Minimum size for leveling systems?

Hey there - lurker/reader here, but first post - so thanks for all the learning you've provided already

I'm pretty-darn newbie to laying tile where looks matter. (I worked for a non-profit over summers and weekends during college, and we laid donated tile when we built shower houses and stuff at a summer camp...but looks never mattered.) I'm DIY'ing a bathroom remodel now - and looks matter a bit more when it's your own house . I've done the reno, installed a new tub, and almost finished installing the new drywall and hardiebacker - redgard going up over that before I get to tiling.

I've never used a tile leveling system before - but certainly want the best I can do. Seems like these things will result in a much better job.

I'm likely doing a the shower walls with 3x5 subway tiles and the floors with larger-format (probably 4x24).

Most everywhere I see the leveling systems advertised, they hint that they're for "large format" tiles.

Is that meant to imply that there's some minimum size below which they aren't useful and/or can't be used? If so, what's that minimum size? Are 3x5 subways too small?

Thanks again for everything so far - and for dealing with the many questions I'm bound to ask now that I broke down and created an account

You wont be able to use them with the 3x5 nor would you need to. You could use them with the 4x24 if needed.
