Hi all,
Got some 1sqm 6mm tiles to lay and the subfloor is 18mm T&G ply on top of joists. On this is 6mm hardie board (was used to build up height to match landing) and ditra mat.
Underneath this is wet UFH.

As the ply is straight onto joists the floor is not exactly 100% flat and level. It's not massively out, max of around 4-5mm if that.

Would it be ok to get round this using just the tile adhesive?
Was going to use Kerakoll BioGel Rapid, and using a 12mm notched trowel. I'll be back buttering as well.
