I can not believed I pay 132 $ per hour just to get the pumping machine at my place. If you think by calling a pumping company to get them to pour for you that is not the fact. You will have to pour you self in the frame of your foundation or for your garage floor. I was sure they will pour the concrete and I would just have to take care of leveling the concrete instead I work over 6 hours after the guy left to try to save my investment of 750$ for the pumping machine and 5oo$ of concrete.
I will be honest they should send 2 persons for that kind of work.
I really wonder what the guy would do if the home-owner is not able to help him like I did.
For that reason I had hard time leveling the first side we poured (too much cement in the wooden form), we start and I get splashed all over myself with the cement because he asked me to hold the pipe. After I did not get the chance to level after we pour that side right away. For that, I had to break the extra cement I will have to come back to fix that later.
And what can I say about the waste after work done, over 15 big black bags of concrete and waste you can see on the picture. I will have to pay somebody to come and pick up all that trash.
If you looking to do a small or medium size cement work do not go for the pumping - it ended up being too much work after all. Take your time rent a mixer and make you own cement and it will be easier after all, believe me I work over 6 hours to level and clean, break the waste cement after the pumping guy left my home. I should get a discount
