Poolmanct ...speaking Of Engineers ...steel Schedules


had an engineer suggest 16" OC (throughout entire shell - deep end too)

i think that's cuttin it a little short ...

he did say it would have to be #4 (1/2 in.) vs. 3# (3/8)

but i still think that's cuttin it a little short ....


(my typicals are using #4 at 10" OC in shallow and 5" OC in areas deeper than 3') in the least - it's 12"/6"

(walls & floor)

(typical soil is decent here... i have run into some marine clay....)



Ray ... in your opinion, am I being excessive?
