If you have a concrete floor in your basement or home, and you need to install new plumbing or electrical lines under or in your floor, you are going to need to cut a channel. You can do this on your own if you have the right supplies and protective gear.
Measure Off the Area
First, figure out where you want to put the channel on your floor. Consult your plans for the house and make sure that there are not already electrical or plumbing lines where you want to put the new lines.
