Self Leveling Porcelain Tile - No Mortar No Grout Needed


I'm currently looking at this for a job, almost 900 sq ft to be laid in a high traffic area. Have any of you done this type of installation? I would be interested in hearing both the good and the bad about it.

I like the trashy looking chic in the video.

Dude in the video didn't even know how to lay tile. The swirl marks in the trowel, no back butter, didn't actual set the tile, just sat it down.

And I love all the gaps between the tiles.

How is that self leveling? More like self forming. Only one of them is man enough to wear boots.

Anytime it says you need a perfectly flat surface, it is going to suck. In the early part of the video, it says it conforms to the surface, later you need a perfectly flat surface. Well, with a perfectly flat surface, even if you tile the floor with kitchen sponges, it will be level.

Not sure what self leveling even means in this situation. Maybe just a lost translation?
