Can small holes (half in water pipe & toilet flange screw holes) be cut with a dremmel bit??

Probably not.

Avaire tile is a quality porcelain tile that may require a very aggressive type bit.

You may however be able to cut the necessary clearance with a diamond blade wet saw. You don't necessarily need a nice round hole in most cases. A "V" groove may work as well.

Journeyman is correct. I haven't had very much luck using a Dremmel tool to cut Avaire tile. An angle grinder with a diamond blade designed to cut porcelain tile dry will work better and most likely cost less money.

I used a rotozip with a PORCELAIN tile bit worked very well. The bit is kind of expensive approx. $40.00. I cut holes in 5 tile had no problem
