Not sure if that pad will be strong enough for the AC unit!  Much better than those styrofoam pads they pass off for a base!

Ready for the new tank slab. Might be a bit overkill, 6" thick with 1/2"rebar & mesh.

20 - 80 lb bags of high strength concrete mix. I'm borrowing a mixer in the am and hopefully get it poured before the rain comes.

 

Dang, just seen this post.  Wow, 1600lbs of concrete.......yeah, that oughta do it, or just sit the AC unit elsewhere & park your truck there!  :smilewink:

One of the many reasons to love our resident electrician. Overkill. (that, and really crappy aim with a pair of forks)

AC was moved to a new location.

This slab is for a 275 gallon fuel oil tank.

Oh yes, I forgot this was for an oil tank.  Still more than needed, but definitely won't be something you have to worry whether it will hold up or not....as it'll do very well!

One way to move a 275 gallon tank alone. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1410901896.144808.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1410901911.041906.jpg

It was empty of course.

Only a few little scuffs. Mostly from the 36" pipe wrench when trying to get the old 2" nipple out. It was rusted in pretty good. I would have left it, but the fill thing and the 2 x 3/8" reducer had to be switched. It was set up opposite of what I needed.

Tank is dated 2008 and the epoxy coating is still like new.

I bought a Tiger loop thing today that John@Relible told me about last year when I bought the tank.

Way to go rather then running a return line back to the tank. Plus it has a built in spin on filter.
Before I bought this house I didn't know a thing about oil heat. I'm still learning.

Was going to convert to natural gas, BUT they never got back to me about bringing the main a few hundred feet to my house from down the street.
It's all around me except for 3 houses besides mine.

O well, unless my oil burner needs major something, I'll be staying with oil.
