Concrete work...continued The sewer riser being filled with concrete. I built a re-rod frame work inside the sewer riser and also place a 8' concrete filled steel lally column in the center. This will be embedded inside the concrete pier for the scope along with 4- 3/4" re-rods. The sewer riser weighs in at 1500 pounds. Next 1/2 ton of 3/4 stone in the bottom of the sewer riser. Now 50- 80 pound bags of concrete mix was mixed and poured into the sewer riser. At this point the foundation/footer weighs about 3 1/2 tons!
