leveling dips

linuxfox00August 13, 2012

my basement has a few puddles of water in it after the hard rain recently i don't know where it came in from but its nothing major i would like to know how about i should go about fixing it or what you.

there's several dips in it and would like the water to slope down into the floor drain.

You can use a self-levelling polymer modified cementious material for the low areas.

However, neither basement floors nor floor drains are designed to drain every single small puddle. If there's no slope at all, adding a new layer of concrete to an entire floor and sloping it can be done, but generally requires a professional.
