Think I have made it clear that the sensation was not of skidding with tires screeching or anything. It was a gradual roll down the slope feeling with brakes floored.
Yes, I thought you had made that clear too.

Given that, even the tire condition is not really relevant. Bald tires may skid; they will not affect the brakes as you describe.

cleaning the brakes may have helped. You could try quickly pumping the brakes next time. But this would just help in removing water. If the wheels continued to roll, its not hydroplaning.

2 years? Have you changed brake fluid? Excellent discussion going on here which is highly relevant.

Not sure if you got ABS.

If you don't, you need to learn how to pump your breaks to prevent locking up.
