Two Things....

In reply to Water in basement by Mark on February 2nd, 2002 06:36 AM [Go to top of thread]

If this were my project I would (1) make sure the basement is set up for a sump pump with a sump pit that is fed by drain tile completely around the INSIDE of the footings. (2) Put down 10 or 6 mil plastic over the sand or gravel prior to pouring the floor. This will prevent you from having a musty basement in the future. The plastic will make the concrete set up slower, so the mix may have to be adjusted for this so the finish troweler will work in a reasonable length of time.
Good Luck,
