Putting holes in concrete blocks
Is there a better way to put a hole in concrete blocks for utility pipes etc. rather than just busting a rough hole in them?
Ideally, it would be great to be able to buy specialty blocks for this.
Something that gave an option of the hole being off center so when you reversed the block it would line up with the hole in front of it – as the two rows of blocks are off center to each other.
Also, are there any concerns, or important steps to take, once holes are made in this rough manner?
The blocks are used to build stem walls and filled with aggregate and concrete to create a slab.
