I am renovating a bathroom and installing a jetted tub.My next step is to build a tub deck. I plan on tiling the tubdeck.I need to include an access panel to the tub pump.I have seen many pictures of beautifully tiled tub decks on the internet and I don't see access panels.Any suggestions on how to build a discrete access panel that doesnt stand out?

Schluter www.schluter.com (http://www.schluter.com) makes some magnets and brackets designed to hold a tiled panel. You can use a color matched caulk instead of grout to fill in around it...cut it away if you ever need to perform maintenance. There are other techniques. Check on www.johnbridge.com (http://www.johnbridge.com) they live tile there.
