Exclamation waterbourne polyurethane

I've heard that waterbourne polyurethane is becoming more popular because it can dry faster than oil-based polyurethane. Which do you think we should use...waterbourne or oil based? We are refinishing our oak floors (approx. 10 yrs. old) and we are renting a square sander from Home Depot...they also have an Orbitrol and Drum but they said the square was the best.

Types of floor finishes


Oil-based polyurethane is a very durable finish, smelly, takes longer to dry, and ambers as it ages.

Water-based polyurethane is durable, quick drying, nonyellowing, and not smelly like oil-based polyurethane.
