Yes, because inventing questions relative to lally columns in the abyss that is the interent is especially satisfying and stimulating to my social well-being.
I'm indesicive, what can i say? Originally I was going to shim the original posts on your recommendation, but once I priced out how much oak i would need to shim the posts, it was 5 dollars more to purchase a new permenant adjustable lally column. And now I am glad I did, because when I toke the pressure off the one column-it just about fell over and the floor directly underneath it was basically loose rocks and broken concrete pieces. Surprisingly the column did not really appear to be sinking into the floor.
Is the steel plate really necessary if I fill the hole with concrete- i mean the old footing is still all there and solid-it was just the first 1/2-1 1/2 inches that was loose and broken. Ooo and the original question still stands-what type of concrete do i use?
Should you wish to continue your cynicism I can always take pictures of the mess and write your name on the picture!
Aside of the sarcasm-I do appreciate your help tho!
