Do I have to worry about a Soft spot on the floor of my tub?
My master bath has a jacuzzi whirlpool "majora". No jets, so no access panel. I've noticed a 'soft' spot on the tub floor about 3" round. I cannot see it with my eyes-- its that shallow. But i can feel it with the ball of my foot, or my hand. I just bought the house 4 months ago. There are no visible cracks, and no water damage to the floor underneath (it's over a second bathroom). I can't figure out what it could be. Also I can't access it-- there's my kitchen shared wall on one side and a linen closet on the other. My bf tells me not to worry but I am worried about water damage that I cannot see... So, is it time to call a pro? And which type of pro do I call? Thanks all.

If you have noticed a soft spot on the floor of your tub, it is important to address the issue as soon as possible. A soft spot on the floor of the tub could be a sign of damage or a structural issue that needs to be repaired. If left unaddressed, the soft spot could potentially lead to more serious problems, such as a collapse of the tub floor.
To determine the cause of the soft spot, you may need to remove the tub to access the underlying structure. This should be done by a qualified professional. If the soft spot is caused by water damage, it may be necessary to repair or replace the damaged structural elements. If the soft spot is caused by a manufacturing defect, it may be covered by the manufacturer's warranty.
It is important to have a professional assess the situation and determine the appropriate course of action to ensure the safety and stability of the tub. Do not use the tub until the issue has been resolved.
I tend to worry and make matters worse then they are. Having a professional come out and make a call is very calming for me.
My mom used to say when i doubt hire it out. Took many years but I get it now.
