I have a 6 foot chain link fence. The end posts that come up to my house are set in concrete and do not move at the base but they still tend to wobble a bit near the top because of the height. I would like to know if filling the post up with concrete you be a good way to add more stability.

  • Can you tell if the post is bending, or if the footing is moving? Jun 25, 2016 at 1:01
  • It doesn't seem to be bending on it's own just when I grab it near the top it seems to bend fairly easily compared to other 4' fence I have. The footing seems stable.

    Filling the post with concrete should prevent the post from bending, but if it's the footing that's moving you won't see any benefit. Jun 25, 2016 at 1:35

That wont solve the problem. The best way to make a 'solid' fence post is to bury more into the ground.

Putting a cement ball at the bottom is not the best solution and filling the hollow cavity will do nothing to help
