Should I install the spigot before or after the spray foam insulation?


My Sand cellar is being coated with foam. A spigot will be installed that will run through the cellar to the outside. Do I want a tight foam seam around that pipe (or pex, I'm not sure what's being used for it) or should I foam first then drill a tiny hole through the foam to install the spigot after - making it easier to access later if need be?

I would install the spigot first, you want to keep everything air sealed which foam does very well. You can always trim the foam later if you need to fix something.
