I would want it in writing signed in front of witnesses that Weber would cover cost of tiles, materials and labour for at least 5 years of tiles being down.

The builders will not do much for a tiler, you should know that by now. You would have to take that control yourself, but the priming of the back and side of a ply-board was mainly when the boards were exposed to moisture going onto a groung floor jiosted floor where there was earth below it without a DPM. These floors are becoming less as most new builds are a solid screed and all housing must have a DPM installed.

I assume as tiling onto plywood has been vetoed since this video was shown it no longer applies.
Or is it just wall tiling on to prepared plywood substrate.
Either way I wouldn’t !

Flooring Grade Class 3 ply-wood or Hansons SP 101 ply-wood fixed at 150mm centers, Tilemaster Primeplus, Tilemaster S1 adhesive. Done and guaranteed.
Which thickness ply do you use for testing. I have only ever seen SP101 in 6 and 9mm.

Best practice will always be Backer-board first. But the correct ply-board type can still be tiled. BS5385 changed last year. I ask why a substrate that the industry tiled to for twenty years that I know of and probably longer is now now longer suitable? What as changed in 6 months? In my role has technical support we go out to failure on ply-board but mostly they are of the incorrect type and not suitable for tiling from the start. The soft flooring industry use thousands of ply-board sheets every day and pour thousands of gallons of water based smoothing compounds over them and we get zero phone calls with debonding issues. Why can their industry be able to acheive this when the tiling industry acording to BS5385 need to be protected from this "not suitable" substrate. Nobody from BS contacted Tilemaster for our input has to whether Tilemasters adhesives are suitable and have been since Tilemaster developed them, and will continue to be suitable for fixing tiles to suitable ply-boards.
