you cann do this.

buy a boulder and drill a hole.

You'll need to buy a box from Aquabella.

http://www.aquabelladesigns.com/

Go to their site and find the button for the aquabox thing-a-ma-jig. They will ship anywhere in the united states, along with a pump and everything you need.

Absolutely you can. (and now for the arrogant side of me - had you clicked on the link that I set forth precious time to provide for you - you would see such a task is done ).

You do not use a regular drill. You use a hammer drill, that you rent. Your local rental company will have all sorts of bits available.
