Adding laundry washing machine hose through concrete wall, equipment rental


Hey Guys,

Where I can rent equipment to do some plumbing work for the laundry? I need to put a hose through a concrete wall.

I think I need a hammer drill, where can I rent this?

Home Depot rents tools....and for the most part is a pretty good place to rent common tools as that.

But, if your doing just one hole....you might get by with just a concrete drill bit and your common drill. Sometimes on jobs like that, you spend more time chasing down the tools and returning them than the actual time the job takes.

A hammer drill will do the job in a couple of minutes....a masonry bit with your little drill might take 10-20 min....and that could be less time than the trip to HD.

Now, if you have a bunch of holes? Yea...rent the drill.

The washing machine should be draining into your inside plumbing drains not out through a wall.
Ok what are you really up to?
