originally i was planning to pour a small pad 4'x4' to place a water chlorination system on. the system full will be 1000 lbs. the weather has gone bad and is getting worse. this project needs to be done by monday the day we will move into the house. i'm thinking of securing 6x6's together for a temp. fix until spring. i know that i can do the concrete and protect it from the cold but there is a huge storm heading in. does the 6x6 idea sound reasonable or am i fooling myself? there will be a shed to protect the water system, fully insulated and heated. and would this be considered a temporary structure to the town. or SHOULD i get permits. i really was not planning on permits.
I have no idea if you need permits, if you are concerned call the local code enforcement officer. As for the support, if the natural soil is decent, i.e. sandy or gravelly, you can certainly support your system by placing 6x6 wood beams in a square, and fill with crushed stone. You need to clear off the snow first, and you should compact the stone using a whacker, but 1000 pounds is a very small load on a 4' square pad, so I would not get too concerned. Plenty of time to pour a footing in the spring.
