Pour Watch: When placing concrete, between the concrete hoses being dragged and concrete hitting the deck it can get a little rough on the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) rough ins. Thus, the MEP trades always has a “pour watch”. Their job is to inspect the conduit for any damage; if any conduit breaks while placing concrete, it must be repaired immediately. A broken conduit in a concrete deck is never a good thing especially when it comes time to pulling wire. That’s why the “pour watch” job is an important part of the pour.
