I need to cut concrete around spill-over spa since I have a leak in air line. What I am debating is:
1) Cut a piece of concrete to get to airline and pour with new concrete.
The thing is that I do not know how many cuts I need to do - maybe 4 or 5 to find exact spot where airline is leaking. Also, new concrete will not match the color of my existing one.
2) Cut octagonal shape all around the spa and redo it with interlock.
I like this idea as it will be cleaner and will allow for easy access to the spa in the future should something else go wrong.
-I want to make sure that by going with option 2, spa will stay in place. My understanding is that deck is not really suppose to hold the spa and was done after spa was fixed in place, BUT
-The spa lip is actually 1/8 of an inch in the concrete - will I be able to remove all the concrete without damaging spa ?
I need to make up my mind in the next couple days.
And here is the picture (maybe someone has a better idea how to fix the spa ) :
