*For 12" tubes, score and snap off every second flap.
4. Starting from the bottom of the tube working upwards, apply duct tape to 1" above the flaps so that tube is secured into footing.
3. Level and align with other forms. Shovel and tamp small amounts of back-fill on and around base to hold in place.
*Footing base must be below regional frost line.
4. Back-fill to grade maintaining tube vertical level and in alignment with other columns leaving a recommended 6"-12" of tube protruding.
* Please call or message us for any other technical document or support
1. Excavation should be below recommended regional frost line for your area.

3. When properly assembled the tube will sit snug into its appropriate side tabs.
1. Center REDIBASE over tube then simply push base down over your cut-to-length tube.
2. Place your formed columns into excavation on undisturbed soil.
2. Pull tube up through REDIBASE flaps until either 8" or 10" small side tabs slip under the tube bottom.
** We recommend discussing the percentage of "slump allowance" with your concrete provider, as to not be short of concrete mix for your project.
5. Fill with concrete before ground settling occurs.
*Under dry conditions, concrete pour can be delayed for up to 48 hours if necessary.
