Example of a half height grout pour for a home built with the Mikey Block system.

They are pouring only a five foot lift for several reasons. Note the amount and type of bracing used, which is simply sections of unistrut. Look at the rolling scaffold and how easily and quickly they move along the wall. Note the use of an inexpensive trailer pumping service. This pour was completed in less than an hour from the arrival of the pumper until his departure. The day after this pour, the rolling scaffold is raised, the remaining courses are stacked, the same bracing is moved up and another expedient pour completes the project.

Compare this process to some of the other videos on YouTube. In those videos, note the elaborate scaffolding, which is expensive, takes time to erect, time to take down and, in many cases, is not reusable. Note the use of boom trucks for those pours. Boom trucks are expensive, as is additional billing time if there are delays. Consider also the potential for blowouts, which increases exponentially as the wall height increases. Sure, pros can pour 15' walls in one lift, but this method works very well and makes a lot of sense both for DIY-ers and professionals.
