Thanks! :-) The guy sold it to me for $75. I would have gladly paid more for such a fine machine. We repainted it and put new grips on it. The motor sounds great and it runs quite smooth. It saves so much time! I now have over 2,000 sqft of washable floors in the house and with 4 dogs, that machine saves hours of work. The gunk I would have had to soak off or scrub on my hands and knees just gets lifted right off with the machine.

Thanks again
Jamie

I would suggest Allure product for your situation. But use the original, its easier to install. If you need to level the floor try a product (it in a red colored bag, 50lbs), called Levelquick. Self-seeking leveler, but make sure use a wood block or something if you need to "stop" it because it will just keep going and going. (oh, Allure is found in Home Depot) It's water-proof, durable, resilient too. Good for a busy family. Read directions to install. No underlayment needed, do not glue it, it's a floating floor. Make sure you leave about 1/8" space near walls, etc, otherwise it will buckle or separate. Halstead makes it for Trafficmaster, look for Customer Service number for further questions.

Be careful of this product. It's a dumbed down version of the better quality Konecto products solde through flooring stores. Also, on self leveling products such as Levelquik or Ardex, the product does have to be moved around to seek it's level. You can't just pour it out and be done with it. Best bet is to get advise from floor covering stores, not the big boxes. You get what you pay for.

Just thought I would give an idea for another possible flooring solution. Have you considered acid staining the concrete? This is cheaper than most any flooring type, will not require leveling, is probably more durable than any other type of flooring, and it can be scored to look like expensive tile or stone. Anyway, just something to consider.
