Concrete Pumping FAQs

A concrete pump works to move wet concrete from a concrete mixer to the location of your pouring area. As the concrete leaves the mixer, it goes into a hopper where it flows through the system and arrives in the right location.

There are many reasons why concrete pumping may be needed. Some of these reasons include:

  • When you can’t get your mixer close enough to the area
  • If you are unable to wheelbarrow enough concrete in the time allocated
  • If you need concrete delivered inside a building area
  • If the site location is at height or on uneven ground
  • If you need a quick and mess-free solution

A concrete pump is a great solution if you are unable to wheelbarrow your concrete or if the access to your site is difficult. Our pumps can be extended to work even in the most difficult areas so that you can get the concrete you need, delivered easily.

There are many benefits to using a concrete pump, some of which include:

  • Faster delivery times
  • Extended areas of reach for difficult to access locations
  • Reducing costs with precision delivery
  • Less mess than other delivery methods

Yes! Our concrete pumping options can cover any sized job, no matter how small.

Pez concrete is pumped at 1m3 per minute, meaning that you can keep your build on track when you choose our service to help.

Here at Pez, we pump concrete all year round in all weather conditions. We can do this as we have the expertise needed to alter the mix so that it cures properly despite the temperature. However, you will need to ensure that the pour site is kept dry before we arrive so that it does not spoil the mix.
There are always exceptions to the rule, but you’ll be pleased to know that the majority of concrete can be pumped as long as we have designed the proportions in such a way that it can flow easily.

Liquid screed can be pumped with a specialist pump – contact us to discuss further.

Not at all – we are happy to provide concrete for any sized job – just let us know when you get in touch.

On the day of your pour, you will need to ensure that there is around 20m x 3m of parking space for us to work, and this needs to be on a hardstanding area. This will give us enough space to park the machines and set up the mixer.
No, in fact, it is one of the most cost-effective methods because we provide a metered service that means you only ever pay for what you use.
