Re: Sump pit cover - To seal with my subfloor
Rubber seal for windows or doors is what I had in mind when I wrote about a rubber gasket, though as VioletVenom said, I'd rather have a small gap. The gap doesn't have to be unseen, I mean for sure with the way the vinyl planks will be cut, it will be visible... unless the vinyl planks go out further than the panel in an uneven way hmm that gave me an idea for aesthetics...
the weather stripping tape is another idea but then those things aren't made to last and are only made to seal gaps under the sticky side. They don't form a seal when their back (non-sticky) sides are against each others. Though there is almost no avoiding having a small leak in there but the idea is to make it as air tight as possible without going nuts
