The tile seems to work best as you have stated... we had 6 inches of water in our walk out basement in 2008 ...... some grey water too.....it came in and receeded again in about 3 hours.... I laid a large amount of bleach water down on the tile to let it seep into any cracks and let it dry out and repeated the process a few more times....

I dont really even know if this was necessary but Bleach is dirt cheap and it kills everything dead .......

and the 12x12 tile survived just fine.......

The best I have seen is the clear drylok paint. Many people around here have patios, summer rooms, porches, and occasionally basements with slate flooring covered in clear drylok paint. The white paint is good too.



Covering the walls or floor in a basement is usually not a good idea because it will trap and hold moisture. The walls/floor just stay so cool they condensate and never dry when you cover them with something. Even the fancy houses we do that have 2 or 4 inches of polystyrene foam preventing contact with the soil. Insulation does not stop heat transfer it only slows it down. Just like a flow restrictor does not limit the ultimate pressure when the flow slows enough or stops.

yeah, thats why dehumidifiers were built...once you dry the moisture in a sealed basement it wont come back, or not for a long time...
I sealed my old brick foundation and cement floor with drylock and started getting water running down the walls, it was just condensation, a few weeks with a dehumidifier and the basement was dry as could be...
