Concrete Pumping

Concrete pumping preparation and what you need to supply

  • A level hard standing area needs to be available for the concrete pumping lorry and a ready-mix-concrete lorry to park (back to back).
  • Cement to grout the pipeline for concrete pumping. (1 x 25kg bag per 10 metres of pipeline and place to dispose of excess grout)
  • A polythene sheet to protect road/driveway from excess concrete leaking from where the concrete mixer backs on to the concrete pumping truck.
  • A high quality supply of ready-mix-concrete with a mix suitable for concrete pumping. We can supply this.
  • Sufficient labour available to lay the ready-mix-concrete
  • A suitable place for the concrete pump operator to wash-out the concrete pumping lorry at the end of the job (Approx 0.3 cubic metres of concrete will need to be disposed of at the end of the concrete pumping process). We can dispose of the residue at an extra cost.
  • A supply of water will help the pump operator - however the concrete pumps do have their own water supply
