Coring Through Our Concrete – Day 1

After confirming the location of our PEX in the concrete, we started coring through the penetrations today.  As before, we had Penhall Company send a technician to do the coring.

The penetrations are for water supply (hot and cold), drains, drain vents, air ducts, hydronic heating/cooling (supply and return), and electrical wiring.  The holes (penetrations) range in size from 1-1/4 inch through to 5 inches.

We completed more than half of the penetrations today.  We will complete the coring tomorrow.
