 cuttng concrete for sump pump
Author: Spry333 (PA)

HI i want to put a sump pump in my basement and was wondering what the best way to cut through the floor was. I believe its 6" poured concrete. Not sure if it has rebar etc in it. Ive got a jackhammer, exothermic torch, and a 14" gas demo saw (which i dont think will work but just in case). thanks

I have always used a Concrete Cutting and Coring company. Done fast and they break up hall away the old concrete.
