    Hello...
    I have been looking for Sonotube for several weeks now and can't seem to find it in the sizes I need. I have found 12" but I'm looking for 16" or larger.
    Has anyone in the Austin TX area been able to locate 16" or larger?
    Thank you,
    Kent

    Have you tried looking under "concrete, hardware, contractor supplies" in the phone book?

    Yes, but all the places I have tried either don't have it or only cater to contractors.

    Did you ask the concrete contractor for any old tubes?
    You might have to try another city. It was a PITA to find my tubes but I found them.

    You can also try the Yahoo yellow pages to find concrete forms, etc. at various areas that may be relatively close but not in your local phone book. This is how I found a much cheaper dealer in KC than what was local. If you're still really desperate, I'll sell you a piece of 24" if you want to make the drive up here [​IMG] .

    Thank you for the help. I found a couple places that look promising. I will try them in the morning. Hopefully I'll be starting my sub sometime this weekend.
