dump each time.



First load of #2 stone. We also put down a soil stabilization fabric to separate the stone from the sub base. The sub base was NOT compacted because this is a permeable system.



Spreading stone



Setting some conduit for a future generator the homeowner wanted to have put in.









Compacting the #2 stone with our Weber CR8



#2 stone all done



One more conduit for future irrigation system.



Laying out another layer of fabric for strength between the #2 and #57 stone.





Dumping #57 stone



Spreading the #57 stone





More #57



Compacting



Starting to lay. No pictures of screeding the #8 stone, I was not on the job at that point.





We completely filled the joints, put edge restraint on and compacted the pavers as we went in order to keep bringing pallets of pavers to the laying face. We drove directly on the driveway with our A300



Setting the granite compass rose







Compass rose with no infill yet



Finished shots

Looks great! What did you put between the pavers? We use gator dust, but that sure looks a lot more coarse than the stuff we use. That almost just looks like gravel.
