floor leveler

I need advice as to how to level my bathroom floor b/c the toilet is so obviously tilted.
The joists are uneven so there is a high spot but most importantly the 'tilt' of the floor is about 5/8" at a distance of 5' side to side and about 1/4" form front to back.
I was going to pull the toilet and the vinyl so I'd be on just the plywood. I'd also have to remove the old vanity.
Now it is uncertain to me how to plan pouring a floor leveler and applying a backing board so I can tile.
Could you please connect some dots for me? Thank you.

Hummm tough one. If you are planning to tile, the high spot is probably going to effect you more then the whole floor being out of level. I would probably want to tear the whole floor up and asister some new joists to the old to get it level and more important plane. I realize that could be a real bear with a tub on the floor. One of those things that is hard to call without actually seeing it which is so often a problem here.

What about getting down to the plywood and "pouring" a self leveling floor leveler that will seek its own level?

Floor

Investigate jacking up low areas from underneath.
