LVP how level does my floor need to be..

So i have already completely done my downstairs and i have a few (tappy) places but not many as most of my floor was level when i put my level on it with 1/8th in some places but not much more then that.

However the upstairs is a plywood floor and it has some changes going from down to up back down to up and ect across the house. it does have a few high spots where the boards meet but i do plan to sand those out and dont think their going to be much of an issue.

The problem im worried about is how it starts low and goes high then goes low again, some are 1/8 to 3/16 on the 6 foot level. should i be worried about that? do i need to self level the enitre floor because its doing this? any advice is greatly appreciated.

Your flooring instructions tell you how flat the floor should be. We dont know what product you are using, and you likely have instructions somewhere, right?

And yes, you will not only feel dips in the floor and also where the flooring is riding on a high point, but you will also eventually cause the tongue and groove to break apart if the floor isn't flat. You should only worry about it if you dont want all your work to go to waste.

Often if you have the manufacturer and the name of the flooring you can find the info on the net.

I tried to find it online and I couldn’t find anything. It’s called “Solix core deluxe” and the color pattern is valley mist

When information is that difficult to find then its a good indication its some cheap China made material that is of limited distribution. Better hope no issues you will never have any warranty coverage for it!

Yes sorry its solux core delux, and that product does look similar but it is not it. And yes @marq1 we had a freiend have this isntalled in his house 2 years ago and my girlfriend really liked it, and sense he said it had held up pretty well we went to the place he got it. However when we ordered it and talked about transitions and when they came in i realized we had already purchased a "inferior" product comparing it to others. none the less i think im just going to go ahead take some more time and completely level out the upstairs as much as i can.
