Whirlpool Access Panels
A friend had a home built (via long distance :o) and wanted a travertine surround around her whirlpool bath. She was told she couldn't do that because of the access panel for repair work. OK, I realize there needs to be access but as I'm looking around for pictures for her, I find several photos of whirlpool tubs that "appear" not to have an access panel as the entire tub deck is tiled. There HAS to be one so it must be well camouflaged. I have no idea if her tub is a drop in (how wide the deck is) or if it's an alcove tub. I guess my question is. "where is the access panel when the tub deck/surround is all tile and it appears there isn't one"?
