We add like a cup of Shark Grip to up to 5 gallons of sealer when we spray it, it doesn't take much.

I rarely use it though, most customers don't like the sugar cookie look.

I've always tried to do that, and every single time something breaks and I have to clean the whole thing out.

I'm hoping one of these years I can actually keep the coffers kind of full for awhile.

Some guys will still go place a 2000 sq ft floor for like $600/labor.
