My wet saw is designed for cutting regular ceramic tile. Can I use this to cut SnapStone® porcelain tiles?

The water pump on my wet saw gets clogged easily when cutting the tile. Is there anything I can do to prevent this?
The shavings from the tray will clog the pump on a wet saw if the water isn't changed frequently. The best way to combat this is by changing the water in the saw when tray shavings accumulate, approximately every 30-40 cuts. The shavings from the tray will float so you can easily see them.

What is the best way to cut around a vent?
If more than one tile is involved, you should be able to measure and mark your tiles easily, cutting with an angle grinder or wet saw. If, however, the required cut falls inside a tile and you can't cut from the edges, you must make a "plunge-cut" in the middle of the tile.
