So much jargon in here. I'm glad I can't afford a giant aquarium and have to worry about it.

Ya if you look at my build I didn't try to skimp in the re-enforcement division.

Sometimes life is best left to it's own devices.
If your not happy at what you're looking at, you're looking at it the wrong way.

also, P/f2 would refer to the punch through the flooring, and total weight has more bearing on the support structure. yeah, a 210lb guy could stand on a block no problem, but put six of them on six blocks standing in the middle of the floor.

not to mention, if the house was built just prior to the bubble, it may not be close to code.

If you place the stand on a heavy 3/4" slab of plywood, say 4' x 8' you will spread the load over 32 square feet. This may or may not be sufficient to spread the weight, depending upon the construction framing. As previously stated, if you are on a concrete slab on the ground floor you should not have to worry. Second-floor framing, however, is a different story. I would follow the architect's advice if you are on a second floor, or over a basement.
