Hole in Curb

I am running a pipe from my pool to the curb so i can get rid of waste water.
I am going to be running 2 inch pvc under the ground. 2 questions

Any tips on how to get pipe under sidewalk. and i need to cut a round hole in curb. any tips on how to make the hole without damaging it to bad. I have a rotary hammer drill with all different kinds of masonary bits and chisel bits any tips for me?

Only one tip: Check with the city to see if you're allowed to do it first. Beats getting a large fine.

Dig a pit and drive or just jet the pipe under with water.

Cut out a section, sleeve your pipe and repair.

If i do it how you recommond how will it look when its done. The curbs in my area are pretty new and are in pretty good shape.

do you think i will be able to cut out a somewhat round hole at the bottom of the curb without damaging any surrounding area. I have a hammerdrill with masonary bits and chisel bits?

Hole in Curb

The chances are the city owns the curb or at least controls it. I would talk to them to see what is possible.

If am sure your situation is not the first and they may be able to make detailed suggestions of what has been approved previously. That what you ultimately will have to match.

You'd be safer with the local municipality to just run the pipe out to the property line and let the water run over land from there on, if your slope/landscape lends itself to that option. If you're using chlorine (rather than salt) in your pool water, the water will be good for the grass (in fact I find that the chlorine helps control some pests like cinchbugs and the water helps keep the grass greener).
