Will this post break if I filled the whole post with cement for a sturdy hold? Will be used for g...

Asked by Al March 16, 2021

No, it should be fine.

How can i anchor those poles to the concrete ?

Asked by Alex March 6, 2021

If you are truly interested in anchoring it more than simply the natural bond from the outside. 1 Most effective is to drill a 5/8 '' hole through the sides about 16'' down- equal on both sides- & then put a stainless steel nut, bolt & washer through it. 2nd take 100 grit sandpaper & rough up the bottom of the post before you pour the concrete & it will increase the bonding to the post base.

Do you need to concrete the post?

Yes, the post will be very stable for long time

Asked by MrsA September 14, 2020


will these support a porch roof with out wood core post?

Asked by Niki July 15, 2020

I would not recommend using these posts for holding weight. If you sleeve them with 4x4s you should be able to carry the load.

How much of the post do you need to put in cement for stability ? Is a foot enough?

Asked by Valerie June 14, 2020

No, I used 2' below grade with the S Fla wind code factory aluminum insert too.

I actually didn't use this as a fencepost, but to create a waterproof, lightweight storage unit for the black tank hose on my RV. I had previously been using two empty battery storage boxes, which caused me to have to coil the hoses up, and I was worried they would get crushed and damaged. This long, straight fence post has an ideal space to fit the hose, even with its collars and the elbow; and ideal balance between wall strength and light weight. I cut a 5-foot length for the main hose, and later added a second level for a partial length, zip-tying them onto the bumper. Easy peasy! I used two post caps, one to close up each end, after I drilled holes to allow it to dry out as I drive, thus eliminating the worst of any lingering odor. It's perfect and I know it will last a long time and be quite serviceable.

Storage tube for RV
I bought two pieces of this vinyl fence post sleeve to make some under frame storage for my Casita travel trailer. One will be used for the sewer hose and the other one has not yet been designated. I wasn't sure how sturdy these sleeves would be but was very pleased at how rigid they felt when I got them. the wall thickness on them is one eighth inch thick. I used some uni-strut 1/4 inch all thread 3/4 inch aluminum square tubing and some aluminum flat bar to mount them under the trailer. I also purchased the end caps that go with the post sleeves and am very happy with how they mounted. I installed some rain gutter inside of the sleeves to act as kind of a drawer. I got the idea for this project from other RV owners who have done this and thought it was a great idea. Having used uni-strut ( two 30 inch pieces ) I will be able to add more tubes if needed with a minimum amount of effort.

Met All My Expectations
I used two of these as storage sleeves in an RV. One for a waste hose and one for a six foot folding ladder. They were perfect for my application.

Sewer Hose Storage!
Seriously - it's a PVC fencepost. Very solid - took me forever to saw through it by hand... because I turned it into an RV sewer hose carrier mounted to the back bumper of our 5th wheel :-) RV-specific hose carriers cost over $100; this cost me (plus 2 end caps) about $30. The 5" diameter easily accommodates the hose plus the bayonet ends. Most RV bumpers are designed to hold these hoses, but the inside of the bumper is rusty and rough and eventually causes worn spots and potential holes. Trust me - when you're dumping a blackwater tank - you do NOT want leaks!!! Due to its purpose in life, it's also not something you want to store inside the RV. The smooth PVC fencepost protects the all-important "Stinky Slinky". I drilled some air holes in the bottom to help it dry; and zip-tied it to the bumper. One end cap is glued on - the other is held in place with a screw eye so it can be removed. A short piece of cord connects the screw eye and cap to the carrier.

Strong and well made vinyl fence post. The product is very reasonable priced as well. The package arrived way earlier than expected from Home Depot, so that was a pleasant and welcomed surprise. Now my project is completed.
