im a carpenter and yesterday i was pining down bottom plates in a bathroom, i drilled trough the 2x6 with a hammer drill into the newer concrete which was softer than the 2x6 and realized i made a rookie mistake. the new plumbing was run right under the 2x6, now im stressing out because i dont know for sure if i would of even felt the pipe when i was drilling. what im thinking is that i would of felt the resistance seeing as the plumbing pipe is denser than the 2x6 and the concrete was softer than the 2x6. when i drilled through the 2x6 and into the concrete the drill bit went trough the concrete like butter because of how fresh it was. i just need to hear some thoughts on this before i go into work tomorrow and for me to decide if i should tell my boss now and risk my raise or wait and see what happens.
