    Never mind. I was reading on THR, sounds like a lot of work on a regular slab. And very dangerous on a Post Tension Slab

    Youre good man, just get a masonry bit and go to town. No worries.

    With a post tension slab?
    I thought most homes had the simple cement/rebar setup?

    I have a slab in the basement and a cast concrete foundation - I'll probably be doing this also in the future.
