Hi there, if a residential homeowner wants to replace a section of concrete that is very big at the backyard,?
then do you recommend the use of a private ready mix concrete truck, private concrete pump and placing and finishing services.
Question answered by Jenny_is_Hot
Are going to remove and replace the pad? Your going to have to clean out and prepare the area first which is the majority of the Labor. You can get a finisher out of the paper or phone book to figure your square footage, and have Ready mix come out and pour it. I think it's a lot easier to just allow professionals do the work. My husband and, I poured a 20 x 40 pad last year for $1500, and now we have a deck around most of it with a garden.

How can I find where the septic drain field area is?
No problem with the septic system now. I want to find a way to determine where the septic field is so that I can plan where I can stack wood and park a tractor without causing damage to it. I have a concrete cavity for a septic tank which is, of course, underground just behind the house. It has two concrete caps which fit snugly into their respective holes. I know this because I had the tank pumped one year ago and dug to find the caps for the pumping service.
Any advice or recommendations are appreciated.

Most areas require a septic design to be submitted for approval and there should be a copy of that design on record with the engineers office of your county. Good Luck and God Bless

Pool pump running high, vac won't work, what do I do?
My 16 x 32 in-ground concrete pool pump usually runs around 12 psi. Today, even after back-washing and checking my filter baskets, it is running at 20 psi and my vac won't run when on filter. I noticed that when on backwash and waste my psi is still around 12, but not when on filter. I assume there is an obstruction somewhere, but how do I clear it?
Mine is a sand filter.
Question answered by Scott M
Sounds like its time for a filter service. At least once a year it needs to be taken apart and cleaned. And make sure after you clean it that you charge it with diatomaceous earth.
How much does a concrete pumping service usually charge per hour?
Question answered by bbj1776
Depend on your location, some charge a set up fee and have a min. charge. Most charge by the yard pumped.
Call a local pumper, they will give you the details.
How can the Philippines improve medical services when all the medical practitioners are leaving the country?
We all know that there are so many medical practitioners especially nurses who are working abroad. The demand for health care providers in other countries became the apple of the eyes of those in the medical field. Even doctors in the country prefer to practice their expertise abroad or take up nursing for them to be able to work in other countries like the US or somewhere in Europe. But with this, is there any hope for the Philippines to improve its health services when it is currently experiencing brain drain?
Question answered by algernico
Your question speaks of two things; your concern for the country and at the same time saying that the medical healthcare is stagnant to say the least.
While it's true that Filipino doctors are going out of the country to get better pay it does not necessarily follow that medical healthcare is stagnant. As a matter of fact, advanced medical equipments and big hospitals are opening up. Hospitals which have the amenities of the big hotels are the trend nowadays, concrete examples are Asian Medical Center and the new St. Luke's Medical Center which is undergoing construction at the Fort, the newly developed sprawling business area in Greater Manila Area. So, Medical Healthcare is improving!
However, your concern is valid in the countryside. This is where the problem lies. The doctors in the provinces are the most doctors going out, to include the new graduates...even the topnotchers of the Medical Board Exams. You cannot blame them, your concern for family and country is the same main driving force, for them the only way to help their family and ergo the country is to make money and they can only get that from the wealthy countries like the US of A. They sacrifice to be away from their love ones just to earn money and provide a good future to their family. These same people are part of the Filipinos working abroad who are pumping the economy and boosting the economy of the country. The Philippines GNP is growing for the past 3 years by an average of 5%.
The key to manage this Filipino migration is for the government to manage the dollars pouring in the country by curbing corruption and self-interest and start focusing on building the economy and structures such that people would have improved purchasing power and the companies and government ofcourse would have improved paying capacity for the medical and teaching professions....
The problem is in the government system....the values of the people in the government. It's not in the migration of the filipino... it's just a consequence....

Hi there, anyone know how much a concrete pumping service costs and how much concrete from a ready-mix company
Question answered by cherokeeflyer
It will depend on how high/far the pumper has to go to put the concrete in place. Where I am you could estimate about 250 hr with a 4 hr min. concrete from the "ready mix" company will depend on how much you buy . 4-5 yards will be more expensive per/yard than
50-60 yds, I suggest you call the concrete company. If you don not know how much you need they will assist. given the depth,length,width

DO NOT drain your pool. Instead close it as you would if you were winterizing it. The reasons why you don't drain are many.
1: If this is a gunite (concrete) plastered pool, that plaster will dry out and spider web. Lots of fine cracks everywhere. You also run the risk of the pool popping out of the ground if this is your pool type and the hydrostatic valve in the main drain malfunctions or jams shut. The water table in the ground can actually float a pool up. I've seen it twice. They never come out level and there's no fix other than building a new pool.
2: If this is a vinyl liner pool, either above ground, on ground or in ground, if you drain it to below 6 inches in the shallow end..it's game over for that liner. They shrink when there's no water load on them holding them in place. When you refill it'll either snap a seam, rip out from built in stairs or rip right around the top bead and out of your coping track. New liner time.
3: If this is a fiberglass shell, you don't drain it for any extended period of time unless you have a sure fire method of keeping the water table in check. Otherwise It'll float..just like a gunite pool. You CAN fix that if the shell is intact but it's expensive and essentially involves removing the pool, excavating and setting it in place again as well as re doing the plumbing lines ( done one).
No..your pump won't rust. Even old ( 20 years plus) pumps were made of brass. Modern ones ( last 20 years) are plastic. The motor is the only thing you should worry about if anything. Don't wrap it in plastic ( holds moisture in), but rather just a simple roof over it with plenty of side flow ventilation and sweep and debris like leafs away from it ( they hold moisture). Drain the pump via the two drain plugs ( one at the bottom front and the other is on the side mid way back. That's all that's needed there besides loosening the pump lid to let the O ring or gasket in there to rebound instead of staying compressed. That will help that seal live longer. A silicone based lubricant would be an added bonus to keep the rubber from drying out.
You can properly winterize a pool and have it look as pristine as you closed it for 2 years easily if it's done properly. You save your water, save on chemical cost at start up and save your pool from damage.
If you are unsure as to how, I suggest calling in a pool tech or look up the many articles on pool closing on the internet if you want to do this yourself.A pool tech would be a good idea especially if your area has had a known freeze. Most service companies will charge between 80- 175 bucks ( depends on how much of the work you've done prior to their arrival) to close a pool.
