bathroom is starting to take shape (finally!!!). we are learning, no doubt as all do, that renovating with kids around is very time consuming and disruptive. and, boy, do kids hate doing the rounds of bathroom supply shops!!! anyhoo, we have a lovely big bath and a fabulous round edge spout which is a bath mount, not wall mount. small problem, our lovely big bath does not have any holes for a spout. so, question is how does one drill acrylic without weakening the shell, causing cracks, or other disastrous problems? there will need to be three holes - large central with one on each side. the side holes i think must be to stabilise the spout so it doesn't spin once installed? the attached pdf shows the spout but doesn't include the two small holes on either side of the main hole.
