Need more help with pole barn footings
I am stumped at what to do! As I stated in my other post, I hit water while digging footing holes for a polebarn. Digging down 4′ would end up with 2′ of water in the bottom of the hole pretty quickly. I put some stone in a couple holes and put 55 gallon drums in the holes and backfilled as a test. Well with yesterdays all day rain the water table must of come up, and the water pushed the barrels out of the ground. I know a barrel is pretty light and easy to float it since it still had the bottom on, but I am concerned about doing the footings right. How do I make a footing that will not be susceptible to being pushed out of the ground? I assume a concrete footing could be pushed up the same as the barrel. I am at a loss here, any help would be appreciated.
