Forum Title: FloorMuffler, Do The Math
When ever I use floorMuffler I am always confused and distraught by the claims they make about superior moisture protection. I know we have some great mathmeticians here so this is what just freaks me out. The claim says; Provides Superior Moisture Protection. Exceeds industry standards by over 700%. (3lbs/1000sqft/24hours) But then on the back side of this paper insert on the roll, in the instructions it says; If installing over concrete, the concrete must be dry with moisture emission ratEs that do not exceed 3lbs. per 1000 square feet per 24 hours as measured by the Anhydrous Calcium Chloride Test. Now , how the hell is that 700% better than what? Most underlaymnents are made to that limit anyway. So again, if the industry standard is 3lbs/1000sf/24hours then how is it theirs is 700% better than that? Then require what? Six mil plastic under it like everyone else does? Am I going MAD??? LOL I think theres some fuzzy azz math going on here. Can someone explain?

Ill go right over concrete with floor muffler without vapor barrier. I suppose I should have done a little research before doing it but my sales rep who has pretty extensive flooring experience advised me against using addition vapor barrier.
