What type of drill bit can be used to cut-in holes on ceramic for wall/shower plumbing? I Need to cut holes in ceramic tile for pedestal sink plumbing and shower components. Can a Rotozip be used? If so, what bit? Any info you can pass along would be great. Thanks!

You can use a Rotozip with a tile bit, but it is tough going through ceramic tile. I would suggest a diamond hole saw on a variable speed 4.5-inch angle grinder. It is not a cheap set up but it will work on tile, stone, concrete and just about anything that is rock like. You can rent these bits from most tool rental places and it will make for a very nice clean hole.
