Question

DriCore question


I've been trying to do my basement floor with dricore... it's a very level floor as it is, maybe an 1/8" drop here and there... relatively new house... but as I put it in, it is all level as I shimmed it up where it needed it, but after getting 3/4ths the floor done, there are about 2 spots that have some spring to them, when I step on them they drop down a tiny bit... my question is how much spring should a modular sub floor like this have? or should it be relatively sold when leveled out correctly?

and when you level the floor do you weight it down to look for this spring? When I was installing it, I found it hard to tell if it was touching the concrete well or not, and using my 4ft level I just checked to see if it was level across pannels horizontally and vertically...

as I made a mistake in my size calculation (forgot they are not exactly 24inch square.... I'm going to be taking it it apart so I can change the first row to be shorter so my last row is more then 6 inches wide (like dricore specifies) and I'd love to make sure I am leveling this correctly... thanks for the help!
