Do I have to buy extra concrete when I use a line pumping company?
Yes, you should plan on utilizing an extra half yard to prime the pump and fill the hose. This is dependent on how much hose you require, so call us to discuss this matter.
Do you pump concrete for industrial users?
Yes, we pump for industrial users. Typical jobs are footings, as well as jobs above the truck level, such as concrete floors on the second, third or fourth floors.
Do you provide residential concrete pumping?
Yes, many of our concrete pumping customers are for home owners. Typical reasons for residential line pumping include the distance from the truck to the pour area (back of the home). Cleanliness of pumping over new grass, pristine driveways, etc. Pumping over these areas is much cleaner and cause less damage than running wheel barrows. Typical uses include backyard pools, patios and sport courts.
How far can you pump concrete?
We can pump concrete up to 1,000 feet from the location of our trailer pump to the location of the pour.
Can you pump concrete into an area with very limited access?
Yes, just give us a five or six inch opening and we can place our hose through the opening and pump into any area with that small of an access.
How much can you deliver?
We can pump as much as 70 yards per hour per pump. If you need more concrete, we can deploy more than one pump to meet your needs.
What is your service area?
We serve the entire Houston Metro Area and to the Galveston area. Just call us at (409) 795-1366 to arrange for line pumping (often called ground pumping).
Does your pump interfere with power lines?
If there are power lines, we can use our line pump which uses a hose which lays on the ground. It is the ideal solution where power lines would interfere with a boom truck.
