To clarify, I just use water. No thinner. And this only works with latex paints. Oil paints will usually get tossed out. We hardly use oil in Canada anymore, so it's cheaper/easier to throw the brush...

Brush bucket!
I drill 2 holes in a 5 gallon pail and stick a medium gauge wire through. Dirty brushes go in one on side, and when I need to change colours I pull one off the other end.

What about an alkyd floor paint?

What's the condition of the floor like? New? Used? Any spills/stains on it?

What kind of sprayer are you using?
