Question Flooring underlayment

I am planning to install ceramic tiles on the floors of five rooms, two of which are not connected, however, the floors are uneven. The existing floors are concrete. The sizes of four rooms are 10x12 and one room is approx. 14x18. I would like to pour a self-leveling concrete compound on all the floors for myself. The thicknes is about 1/2" to 3/4" thick. I don't know what brand to use or how to go about it, "simple instructions". Thanks for the help.

This will cost a small fortune (second or third mortgage). SLC is mucho expensive stuff. Additionally an SLC pour that big is not a diy job in my opinion. Can you describe the floor in detail as to the problems you think you have. Maybe we can come up with another solution for you.

I smell a mud bed needed..........

I agree with what Johhny said. If you want 1/2-3/4" thick SLC, it would cost a FORTUNE
