I had another company come out for an estimate. They provide a 5-year warranty but not if I skip the concrete. They do not taper the concrete at the post either. Does anyone?

Yes, Pilot Dane - do I really need to use concrete? I have seen the crushed stone and like that idea.

I have a no-brand faucet that I believe has the cartridge - only turns 180 degrees. The faucet drips from the end spigot so I figure it's a ring. The faucet is at least 5 years old and still looks...
