    5/8 inch drill bit for blue-white flowmeter

    Largest "regular" drill bit I have is half inch and that's the largest one at HD. What did you use to drill the 5/8 inch hole the flowmeter requires?

    A spade bit should work. They are readily available up to 1.5" or so.

    Harbor Freight doesn't have a set that goes down as small as 5/8.

    I have two sets of them that go down to 1/2". Maybe every store doesn't stock them.
