How do you pour concrete around PVC pipe?

Not covered by, or under, but directly embedded ( concrete will fully encase 4ft of the pipe ).

  1. Pour a 2-inch thick layer of gravel over the base of the trench.
  2. Mix enough concrete to fill the area you require using water and "hydraulic" cement powder; prepare the mix in a large, plastic container.
  3. Install a closet flange around the PVC pipe to add structure and to provide an anchor.
