During the interior renovations may be necessary to drill holes for the heating or sewer pipes. The main tool for the job is a hammer drill or rotary hammer.
Drilling holes in the wall under the pipe
Before you start drilling it is necessary to conduct preparatory work. Remove all unnecessary things that may hinder you to perform this process. Also make sure that in the place where you plan to carry out drilling no wiring. For this you can use a screwdriver to clear the drill holes. Use personal protective equipment – goggles, gloves, and ear plugs.
Make razmeta on the wall in the exact place you are going to drill the hole.
Initially, you can use a thin drill bit or drill, to make a referral.
Then use a drill with a drill of the required diameter that fits the diameter of the pipe.
If you just start drilling drill, it’s easy to get off the mark. Do not allow to drill or punch overheat, so as not to bring the tool down. If you notice that the tool is severely overheated, wait until it cools down. This often happens when drilling concrete or brick walls of great thickness. In addition, if the wall thickness is large, then during drilling periodically in the operating mode to stick the drill from the hole to plaster and the remnants of the brick could also get out of the hole. Thus the drill does not jam. In addition, during drilling it is necessary to keep the drill straight in order not to leave aside. For example, if you made the distance from the wall 10 cm, and during drilling left side, then on the other hand can happen for 15 – cm from the wall.
Drill holes in the wall lined with tiles
If you need to drill a hole in the wall, which is lined with tiles, you must use special diamond drill bits for tiles. You must first drill a hole the right diameter in the tile, when he reached the brick masonry or concrete, and then with the punch and drill to continue drilling the wall.
During drilling tile drill bit will be hot, so to cool it can be put next to a container of water. If the back side of the wall is also tiled, it is important to carefully measure and to determine in what place there will be a drill. It is best not to destroy the masonry, carefully remove one tile.
