question, did they FULLY plug each rod hole w/mortar, hydraulic cement, just wondering cuz it’s kind of important eh
5:35… says, ‘We have one opportunity, one chance to get this correct etc’
then he says, plastic mat… ‘we’ve relieved the PRESSURE’… no you, the plastic mat, didn’t lol
I see they backfilled with maybe 3’ ish of stone, okay, better than most… but ya still pushed in 3’ ish of crap soil. The crap soil will settle, there will still be PRESSURE against these walls., not as much as others because at least they backfilled with some 'stone. that helps reduce weight/pressure, does not RELIEVE most-all pressure as he said. lol just saying.
Why not backfill with most-all gravel, then you’d relieve more pressure… REMEMBER you have one chance to get this right… RIGHT?
Why not apply 2-3 coats of your ‘stuff’, that imo is a thin application and THAT is more important than the black mat
