Self Leveling

Flow Fill is poured as a virtual liquid.  The material will be self leveling.  Here is a video produced by a concrete block company which shows flowfill being poured in a trench to be used as a base for a concrete block wall.  You can see it is self leveling.  You can see it is extremely fast and easy compared to placing base rock in the trench and then compacting and leveling the base rock over a 40 or 50 foot long trench.

No Compaction Required

Even though flow fill is poured as a virtual liquid, it sets up hard in just a few hours.  It can be paved over at that time.  Because no compaction is required, there are a number of benefits.  First, trenches can be more narrow.  Trench width is driven wider to accommodate the width of compaction equipment.  With no compaction needed, then there are no workers require to run and support compaction equipment.  There is no time set aside for compaction.  Jobs are faster, safer and done better.

Flow Fill Used As Road Base

The big problems with placing gravel road base over utility repairs under road ways it that the gravel will eventually settle no matter how much compaction you do.  The solution it to place flow fill over the utility work done under existing roads.  Flow fill is hard enough that it will never settle.  It is also excavatable if it ever needs to be.  Because flow fill never settles, the overall costs for the project will be lower.  The job will never need to be redone.

Here the utility trench has been partially filled with sand.  We are now starting to pour flow fill over the top of the sand and under the road surface.

The second photo shows the trench has been fully filled up to the road surface level. This section of the road will never settle.

The other benefits include no workers in the trench improving safety.  No compaction equipment in the trench with greatly lowers the cost of the job.
