Went to Home Depo and all they had (here in Mexico....not duckpond U.S.) at the local Mexican Home Depo were 1/4 or 6 milimmiter mm wall sonotubes that are way too thin.
So what to do??
I purchased a three metter sonotube that was 45 centimeteres in diameter and cut it to two meteres and twenty centimerteres.
Then I purchased a 50 cm diameter sonotube that was also 6mm thickness and also cut it to 2 meteres twenty centimeteres.
My next step is to purchase MDF 21mm or 3/4 inches and with the router create two circles with one being 45 cm and a second circle being 50 cm.
Then I will place the 45 cm sonotube on the 45 cm cutout on the mdf and glue in place and then place the 50 cm sonotube on the 50 cm cutout and glue in place.
But I hear you say that the sonotubes are just way too thin and will flex too much......yep.
Fill the gap with concrete.
50 cm minus 45 cm equals 5cm divided by two to get a 2.5 cm gap in the entire cimcumference.
That gap is either going to be filled with concete or perhaps the folks that know more than I do here on AVS can provide a better alternative??
Oh and pictures tomorrow of at least a one pipe 45 cm and one pipe 50 cm with hopefully the mdf gaps routed by then and ready for pictures.
Thanks for reading.
DIY beats store purchased.
