Thread: retro fit corian countertop

  1. #1

    Default retro fit corian countertop

    I am retrofitting my kitchen sink with an under sink water filter system. I will need to have a hole drilled into my corian countertop and possibly the inlaid sink to install the water dispenser at the faucet level(it has a circular base). Is this something that a general plummer can do? Or can a do it your selfer do this with the right drill equipment? What drill would you suggest?

    For what it's worth, when our Corian countertops were intalled, the installer used an ordinary hole saw to cut the holes for the faucet and air-gap. Looked pretty simple, as long as you drill in the right place. The good thing about Corian is that repairs are possible and are barely noticeable.

    Drilling Corian is just like drilling wood. So, if you are comfortable with wood then you should be fine.

    Just remember - measure twice - cut once.... while repairs are possible, the service call is outrageous for patching an "oops"....
