Hi I'm not sure this is in the right category but in my basement floor there was a hole drilled in it about the size of a pencil. It is no where near the laundry room sump pump or shower, just close to an outside wall on the other side of the room. Any idea why it's there or is it ok to fill it in?
1. Someone was drilling something set on the floor and marred the floor because the drill went too far.
2. The hole was meant to hold a stud that in turn kept a piece of furniture or an appliance in place.
3. The hole was used to drain a very small or very slow water flow such as from a dehumdifier (assuming the hole goes all the way through the floor slab).
4. The hole was left over from a spacer bar or a stray nail in the forms used when the slab was poured.
The good conscientious technician or serviceperson will carry extra oils and lubricants in case the new pump did not come with oil or the oil was accidentally spilled, so the service call can be completed without an extra visit.
