New Member with a Sink question


I recently retired and I am trying to learn from this site how to do things myself. I just bought an Aquasana under sink water filter system. I have to drill a hole on top of the sink for the faucet. The video on their website showed someone doing it, but it did not say what the tool was. The part that touched the sink was round. Do they rent those somewhere or is it cheaper to buy one?

It's just a hole saw. It goes in the end of a drill. Depending on the material you're drilling through, you may need a different type. They're either for drilling wood, or tile/granite.

Make sure you read the directions first to figure out what size you need.

shouldn't be too expensive if it's a one time use, just get a cheapy throw away one.

Thanks Alan. I went to the Home Depot website and typed in "drills" and I finally found what I thought it was. Appreciate your response. You've heard of Mr. Mom, right? Well, I'm Mrs. Dad in our household!
