The previous homeowner, an elderly lady, had spoken about the secret tub that was covered years ago due to lack of use. She said that as they got older, they stopped using it and decided to convert it into an office. She even demo an old-time photo of it filled with water and people, but it didn’t give a good view of how the whirlpool bath itself seemed. “I was truly appalled and overjoyed that something so beautiful was IN our home! I was too absolutely grateful to discover the previous owners took such great care that what they did “couldve been” changed! ” remembers Mark.

When Mark and Jenny moved into their brand-new live, one of the first things that they did was to tear away the carpet above the obscured fortune. Mark was really surprised that the tile in the whirlpool bath appeared beautiful and was deep. “Thankfully, the tub was in really great shape. The tile is absolutely beautiful. After tearing off the cover-up, I then had to chip away all of the leveling material they used at the edges of the bathtub. Next, I threw a new coating of sealant on the stone floors. After that, we expended hours upon hours going all of the grout whitened and the tub sterilized. We too had to threw weather depriving on all the doorways to better seal in the air. Finally, we contributed a security system so that an alarm will go off if someone participates the area without deactivating it. We have a small child and never wanted to have to worry about her dropped in unsupervised, ” he explains.

Now they eventually have the time to fix it up to run again. “While it was always our intention to fix up the hot tub, it genuinely didn’t reach the top of our’ need’ list until the lockdown, so that’s when we knocked it up a gear in terms of restoration endeavours, ” says Mark. “We got a second opinion from a whirlpool bath professional, and now we do plan to replace at least one of the water shoots for energy efficiency measures intellects. Due to the power consumption differences between the old-time and brand-new shoot, the new run are really pay for itself in less than a year. So hopefully we can get that work done as soon as possible! ”
