Removing constant multiples from polynomials

I am working on an algorithm which manipulates sets of polynomials.
Often it produces (after an application of FullSimplify) polynomials


I'm only interested in the solutions to the polynomial, so to me this
is "equivalent" to:


As a short-term solution I call "GroebnerBasis" on the single
polynomial, which seems to perform this simplification. However is
there a simpler method?

Thank you,
