In this second video, we show how to level the bathroom floor yourself using Laticrete's NXT. Mixing this grader with the correct proportion of water is essential. We delved into the details and showed how simple it is to level the bathroom floor after the prep work.

The first step is to accurately measure the amount of water needed for the NXT grader. This is critical because if there is too much or too little water, the NXT will not work, and that applies to all graders.
Pour water into a large mixing barrel and add NXT. Wear a silica powder respirator to protect the lungs. Mix according to Laticrete's instructions and immediately pour NXT onto a primed and prepared concrete floor.
We needed 6 bags of NXT for this basement bathroom and we used a floor brush to help it spread evenly. Add enough NXT to cover the floor screw indicators. Wait 24 hours or until the leveler has cured, then it is okay to put a bathtub or cover the floor.
