If you use too much water and flood the platen

If too much water is applied, you’ll risk overflow and flooding the platen. Liquid can seep underneath the rubber (or glass) pad and start slipping, and that’s a risk you want to avoid at all costs. Thankfully, today’s quality polishing machines have plates that lock to prevent the pads from spinning, regardless of how much water seeps underneath the pad. In that case, excessive water use won’t hurt your process – if you lock the plate – but it is messier and takes more time to clean between polishing steps.
