I don't know whether to post this in here, or the building section. I went for this forum as I am guessing plumbers read this one and they regularly have to do this.
I've moved my washing machine in from a lean-to that we've demolished, into the kitchen. I've plumbed the water into the washing machine and I've specced out the waste pipes to the wall. Now I need to put a hole in the outside wall to get the waste pipe out of.
Has anyone got any tips for this? I bought a 20cm drill bit. But I've got to the end of the reach of it and its taking a long time to chisel out the brickwork!!!
The waste pipe diameter is surely 40mm, so 20mm is a waste of time.
If you know some one who has a drill and correct bit, it could be sorted in errrrr minutes!!
Thanks Steve, however, I bought a 20cm drill bit (as in the length, not girth)
I have borrowed one that is about 20inches now. So I can drill through and then chisel out the hole properly. There didn't appear to be drill bits that would drill a hole with a 40mm diameter on the market...
