Questions & Answers

Cut in half?

Can these tubes be cut in half? 48 inches is too long for my application. If I can cut these tubes in half and use the shorter pieces it would be perfect.

I also have the same problem. I am going to try to use 8" plastic sewer pipe connections (expensive..about $15 each) available at commercial plumbing stores. Glue with "blue pipe glue"...sticks to pipe but how about cardboard? Or use liquid nail.....or epoxy?

I would call the Sika company and ask them. We do not see a problem with it but it will be best to get their blessing on their product applications.

how much concrete does it take to fill tube ?

I need to fill the full 4 ft tube how many bags per tube?
Asked by: deckguy
For any cylinder shape, volume =3.14 (radius x radius)(height). Find radius as half the width of the diameter, multiply it to itself, multiply answer by height of tube, multiply THAT answer by pi...as 3.14.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal Form Tube For Setting 4x4 Posts This form tube is easy to use and helps to simplify the process of setting concrete for posts or columns. The manufacturer provides printed instructions on the outside of the tube form. Most important is that this form tube which is made of treated cardboard must be completely dry prior to concrete being poured into it for the tube form to maintain maximum strength and integrity. The manufacturer also specifies the amount of concrete mix required per foot on the outside of the form tube to fill the length of the form tube. The diameter of the form tube is +/- 0.5 inch to make it cheaper and easier to ship several form tubes by nesting them inside of each other. I used three 80 pound bags of concrete mix to fill all of the 48" length of this 8" diameter tube form and had some concrete left over. It is always better to have some concrete left over then it is to not have enough concrete because concrete must be mixed properly and poured all at once for all of the concrete to bond correctly as one solid mass before the concrete sets. The 8" diameter of this form tube is an ideal size for setting 4x4 posts since the Strong Tie post bases recommend 2" of concrete on all sides of their bases. 8" diameter is also just large enough to be able to use a spade shovel to compact the concrete as it is poured into the tube form.

These forms not only help reduce waste, but they help making poured piers align perfectly. I have used other versions of this product but these other all seemed flimsy and too costly. Dig a hole, set your depth, and pour...its just that easy to know you're producing a lasting footing for whatever project you're working on around the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes pouring footings easy These are the only way to go if you have to pour footings for under a deck or anything else. Just dig a hole to the depth you need, check local codes, cut to length, drop it in the hole and back fill around the outside for stability. You are ready to pour. Having a nice straight end makes setting the tops level on multiple footings easy with a string line.
