    Default Basement floor

    Does anyone have a recommendation regarding the type and number of bag mix of concrete best used to fill and finish a basement floor after having cut the original concrete floor to relocate DWV PVC?

    Thank you.

    Default concrete

    Bags of "pre mixed" concrete. Use a many as necessary for the hole size.

    It's best if you drill some holes and insert some rebar to anchor the new and old concrete together. A couple of stubs on each side of the hole and maybe more, depending on the size of the hole is a good idea to tie the old to the new.

    Measure the volume of concrete you'll need and buy the # of bags needs to fill that much volume.
