How big are those drain holes? In the picture, they look the size of a dinner plate.
I'm planning on running 3 - 3" drains... like the first pic up top with the light circles, those are the true sizes as I have traced the pipe on the wall (cutting 4" holes) ;)

Thanks for following along!

Fun weekend with drilling for the drains and sealing this bad boy up with epoxy!!

I have been watching your build intently and this is extremely exciting!

A few questions:
1. Will you finish all epoxy cotes before you still the overflow holes?
2. Do you plan to epoxy the drilled holes just in case of any salt creep or leakage?

Thanks for checking it out!!

-I think we will drill the drains then do a second coat of epoxy!

-Yes we will epoxy into the holes a bit for good measure!
