This is a follow up question to my previous question about leveling a basement floor without losing the drainage. After the feedback I decided to use self-leveling concrete and cut (or form it in advance) grooves (canals?) that lead to the existing drain.
I just found that I received an answer with the same idea. But I'd like to elaborate more. For example:
Is it necessary to redo the drain or can I just leave it lower, perhaps by just adding another grill on top?
Can I use forms, for example pieces of wood that go all directions (like rays) from the drain?
Or is the best idea to use a screw driver like Justin Kuhs suggests in his answer to me? (BTW, Justin, thanks a lot for your answer, I didn't think of the screw driver at all, great idea!)
Have people here done such things? What were your experiences?
