Product Overview

LevelQuik RS (Rapid Setting) Self-Leveling Underlayment helps level floors prior to the installation of ceramic tile, natural stone, resilient flooring, carpet, wood and other floor coverings. This quick-setting underlayment can be applied to 1.5 in. (3.8 cm) thick in one pour and seeks its own level in minutes. With proper installation, the use of LevelQuik RS can achieve an extra heavy rating for high impact use in food plants, dairies, breweries and kitchens. LevelQuik RS helps eliminate installation problems such as bond failure, crumbling and staining of resilient flooring caused by the free moisture found in traditional underlayment.

I have a 50lb bag of levelquick and it states that you must use Latex primer. Home depot only had the Acrylic Prmer any

Asked by: Buck
I had the same problem, all they had was the acrylic primer, no latex. When the pulled the sku, both the acrylic and latex were the same. Weird.

Can you mix the compound in a wheelbarrow or large trash can? Is there a way to slow the potting time?

I'm concerned that I don't have enough time to mix one bag in a 5-gallon bucket, pour and screed, then mix a new batch and pour the new mix on top of the old, potted mix. I'm thinking of mixing 3-4 bags in either a wheelbarrow or a tall (32-gallon) trash can and dumping the whole mix at once. Is there a problem or risk doing it this way? Or, is there a slower-potting version of this compound? Thank you.
Asked by: Greg
Trash can would be best. You can mix it all at once, but you'll need a strong drill and a large paddle to mix it fast. And it'll be a couple hundred pounds so have help. This is the RS for rapid set. There's also an ES (I think it's special order) that is extended set. If you're mixing in one big batch either should be OK to use. Just make sure you seal up any cracks or holes as this stuff will find a path if there is one - IE around toilet flanges, walls, etc. I usually put some caulk or spray foam around all the edges that way you have some wiggle room. It's easy to rip the foam out after it dries and fill in any voids it leaves with mortar.

I have a small 5 x8 bathroom with micro pink 60's tile. I want to level grout lines to go over it with vynal plank groutable tile. What is the BEST way to level grout lines for this use? is this product sandable? does the primer go on before the LQ or after?[before installation of new tile? is there one that doenst set so fast?
Asked by: Tmom
Given these are 60s era tile, I think your best solution will be to remove the tile to get to a more solid sub-surface. The mastic that is under the tile can become loose and cracked. If you are now using that as your base, your floor above will reflect the properties of the substrate below. I think that your best bet is to remove this tile (my experience on this older tile is that it actually comes up pretty easily), and work from a solid base. This leveling compound is like concrete, so it is not 'sandable'. It may seem like a bit more work, but it will be a lot less work than looking at a finished job that needs to be repaired.

LevelQuik RS 50 lb. Self-Leveling Underlayment is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 328.

After removing engineered hard wood from concrete i was left with construction adhesive that even a jackhammer would not remove. The bag says remove all adhesive before using but I had no choice. I can understand that with adhesive such as carpet adhesive that may break loose later and destabilize this underlayment however the adhesive i had wasn't going anywhere! This was my only option left and now I have beautiful floors. This can be poured so thin it won't mess up the level. Work fast though. It sets up quickly (5 minutes) to the point where it is harder to spread and isnt "self leveling" anymore. Work in small batches. Even 1/3 of a bag at a time was too much for me and I followed the water mixing instructions to the ounce.

I used one 5 gallon bucket per bag with water pre-measured. One person mixing, one toting the buckets, and one person smoothing. Follow the directions, block any flow routes you need to, then just go for it. I don't think you can go too fast, but you can go too slow.

Is only workable for a few minutes after pouring, so if covering a large area, mix multiple bags in a cement mixer & add more water. Leveled an uneven 20x13 concrete pad; single-bag batches would skin over before all adjacent batches had been poured, making a border bump where different batches met. Redid with 3-bag pours from a cement mixer, using 6 quarts of water/bag to keep it workable longer.

But wow, the stuff creates an odor like you would not believe once it starts to set. Will chase you out of the house like finger nail polish remover does. Best thing to do it open the windows in that room and close the door and come back the next day. Other than the smell it work wonderfully, exactly what was needed. Glad I listened to the advice of the home depot employee who recommended it.

It was difficult to get the consistency just right without mixing an entire bag, and even then it was either too thick (and wouldn't spread) or too thin (and didn't seem to have the solids to set up right). The finished product is relatively smooth, but there is lip (between an eigth and a quarter inch) around the edge, far from the feather edge advertised.
