RE: Self consolidating concrete (SCC)
Where did you find that video? The guy tries to act all scientific "A gallon of water weighs 8.34 pounds and here we have a pint weighing .9920 pounds when it should weigh 1.0425 pounds..."

Whatever... When you start measuring water for your 1500 yard pours using a plastic paint pail from Home Depot let me know....

And Mr. Scientific didn't give us his altitude or the specific gravity of his water either. Water at 10,000 feet weighs differently than water at sea level. Salt water weighs more than distilled water. What is his water?

And who's to say that his Fisher Price scale is accurate? That thing could be FUBAR.

I guess the idea is if you want to make concrete samples of 12 pound batches, weight them out to the 10,000ths of a pound for the best results.Dodgy
