These are the finished product!
Last year I posted these instructions, thought they might be of interest to some of our newer members, or some who missed it the first time.
Here's what I used:
- 1 10" piece of 4" schedule 40 PVC, cut into 4 equal pieces
- 2 80# bags of Sackrete.
- 8 test caps, 4 with 3/8" holes in top
- 4 eyebolts, 3/8" diameter, 8" long, with nuts (add washers if you wish)
After you cut the pipe into 4 pieces, put the test caps in one end and place them with that end down on a level surface. Fill each pipe half full of the dry Sacrete and add one cup of water. You can stir this with an old broom handle if you wish, I did, but am not sure it mattered.
After a quick stir, add more dry Sacrete till the level is about 6 inches from the top of the pipe. Add one more cup of water and wait for the level to fall. Add water and Sacrete alternatively in small amounts till the level of mix is up to the top of the pipe.
Insert the test caps, with the eyebolts and nuts, through the holes, into the wet mix and push the caps down tight. Then push the eyebolts down into the wet cement, stopping a half inch or so from the cap.
