    Could anyone let me know if they know where I can get Shutcon Concrete Blocks from. I have asked at all major Builders Merchants and searched on Google but nothing. They are normally used for building swimming pools. I have contacted a swimming pool company and he says that he can buy them but won't tell me where. The blocks are a double skinned block, the two skins are held together with wire, once laid the centre is filled with concrete.

    Thanks in advance

    ...Or you could use a 9 " hollow block and put reinforcing bars into the holes before filling with concrete. The advantage is bound to be the cost and availability.If you really want to be extravagant, use 2 course of 6" hollows with cavity and tie between each course, then fill the cavity and, again using re-bar, concrete in the holes.

    That's a pity, we had 3000 Shutcon blocks left over from a cancelled job last week. Yesterday they were all put through our crusher for hardcore.

    Never mind eh.
