How to Score Concrete and keep things clean


In the past, I've used a beater circular saw with either abrasive blades and or carbide blades and running water to score concrete prior to take a BFH (big f'en hammer) to it.


I'm looking to add a checkvalve to my sewer pipe.

Is there any other methods out there to MINIMIZE the dust generated ?

I'm ripping up the wood flooring as well, any borrowed my buddys circular saw which HAS a vac port on it.....so that should get 80% of the dust generated on the wood side.

You can't beat water for dust control, A shop vac will do an okay job.

I agree, use water but plug the cord into a GFI. If you have a diamond blade for the saw it will make life easy.
