The result is almost like granite in feel!
I had an area just inside my garage that collected water. I am about to tile that garage and wanted to raise that low area. I mixed up the mixture and immediately poured it in place and then used a notched trowel to feather in the edges. I eventually grabbed a chip brush and that worked even better to feather in around the edges.
The bag instructions say to mix up the whole bag. Of course, that was way more product than I needed so I mixed up half of it. I immediately poured it in the low area and worked to feather the edges. The compound begins setting up in as little as five minutes, which helps get the cure time under four hours. If you plan on carrying a bucket around like mortar and hitting a bunch of low spots, you'll see the bucket go hard in under five minutes. Mix up batches for each area and you'll be fine. Remember to wash your tools off ASAP and the material will come off easily, even after it hardens up a tad.
I accidentally stepped on the edge of the area after an hour and my shoe left no mark. The hardened surface is amazingly solid and smooth, right out to the very edge. I had also ground off an epoxy paint a previous owner had painted outside my garage door on my garage slab. I feathered some leveling compound out there to give the slab a nice uniform appearance and it looks so good, I am doing the other door as well. This compound dries very dark and must have loads of Portland in it as well as polymer bonders that go hot only a few minutes after you stop mixing. I am sure its waterproof and it will help with water penetration through the shrinkage cracks outside the garage door.
USE: Have a trowel out and a 2 or 3" chip brush, work quickly after its mixed and you will be amazed with the result. Any questions, call Custom Tech Support and they'll answer any question you have. GREAT folks.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by markymark "seeks its own level" yea right
This product does not "self level" as the bag claims. You have to screed it or smooth it out flat yourself. If you don't flatten it perfectly with your tools, it will not level out perfectly on its own. I followed the instructions carefully and exactly. I used a trowel to do a rough spread of the slurry across the 5x5 bathroom floor at about 1/2" depth. At that point I was DEPENDING on the "SELF LEVELING" aspect of this product to do the rest, but it failed. I was left with new high and low spots. If a product says it "seeks it own level", why does the customer have to screed and trowel it out themselves perfectly. This is false advertising.

If you know or learn how to use this product you will have the best results ever. Read the instructions, watch a video or two on YouTube, use a powerful drill with a good mixing attachment, add the dry product to the water 1/4 at a time, mix throughly, move quickly, pour a little into the corners first, back your way out of the area. If you require more than 2 batches you should have a helper, have a measured pre-filled bucket for each batch to save time (you can re-use the same mixing bucket), so you only have to clean one or two at most. You must caulk or fill any hole no how small or the cement will drain out. This product dries fast so keep moving.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lriv39 It stinks but works!
Used this to level our concrete sub floor in preparation for 18"x18" tile. We had low spots from an eighth to over half inch to fix and this works great!
Things I learned after messing up half a bag, only mix half a bag at a time unless you have a huge area to do. Watch as many YouTube videos as you can find on pouring lever on a sub floor so you get the idea of how this stuff moves and how they manipulate it.
It's a very fine and dusty product and will make a mess where ever you mix it. Wear a mask and cover what you don't want dusted if mixing in doors.
I found using a straight edge to get it level did not work for me. It left it level but low. Maybe it was the 2x4, maybe operator error but it took away too much product leaving my spot low still.
I found using a hand held scarifier worked perfect. Pour the batter in the middle of your low spot and use the scarafier tines to move the product in all directions. Lay down on how floor and look at it eye level to see if it's close to where you want it. While it's still wet pour more in the center of where you need it and spread it out again if it's still low. You've got at most 15/20 min to work with it from the time you finish your 2 min mixing. Once you add that mix to water it's go time, so have all your tools in place and ready.
It's runny like pancake batter, behaves like pancake batter and smells way worse than pancake batter! As it's drying it filled the house with a rotten egg smell. Pretty gross. I'm not sure why I didn't read any reviews about that, but every batch I made smelled fine at first then when it started to get thick it smelled awful. So, if your sensative to that open all your Windows after you pour or head out for a couple hours.
Make sure to use the latex primer before you pour, allowing a couple hours for it to dry. It helps the leveler move fluidly over the substrate and find level.
After 3 bags we've got it down and this stuff is amazing.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KM74136 Not a happy person.......
I had a small job that would take just 1 bag Primarily to level out the shower basin area but figured I would carry it over into the floor tile area. It should be a quick and easy job.
I am gutted with the final results. The shower area looks great but coming out onto the floor tile area there are "waves" in leveler that did not show up when wet. The ridges are worse than the floor was before adding LevelQuik RS. It did seem to be harder to work with towards the end of the process.
I reviewed different brands. Henry looked really good but they were out when I went to buy the leveler.
I read the instructions over and over again. I reviewed the video 8+ times pausing to look at the details. I called tech service and they just said grind it down or chisel it out!!! AAARRRGGHHH.
Not sure what to do now???? Add more leveler? Try the Henry brand when it comes in??

Dries WAY too fast! does not flow into the low areas as it should! f you could somehow slow down the drying time, it may work alright, but they way it is it's only good for small areas!
