Can this product (50" foundation screw) also be used for fencing? I'm planning on rebuilding an old backyard fence which use a cement foundation and is a mess now.

Asked by: Tictac
You could, but it won't be very stable. It's more for decks where the pressure is mostly vertical. Fences are more about lateral movement (wind and lean). Best idea is for a fence is an 8" hole. Few inches of gravel at the bottom, I bag of concrete and fill the rest of the hole in gravel. Great drainage and it won't heave.

Does this product meet code for a proper deck support, also how does it get installed

Asked by: Blood Sweat and Tears Con
You screw it in the ground using a piece of dimensional lumber at the top to turn it. Longer lumber provides better torque, so take care not to snap it, dampen the soil if you need easier penetration. Regs - depends on the area you are in, check with your local building authority. In the Fraser Valley screw pile style fittings are an acceptable alternative to sonotubes, depending on the project. Decks below around 200sqft don't need building permits, bigger ones do.

What do you use to screwthis adaptor into the ground?

Asked by: Bozo1
Piece of lumber at the top of the shaft, the longer the better the torque.

À quelle distance doit-on poser ces pieux pour faire un patio ? Pour moi = patio de 10'X30' ? Merci.

Asked by: F6F6

What weight can each screw pile support? How do I drive them into the ground? Will they work to support a hot tub on a deck?

Could this be used in a swamp/wetland?

Foundation Screw - 50'' - Steel - Pylex - Black is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install Just put 4 of these in the ground. It works great as long as you don't hit any obstacles on the way down.
Date published: 2021-09-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product, super quick and easy to install. Would use again
Date published: 2020-09-05
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work I spent over 3 hrs on one of these and only got it 15" into the ground. What a waste of time!
Date published: 2019-10-13
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst product every Please don't believe the installation videos you see if this product. It looks easy in the video. I bought 4 of these hoping to go the "easy" route and avoid concrete footings . Instead after spending 2 days, I am taking these out and going with regular concrete footings. These just don't budge once you hit a rock and keep turning in place.
Date published: 2020-06-14
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good idea, poor execution Great idea to replace concrete footings but by the model with the adjustable head if you are gojng this route. Also by the stabilizer wings to keep the posts upright when sinking them other wise they are going in crooked. Good luck if you hit a rock! Returned them and when with the concrete deck blocks screening and adjustable inserts for the blocks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good foundation Better than concrete sonotubes. Use 3/8" rebar as pilot for screw to follow for precise location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast Great product, easy to use and a great time saver (about 5 mins per pile and you can work right after). But better installed with a partner so you can keep it much straighter.
