Footing Forms and Placing Concrete
The concrete trucks should be close to the pre-formed footings and the concrete should be dropped no more than 4 to 6 feet above the ground. However, this is not the case sometimes when covering long distances. A pump truck can be brought in to reach distances up to 500 feet. Concrete must not be placed at a rapid rate and evenly spread by the pump truck's operator along with foundation crew. The footing for a foundation provides help in spreading the load of the structure.
