best tile leveling system

Good day, I am about to do a project with 7 x 36 wood look tile. I am considering using a leveling system but have never used one on my small rent house jobs. I would appreciate any advice concerning the different wedge systems. thanks

Most will work, Lash is probably the cheapest and available at most HD stores. PLM and Levtec are both good but will be slightly more.

Though it isn't a wedge system, as a DIY'er I used Spin Doctor. More expensive but very DIY friendly. They can also be loosened and re-tightened while the mortar is still wet if you need to make adjustments.

Ridgid has a system that from what I can tell is nearly a copy of Spin Doctor, available at HD. 100 of the tops are $20, 100 of the bottom pieces are $10. They make a few different kinds of the latter for different joint types - linear, T, and cross shaped. I used 'em on my floor and liked them.

Where are you guys from USA/Canada ordering the MLT from? Looks like its distributors are only in Europe.

Plus when you get done with them, you can sell them used and get most of your money back.

I used the Progress Proleveling system, since that's what my tile shop had. It worked fine, but there are probably better ones. You do have to purchase potentially different pieces depending on what type of tile you're doing, but the top is reuseable.
