I have a safe that I am looking to bolt into my basement floor - specifically in my utility room (furnace, water heater, water softener).
My house was built in 1979 and I don't have the blueprints.
1) Is there any chance of me hitting pipes when drilling into the floor? Is piping normally run through a home's foundation?
2) Will 0.5" be enough to hold the safe done appropriately - would 1" be better? My thought is the shallower I drill, the smaller the chance of me hitting a pipe.
I'm a new homeowner and don't know if running piping through a foundation is even an issue.
