          Fast drying, low smell
          The product is really easy to work with and has a smooth finish. The only problem I had was that the water based stain got pulled up with this sealer and made it look bad. This was more of a learning curve issue than a knock on the product. The first time I tried, it was really bad. I had to resand and restain, but after allowing for a much longer cure time for the stain (twice as long as recommended), I was able to reapply the polyurethane with good results.

            Didn't work for me.
            I tried this for the first time 6 weeks ago. I surface sanded the floor first with 150 grit paper on a Rigid random orbit sander. I put down 3 coats. It shows scratches all over. I've used Glitsa Infinity in the past with great results. Maybe I'm expecting better results than I should but Im going to sand this and use the Glitsa. Glitsa is a little more expensive but well worth it over this Parks product IMO.

            Thank you for reaching out! While it is essential that a minimum of 3 coats are applied. You also want to ensure that you are applying enough Rust-Oleum Parks Pro Finisher Water-Based Polyurethane for Floors for your square footage. Each gallon has a recommended coverage of 600-700 square feet with a single coat. Thinner coats can reduce the durability and protection.

              Amazing results!
              I applied 4 coats of satin finish to a newly installed, hand sanded, stained then sealed solid white oak floor following the instructions (with one minor exception) on the container and I couldn't be happier with the results! I've used this product before and I have been very pleased with its long term wear. The only thing I did differently from the instructions was to use a doodlebug manual scrubber with a brown pad to gently scuff the preceding coat surface prior to application of additional coats. No fumes, fast drying, easy to apply. I love it!

              Will update review over time!!
              Easy to apply, not so much on the recoat. It says to wait no more than 6 hours to recoat. After that you must scuff and clean before any further coats. In the reviews here the company has commented that no more than 2 coats should be applied in the same day. No where on the can says that. But I read it here so I applied the 2 coats, lightly sanded, scuffed cleaned and applied 2 more. So far it looks great! It’s also supposed to cure by day 7, but I’ll give it 10 before I move furniture in.

                I wish this worked like it did in the past.
                I used this poly twice in the past 4 years to seal my green painted kitchen floor. Unfortunately this time it went down much whiter than in the past and dried with a white milky film all over the entire floor. It was awful. I had to go buy more floor paint and do yet another coat over the messed up poly. I don’t know if something has changed, but it’s not good. Thankfully Home Depot was wonderful and gave me my money back so I didn’t have to fight with the company for it.

                This is not what we expect to hear, Emily! To ensure the best finish with Rust-Oleum Parks Pro Finisher Water-Based Polyurethane for Floors, it is essential that it is applied with a Pro Finisher Universal Applicator, Lambswool applicator pad, polyester brush, or a weighted T-bar. Make sure to apply thin coats in the direction of the grain. The previous finish also needs to be sanded to ensure full adhesion. We are happy to hear that the store was able to assist you further with this.

                  Used on birch plywood shelving with good results
                  Its made for flooring, but I used this on birch plywood shelving. I wanted a natural (light as possible) look that wouldn't make it look yellowed or ambered like so many urethanes. Its more like a sanding sealer in my opinion. I used 2 light coats using one of the synthetic sheepskin flooring aplicators and sanded between coats. Final coat was still pretty rough so I fine sanded again, then wiped it down with Endust (has a little lemon oil) and the shelves look great and should be protected and easy to wipe clean. It also looks very close to raw birch plywood color and only darkened maybe 10%

                  I use it on barnwood furniture.
                  Very easy to use and helps seal barn-wood furniture that I build. Work fast with it or you will lose track of where you started. Dries quickly and after proper curing time dries to a hard satiny finish. I brush it on with good quality bristle brush.

                    Not for dog homes
                    My floors are destroyed even after the recommended 3 coats. We have 3 dogs and this did not hold up to there nails. The dining chairs also scratched up the floor with pads on them. Very upset I will need to redo these floors again.

                    Let's see what we can figure out, Amber. Please keep in mind that the Rust-Oleum Parks Pro Finisher Water-based Polyurethane for Floors would be mostly dry after 48 hours and fully cures after 7 days. Keep in mind that no more than 2 coats should be applied in the same day. If more is applied, this can cause drying issues and significantly extend the dry time. We need to know more about your experience to get to the bottom of this. Please call us at 800-901-0411 to discuss further. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5 Rustoleum
