Basement flooring

I know there are professionals on this site that deal with this sort of thing.

My sump pump failed for a 2nd time last year in my finished basement and the carpeting that was there is gone. I no longer want anything that can mold or mildew and I was thinking about a decent tile that might work. My question: Is this a practical idea with a slab that has imperfections AND floor drains? Can a really good pro work around the drains and make it look good? I'm not talking about the vinyl tile BS, but real tiles that can be cut and shaped.

They also have some new backer that is water proof on both sides. Is supposed to work great.

And they will have to level out the imperfections too

I also suggest a battery backup with pump. I have one.

It will pump for 7 days on cycle and three days continuous.

It has kicked in a few times. never had an issue.

a pump installer should be able to do it,
