- Start by locating the floor self-leveling pads you will be using. These pads are typically located near the perimeter of the room.
- Next, lay out the pads on the Floor and make sure they are in the same position as the markings on the pad.
- Once the pads are in the correct position, use the included tools to affix them to the floor.
- Once the pads are attached, use the included remote to activate the self-leveling function.
- Remove any carpet or padding from the area you will be installing the pads.
- Measure the distance from the bottom of one pad to the top of the next pad.
- Cut a piece of carpet to fit this measurement, and tack it to the floor.
- Cut the other pads to the same measurement, and tack them to the carpet.
- Level the pads by adjusting the tacks until they are perfectly level.
- Replace the carpet and padding.
Tips and Tricks to Get the Best Results with Floor Self-Leveling
There are a few things you can do to get the best results when using a Floor self-leveling system.
First, always make sure the system is level before using it. If the system is not level, it will not work as intended and may even cause damage to your floor.
Second, be sure to use the correct leveling rods. If you use rods that are too short, the machine will not be able to reach all the way to the floor, and you may not be able to achieve the desired results. If you use rods that are too long, the machine may move too much and cause damage to the floor.
Third, be sure to use the correct amount of leveling fluid. Too much fluid will cause the machine to move too much, and too little fluid will not achieve the desired results.
Finally, be sure to check the machine regularly to make sure it is working properly. If there is any sign of damage, replace the leveling rods, leveling fluid, or both.
Troubleshooting Tips for DIY Installations of Floor Self-Leveling
If you are attempting to install floor self-leveling in your home, here are a few tips to help you get started:
- Make sure you have the correct tools and supplies. To install floor self-leveling, you will need a level, a drill, screws, and a screwdriver. You will also need a leveler if your floor has one.
- Clear the area around the floor. Before you start installing the floor self-leveling, you’ll need to clear the area around it. This will help you ensure that the floor is level and flat when it is finished.
- Drill the flooring. First, drill a hole in the floor where you will be installing the self-leveling. Then, use the screwdriver to screw in the flooring.
- Level the floor. Once the flooring is installed, you’ll need to level it. To do this, use the leveler to make sure the floor is perfectly horizontal and level.
- Cut the excess flooring. If the flooring is too long, you will need to cut it so that it is the correct length. You can also use the leveler to make sure the floor is perfectly horizontal and level before you cut the flooring.
- Finish the installation. Once the flooring is installed, you will need to finish the installation. This includes attaching the flooring to the walls, if necessary, and painting or waxing the floor.
