Quote from: archimedes on February 17, 2011, 06:29:45 PMThis really looks interesting. It's hard to believe that so little cement will be so strong. It seems counter-intuitive. We're told that we have to build everything bigger and stronger and thicker with more and more rebar. Amazing that this works.I'm not really clear about the cement material that you are using. In one place you describe it as mortar/stucco and others cement and sand. Not being that familiar with cement work I'm not sure what if any difference there is. Could you clarify? When using pilings is it the same mixture? And how big are those holes (diameter)?I was thinking of building a small pond in my yard. I wanted to built it out of concrete (I hate how this EPDM liners look). I wonder if this system would work for that. I'd probably have to cover the surface with surface bonding cement to seal it though. I could also go much thicker than 1/2 or 1".
