My appologies if this question has been asked before.
I watched This Old House last weekend where the show focused on a radon gas (spelling?) removal system. The installer said that most gases come from soil exposed from the foundation by way of cracks, holes or crawl spaces.
I plan to frame walls in my basement soon, and was wondering what the best method for securing them to the floor would be. Everyone that I've talked to mentions using anchors inside drilled holes on the floor in order to secure them. To prevent any possible gases, should these drilled holes be filled with some sort of epoxy or caulk? What is the recommended depth of drilling these holes? Are there any alternative methods to securing the frames to the floor?
