water in basement bathroom?
My basement had a half-bath (sink and toilet).
The floor of the bathroom was raised 2 inches off the concrete by some 2x4's and plywood.
When the rain was VERY heavy we would get some water coming out from under the bathrooms raised floor.
I ripped up the floor and found mold growing on both the 2x4s and the plywood, and the obvious source of the problem was in the area of the toilet.
I think, the water may have been coming from between the toilets drain pipe and the concrete floor, as the water table raised.
We have not had any other water issues while we lived here (3 years).
I was thinking to solve this issue I would lay down some caulking around the toilet drain. Then put in a floor consisting of insofast pannels, a sheet a plywood, and tiles.
Any thoughts on how effective this approach might be?
Or any other ideas about how to stop the water, from coming into the basement?
