    I'm looking to put flooring on my concrete floor in the basement.

    I am hoping I could fill this hole in the concrete floor with concrete. Currently the hole is covered with a wooden slab.

    I have a basement waterproofing system with French drains and a sump pump in a different area of the basement. Water in my basement is non existant.

    My house was built in 1950. There is a washer and dryer near by, but the washer has a direct connection to sewer, and from what I can see nothing drains into this hole.

    My basement also has a bathroom with a grinder pump in a different area that also goes to the sewer.

    My question is, can I fill this hole with concrete? Bottom of hole is dirt.

    Should be fine as long as you don't forget about some heat-insulating element on top of concrete.
