Rodding Granite Countertops

To rod, or not to rod? Some say it is a must, others say it is an option. However, if you ever have to replace a countertop because of a crack at the sink cut-out, you may forever believe it is the only way to go. Either way, there are times that rodding is a must, and here is a short video we found from Alpha Tools that shows a simple method for accomplishing this process.

We know there are a variety of systems and adhesives and even rods out there that can be used for this task, so if you have a different method or one you think is better, please comment on this video post and share your thoughts.
