There are a few different brands available, and they will be easier to use for the average person that needs to place forms for pillars or posts that have to support a deck or an overhang.

Brand | Model | Concrete Volume |

Bigfoot | BF20 | 1.75 ft³ |

Bigfoot | BFT10 | 2.18 ft³ |

Bigfoot | BF24 | 2.50 ft³ |

Bigfoot | BF28 | 3.25 ft³ |

Bigfoot | BF36 | 6.0 ft³ |

### Example of how to use this calculator:

4 big foot BF24 concrete forms with 10" diameter concrete tubes
BF24 = 2.5 ft³ - enter in field one of calculator 2.5
tube diameter = 10" - enter in field two of calculator 10
form 1 concrete tube height = 1' - 6"
form 2 concrete tube height = 2' - 1"
form 3 concrete tube height = 1' - 7"
form 4 concrete tube height = 2' - 4"
for a total height of 7' - 6" enter in field three of calculator 7 feet 6 inches
four forms used - enter in field four of calculator a 4
Result: you will need 14.09 ft³ of concrete

## Plastic Concrete Footing Forms

#### Calculation

- enter the volume of your concrete form in cubic feet
- diameter of the tube in inches
- height of tube(s) in feet and inches (for multiple forms add all individual height sections together)
- number of forms used

#### Results

- amount of concrete needed in cubic feet
- amount of concrete needed in cubic yards
- amount of concrete needed in cubic metres
