"Bigfoot" footings


I was wondering if anyone had any experience with bigfoot footings. They attach to the sonotube and enable you to pour both the footing and the piers all at once. Where i live the footings need to be 24"x24"x6" and the piers to be 18" and 8" above grade. I feel these would make the job go a little faster and alieviate the need for 2 separate pours. Any ideas/guesses if these meet code. BTW this is for a 14"x14" deck

thanks

Check their website but I believe only the BF36 will fit an 18" tube, which means you must dig at least a 36" diameter hole. That's one huge footing for a deck support.
