Tips on Pouring Concrete with Pumps

Pumping is a very efficient and reliable means of placing concrete, which makes it a very economical method as well.

Sometimes, a pump is the only way of placing concrete in a certain location. Such as a high rise building, or large slabs where the chutes of the concrete truck can’t reach where the concrete is needed.

Other times, the ease and speed of pumping concrete makes it the most economical method of concrete placement.
