I have french drains in my basement but would like to still paint or seal my floors. I was told I could not use Epoxy. What can I use?

I would like to seal up my dungeon like basement. I plan to use drylok on the stone walls but I am stuck as to what to do with my floors. They are concrete and have french drains all around. They arent in terrible condition- some pot holes and cracks- but they are very old and dirty looking. I would have loved to try the epoxy garage floor coating but was told not to with french drains. Am I stuck with just using a high gloss paint? help! :)

Jessica,

French drains provide a place for soil moisture to collect and be removed under the slab. Patching and sealing the slab with epoxy should not affect the french drains.
