Not total, there are two piers that are supporting a roof as well. 3610 and 3870 each based on 40/10 (L/D) in the deck and 50/15 on the roof plus the weight of the pier.

The more I think about this, the less I like it. Water would eventually seep down the side of the pier behind the plastic and be trapped in the bag.
My new plan is to:
Fill the bottom of the hole with cement
Push the tube into the wet cement and fill around it with earth
add a few sticks of rebar and fill the rest.

Hopefully I can get eight of these done today.

how about an actual tube base. And if you flip it over and use it on the top it makes a nice funnel to help fill the tubes.
