replacing mono posts with new ones, how to?


One of my mono posts has, literally, rusted all the way through. The others can't be much better.

I have replacements, but I was wondering how exactly to install them. What sort of pressure do you apply, is there some sort of torque spec? Or do you just snug it up?

What's a mono post? I never heard the term before.

We call them lolly columns. In this case, concrete filled lolly columns. The lag bolts just need to be snugged up. The weight of the house kind of keeps them in place. After a month or so check them .

These posts are sunk into the floor and down into the cocrete footing. These footings can get moist from the ground below and slowly rust the pole. There's not a whole lot you'll do since it will take many years to fail and it's not really worth the effort.
Opon replacement, you can seal the pole that's below the floor surface so it takes longer the next time.
