View Full Version : whirlpool tub access

I will be installing 13x13 tile in my master bath this weekend. Currently, the access panel for our whirlpool tub sits on the slab floor. I assume the only way to tile around this area is to remove the panel, tile up to the base of the tub and then cut the fiberglass access panel to fit. The panel is actually the entire front of the tub. How difficult is it to cut the fiberglass panel?

I would be very afraid of trying to cut that panel, might chip it, not sure, maybe tile just up to within an 1/8" of it and caulk the joint with a matching color, then if you ever have to remove it, should be able to get it off.:)
