do not use anything from lowes or home depot. what you need is a self leveling underlayment. go to a concrete supply house or contractors supply store. I recommend United Products self leveling underlayment or Dayton Superior's Levelayer I. Mix it and pour it. that's it. wait a day or 2 and you can lay your tile.

you can probrably use a self leveling floor prep if the floor is not too bad but that stuff is quite expensive if you need a lot of it. make sure you read the instructions and follow them.

just use the self leveler, let it set and install the tile right on to the floor, no hardybacker needed....( use the right mastic ) lic. gen. contractor

I used the self leveling concrete mixture and sure enough, it worked great. Just make sure you do your prep work to ensure excellent results.
