Is a 1ft hole too shallow for PA deck?

Posted by Lucky on July 18th, 1998 12:12 PM

I started digging holes for a deck next to my pool.
About a foot down I ran into concrete. Without more
excavation I can't be sure if it was a patio or is just
some kind of block. I know the frost line is 32 in my
area but there will only be 2 posts next to the pool and
the other 11 posts are not problematic and can be the
proper depth. Will just setting these 2 posts (7.5 feet
apart) on a 1 foot concrete pad be a problem? The next
set of posts is 7 ft away in case that matters. I know
I can break up the concrete with time and effort but
with the time I spent already on it, it would be much
easier just to pour the 1 foot hole...comments???
