finishing a room in the basement


In a nutshell--to raise the drain----rent a chipping hammer (hand held jack hammer) --

Chip out enough concrete to expose enough of the pipe to glue on a coupling and another short section of pipe.---done---


Then you will need to fill in the low spot with a latex modified patching cement---trowel it out--Done--

That's the nut shell version---feathering in the cement when it is very thin may require a second type of patching compound---we will get all detailed if you choose to go this route.--Mike---

The drain is about the size of a shower stall drain. As far as dricore, it probably works good, but i'm sure is much more expensive than just leveling it off. Also, I think someone asked, there is a dump pump on the other side of the basement
That was "sump pump".
