Marine Berber carpet in wet basement?

Posted by eoren1 (My Page) on

We are finishing a basement in an area with a high water table. Have two sumps in a pit and put in DriCore over the cement floor. Made it through the last 3 day rain storm without a drop of water in the basement (while other homes in the area had water in theirs).
Was debating berber carpet (without pad) on the DriCore vs Armstrong Luxe Plank (floating vinyl floor). Now I'm thinking of the marine Berber carpets (link below). Anyone with thoughts on a decent flooring option for this situation?

Here is a link that might be useful: Link to marine Berber
