    Lazer level
    and pre cut your pipe and mark the sizes as you go

    Not sure what you mean by petestal.....

    We have done two rooftop installs in the past, one was approx. 2000sq.ft. over top a cafeteria, laid the interlock on styrafoam and (at that time stonedust less than 1") Compacting was really touchy I do remember that. Our other project was on this huge home in the country (no pictures of either job) we laid some decorative patio slabs on second floor balcony, we used riviera patio slabs. This job we used a thin layer of sand.
    We had fork lift access for both jobs. Install would of been quicker than actually starting from scratch on level ground.
