Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hank practice!
many of these reviews are written by people inexperienced with the product..the stuff behaves according to the weather..mixing it wetter to make it self-level easier isn't going to reduce its integrity..a consistency of heavy cream is good..just do your job in two or three pours..don't ask it to turn a disaster into a smooth subfloor in one pour..use a mixing paddle and a good sized powerdriver and mix it well! ..pour the deep areas first..use common sense..and screed with appropriate tools and don't overdo it..it can't self-level if you keep messing with it!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JeffOnDIY Don't be scared by bad reviews. Research, Plan & Execute!
I was initially scared by all the bad reviews and horror stories on the Internet about LevelQuik-RS. I'm sure we all wish that Home Depot carried LevelQuik-ES instead.
I had to level a sunken area in the slab that was rough and uneven. The limited space meant that I only needed three bags of LevelQuik-RS.
Keys to success:
● Buy fresh bags of mix from the same batch
● Use recommended Primer
● Make sure the bags of mix are not hot! I let mine sit on the cement slab indoors for a few weeks before I got around to actually pouring.
● Use chilled water. My water was about 63°F.
● Make sure to seal all possible holes and dam off openings so the mixture doesn't escape.
● Use an egg-beater style of mixing paddle (like Home Depot's Store SKU # 123648) and a corded 1/2" drill. Don't use a spiral mixing paddle; if powder does settle to the bottom of your bucket, those won't mix
● Start with a pre-measured amount of water in your 5-gallon bucket. I started with 5.5 quarts in each.
● Add the powder to the water while mixing. Do not do it the other way around!
I had to work alone, so I used an upside-down 5-gallon bucket to hold the bag of mix level with the mixing bucket. I cut the top on 3 sides and started the drill. It was messy, but I was able to run the drill with one hand and empty the bag of mix slowly into the bucket with the other. I had enough time to pour each bucket after mixing it before starting the next bucket. I did notice the first batch started to harden from bottom-up after about ten minutes but the top layer was still somewhat mobile.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by thebigs1709 No fuss leveler
After watching too many videos showing how to apply self leveler I was hesitant to try. Don't overwhelm yourself with too much information, just mix, pour, and let it dry. The product will do what it's made to do - level out naturally. My gorgeous new 3/8" thick bamboo flooring is laying flat, and the fifty+ year old concrete was far, far from level before application of this product.

I followed the mixing instructions on the package and mixed 5 liter of water with 50 Lb of the product. Used it to level deeps in a plywood sub-floor before I put a hardibacker on it. The mixed product did not self level, instead I now raised areas where I had deeps before and that leaves me in worth situation then I had before.
Apparently per the answer to one of the reviews, you have to mix it with 6 liter of water. For me it is too late, the damage already been done.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin didnt work like expected.
I used this product to try and level my floor for my shower base, I poured it, spread it to cover entire area, and let dry but after 12 hrs I went to check with a level and the product didn't seem to level area much better than it was prior.

This worked like a charm. Had chipped old tile off cement floor and was left with the mortar ridges that were under the tiles. Used the floor leveling mix and now have a smooth solid surface to lay new tile without the mess of trying to grind the mortar off the floor. But do mix according to recommendations on the web not on the bag.

Was scared at first seeing as how this was the first time I've used this product. Floor was large 23ft x 20ft and was very rough to say the least. Had a contractor come in to level the floor by grinding it down but let's just say I got left with a mess. Well to make a long story short the product worked great. Took three of us a little over 2hrs to mix, pour and move around with a 30 inch squeegee. Well the end result was that we were about maybe an 1/8 of an inch off from one side to the other but given the size of the room we were well pleased with the results. Floor looked good considering what we started with and now we will be able to start laying our tile. If I would have know that it would be so easy we would have tried it alot sooner.
