Do yourself a big favor and just replace the footing. Having installed fence fro years I've always regretted trying to salvage posts and footings. Do it right once or do it wrong over and over again.

First I want to point out that the EPB bases must be installed in concrete. The EPB44 has the Simpson Strong-Tie® gray paint finish which provides a low level of corrosion protection. It can also be ordered with the hot-dip galvanized finish (EPB44HDG) which provides a medium level of corrosion protection and can be used in many applications with treated wood, but not all. Please see the Corrosion section of our website to determine the recommended finish for your specific application based on environment, type of treated wood being used, chemical retention, etc. Thank you!
