Rebar too close to the outside

Ca. concrete jungle
How about a hose? They were skeptical and didn't want to get a tremie or a hose stuck and lose that too.

Another foul as I could tell was that there was no vibration. My SOB provided a CalTrans report where they tested the fc of concrete that was dropped 150' with rebar cages. The concrete was not vibrated. The fc was greater than if it was placed gently and vibrated.
