sagging laminate

i recently installed laminate flooring in my home. i notices a low spot where the floor sags when you step on it. A friend told me to inject glue under it, is he right or is there something else i should do?

Don't apply any adhesive under laminate. It must expand and contract. Your floor was possibly not checked for the dip prior to installation. Using the foam underlayment, you will have a little cushion. Aside from removing the laminate, truing the floor and reinstalling it, there isn't much you can do.

Do you have access to the underside of the floor?

You might be able to jack it up and install some 2x's. Go easy with the jack.
