It sounds like you need a full lateral analysis to properly size the sonotube. I can do that as an additional service and I will need additional information.

Expert:  StructuralEng replied 1 year ago.

I will need the size of the camera, the pole you're using, the zip code, and the soul type

I'm not willing to pay more for this service. Its a pole base in the 60074. Soil Mud and clay
Expert:  StructuralEng replied 1 year ago.

I will opt out for you. Calculating the wind pressures and then doing the calculations for a pole footing are too time consuming. Good luck with your project

You will be sending a full refund?
Expert:  StructuralEng replied 1 year ago.

I already requested it for you
