    Inheriting reverse sloped floor drains

    We’re taking over a warehouse that had concrete floor drains installed eons ago. Magically, in spite of being internally sloped, they were laid in a concrete floor that, either through incompetence or settling, is now sloped away from the drain.

    My question is about resolving this issue by pouring/molding a new drain floor using epoxy or urethane or concrete to create a high spot at the back of the drain so it slopes to the outlet. Has anyone tried this? Is there a good way to do this? I’m trying to avoid jackhammering them out and relaying them. It’ll just be a cellar, no brew house, so I just need them to drain properly and handle temp swings and chemicals. Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

    How badly sloped away from the drain are they? I'm thinking floor jacking... Advertising Supporter
