What to do about rainwater trapped inside my sub-slab build up?
I have been losing a little sleep over my preparations for pouring a slab. I got 6-mil poly laid, 3″ of xps and wire mesh on top middle of last week when it was in the 70s, called for inspection and then called off the scheduled pour the next day because temps suddenly dropped into the 20s as this cold/snowy/rainy spell blew in to the mid-Atlantic. Now rain/melted-snow/sleet is puddling underneath the xps on the poly. I feel like this could be a problem, but I don’t really want to pull all of my 100 sheets of xps fitted around and over plumbing and electric piping. The water is trapped between air and vapor barriers (poly below, xps and concrete above) with nowhere to go. Ugggg. Am I silly to worry or silly not to spend a full day dismantling and reinstalling all the sub slab build-up once the sun comes out and it warms up?
