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.

It should be pointed out that mold can live on grout though. Not to discourage you from attacking the problem this way, but there are sumps that run on your home's water pressure.

Hell our new bathroom has two floor drains in it. Nice looking brushed stainless square drains with the tile cut to them...

Long story as to why lol.

I didn't know that. What brand of sumps do this? It still won't make me put carpet there.

I will. I just want to know of any issues with putting tile on a basement floor. There will be moisture and I want to know how a particular installation deals with it.

They put down a plastic sheet before they pour the base on it.

Basements will always flood. Find a pro who has done many, and get references. Go look at the the jobs.

I have something called the water commander backup sump which runs on water pressure. Cant say how well it works because my sump has never failed. Actually my sump hasn't kicked on in two years or more.
