Covered basement drain
I did not even notice or paid attention to this before.
My initial thoughts were the previous owner might have experience a backflow or smell. But I asked my neighbor and he said he never had those issues and confirmed also not a builder change.
I already have a contractor lined up to have it reopened. However I just wanted to see if anyone has experienced this and what might be the reason for cover up??
Also I tried to asked the previous owner but of course they fell off the planet.
