24" Sono-Tube Pour ?
 
I'm putting a 36" x 36" x 12" footing on top of sandstone rock at the waters edge. Pinned into the rock with rebar and uprights for reinforcing of the 24" x 6' Sonotube to be placed on top.

Before pouring my footing, should I be apply any type of bonding agent on the sandstone first, so that the concrete bonds better?

Thank you in advance.

I'm not a concrete person, so I cannot help with an answer. I did notice "at the waters edge" though.
Would this be a "moving/running water" situation as in a lake or river? The only reason I am asking is that in my State ALL running/moving water shorelines are governed under the Army Cops of Engineers and ANY structure placed within so many feet of the shoreline of said waters would have to have a permit. I've seen the ACE come back and remove, then charge the site owner for, some expensive re-mods people put in at the shore lines of lakes around here only because a permit was not pulled. David

In this application, I don't see the bonding agent as necessary, or even much help.

Appreciate the reply, that seems to be the general consenus.

Thank you.

David,

In our State as well, all permits in place.

Cheers!
