Default Pro Leveling System

These are sweet, no gun needed like those other systems. Can't find them for sale anywhere though.

Yea, all those leveling systems are expensive.

I was comparing them to the QEP one. I think I like this one better.

HD carries the qep ones and since i don't like to keep inventory i can get em in a pinch. They kill your hands though.

none of the systems mentioned above are worth your time and money.

twisting caps on the joints will open them in the thinset. your not really doing anything but holding the tile in place while it drys.

you might as well just use a medium bed thinset and not use them.

if your looking for a professional system then try the MLT or the Tuscan Leveling System. if your looking for cheap then these are your choice. they actually work. using a gun with downward force and the thinset mixed as stated makes for an easy system with perfect final results.

thats not a good idea since you want 100% thinset on the corners so the tile wont chip with hollows from plastic.

also not good for natural stone where corners need support.

plus the spinning CAP can scratch soft natural stones.

cool built in spacer design though.

I like those Tavy spacers, they work well for me. Ive even used them on my LVT jobs. Although my tile guys dont use spacers at all. I really have no idea how they get it looking good that way but more power to them, lol.

Ernie,
How do they come off? Just give them a kick?
