The tough part of placing rebar in a floating slab is that you really don’t know whether the rebar should be in the top half of the slab or the bottom half. Bottom half is typical, but you really don’t know if the slab will end up settling concave or convex.

I’ve been spraying it down with water a few times every day. This stuff is thirsty, and just keeps sucking in the water as fast as I can spray it down.
