These are not intended for large amounts of water. they are intended to provide an air path for moisture that wicks through the concrete, to try to mitigate mold growth.

to clarify, even a "small water leak" as the Dri-core company claims that dri-core subfloor is to protect against is very misleading.wstewart wrote: ↑ These are not intended for large amounts of water. they are intended to provide an air path for moisture that wicks through the concrete, to try to mitigate mold growth.
these do not provide significant thermal barrier / warming from the concrete floor. My entire basement is done with this and floors feel cold-ish. Use a thicker floor with foam insulation if you have the headroom. I didn't so I had to use these panels.

If you do get a bad flood - chances are the water will be higher than the dri-core & your floor combined. This will render the dri-core & floor useless. You'll need to rip both out, make sure everything is dry underneath and install new. This is the only way to ensure no mold growth..........
But if you are installing because of warmth, uneven foundation - then this will do............a bit expensive but this will do.
Another option is to look at DMX 1step........cheaper I think......

The poster you responded to didn't say anything about a leak. It helps with MOISTURE by allowing some airflow.ji2o0k wrote: ↑ to clarify, even a "small water leak" as the Dri-core company claims that dri-core subfloor is to protect against is very misleading.
You get a leak (big or small) - you aren't going to leave it and hope that the "air-gap" between the concrete, dri-core and your floor will be dry even after using blowers. That is what I meant about thinking Dri-core will save your floor and prevent any remediation after you had a leak (small or big).
You'll remove the floor and the Dri-core to ensure everything is dry underneath and no mold growth.
