The mixture of cement, FINE aggregate (sand) and  coarse aggregate is called plain cement concrete (PCC)

 PCC is mainly used for following purposes

1. It is used as a protective layer for the RCC above so that water from the RCC is not absorbed by the earth below.

2. Provides a base for the concrete and also helps workers to set out the structure above in a easier way

3.act as a cover to reinforced cement concrete i.e. resist corrosion of steel bars in footings

4.moisture available in soil should not absorbed by R.C.C footings which causes corrosion of reinforcement

PCC was recently done at our residential site. 1/3 of the portion is still pending. The aggregate used was bigger than the one used in normal RCC.
Concerns:
1. They have left the bamboo used for water leveling in the concrete.
2. They coarsely leveled it used msand & cement mix.
3. Leveling is not proper (significantly).
4. The concrete is porous and the water seeps in very quickly.
5. The top layer of aggregate and coarse cement mix is parting out.
Kindly advise.
