I bought a granite countertop from Menards, my third. The countertop is supposed to allow for side faucets or a single center faucet. The other two countertops each had three holes tapped. This one had only the two side holes tapped. The center hole was partially cut from the underside. A label on top said "tap here." I assume they mean "rent a grinder if you don't have one and complete this hole"? Or..."take a hammer and whack at this point"? I'm sure there's an obvious explanation that escapes me. Please advise.
tap there with a hammer. it's probably undercut enough so the hole will drop out if needed.
sig: if this is a new economy, how come they still want my old-fashioned money?
Yup, just don't whale away at it. Tap means just that - tap. A few gentle taps right in that area and the plug should crack and pop right out.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Jaybee,
I'm wondering if you can return it for the one you want. At this point if you tap it and it breaks, your out of a counter top and the money. Plus you will have to buy another one.
It's a deliberate thing to accommodate different faucet styles in a stock top. The hole is cut almost all the way through, leaving only a thin skin on top in place. Just tap it gently and it will 'break' exactly where it is supposed to.
