I have a pool equipmnet room that has dirt floor that always gets wet/muddy when draining filter housing, cleaning basket, etc.
Initially I though about taking out few inches of dirt and replacing it with course rock to facilitate some water holding space/depth and let the gravity do it's thing.
Now I'm thinking that perhaps I should be looking into some sort of raised floor (metal or plastic) system.
The area to be treated is probably 3'x15'.
Here is the best I can come up with not really knowing what I'm looking for: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=Grating
My other searches came up with antislip mats, and yoga mats, etc., which are obviously not what I need.
I'm envisioning forming perimeter of the flooring with with bricks, or angle iron bolted to my stem wall and placing the grates on top of it, creating raised floor where water/dirt can drain into.
If I ever need to get under the floor to remove buildup of dirt, I could simply pick up the grates, shovel some dirt out and replace the grates.
This has to be a common item in pool equipment rooms, indoor gardens, etc., right?
