I've done some searching on the forum, but not really finding answers to my questions. I just purchased my first safety cover (GLI ProMesh) and I'm getting ready to install it. Let me know your thoughts on the questions below.
Should I drill the hole deep enough for the anchor (~ 2") or drill all the way through the concrete pad? I have heard drilling all the way through is better for drainage and keeping debris out.
Should I use carbide vs diamond tip drill bits?
Should I drill a small pilot hole first or just drill once with proper size?
Should I install center straps first, then go out from there or start with corners and work in?
Thanks for any information you can provide.
