Any advice on installing a tower and tap on granite

Any advice on installing a tower and tap on granite? I only get one chance at this so I don’t want to mess it up.

Measure twice, cut once. :lol:

Let the pro’s drill the hole… :wink:


It has to be done with a diamond drill bit and its typically mounted on a right angle grinder. Depending on the bit it can be drilled wet or dry. You would need one bit to drill the hole for the tubing and another bit to drill the holes for the mounting bolts. So yes, it’s a big +1 for having a stone shop do it for you considering the cost of the equipment and the learning curve not to mention the risk of the potential damage.

If you do decide to do it yourself make sure to clamp a piece of stone scrap to the underside of the countertop to keep the underside from chipping.
If you decide to use water, you can form a small dam around the work area using plumbers putty.
Make sure the diamond bits you are buying are high quality bits.

and when he shows up, let him know you will pour him a cold pint once the job is done. I’m sure that will put him on his best behavior…
