How to drill concrete for sump pump hose?

Post by dknight524 »

I'm in deed of some advice on tools to use for concrete drilling. Our old house, 1726, has a decent dump pump, but the previous owners ran the pump hose into the sewer pipe, a big no-no and certainly not to code. I'm in the process of figuring out the best place to run the hose to the exterior of the home, and it looks to be out the back of the house. The front part of the foundation is the original 1700s stone work, but its too far to run it there. The back part of the foundation is newer, and is poured concrete. I'd like to run it through the crawl space and out the back, through this poured foundation, since it will better drain down hill and into the street, away from the house. The problem is, when I look up concrete coring drill bits, they don't look like they mount on any drill I've ever seen. What kind of power tool would I use to mount the corer and drill the poured foundation? Hopefully they are not too expensive. Finally, are dry corers good enough to use? Thanks!
