In the hole, but the spinning bit usually gets the water in there.

start with the top holes and not to get water into the lower already drilled holes.

I use a spray bottle. One shot every 5-10 seconds should work. I lay a towel on the floor underneath to soak up the water that runs down.

"use lots of water", like, physically pour water over while you are drilling?

EDIT: hehe, I see the meaning is given right above my post

To be clear on how much water is needed, understand this: heat is the mortal enemy of inexpensive electroplated diamond holesaws. If you use enough water to keep the bit cool enough that you can touch it when it comes out of the hole, you're doing very well. The bits will serve you with a reasonable service life under ideal conditions like this. But if you allow them to run dry or with minimal water and they get scalding hot, they'll wear out prematurely.

just remember if you have a surface membrane you will be drilling through it, here in the civilised world we dont let glaziers drill through tiles, any person drilling through the membrane voids the manufacturers warranty, Glaziers here use a strong silicone to stick their tracks on a couple of days before they fit the glass
