used hot tub questions

We just recieved a wonderful second hand hot tub. When we were refurbishing the redwood surround, we noticed that the center of one side of the wood ledge is warped about 1/4 inch. Also there is a hairline crack on the corner surface of the fiberglass shell. Do we need to be concerned? Can this effect the pool structure? What should we do about it?
Thanks
Diane

Hi there, 1/4" is not a lot , however if this is in close proximity to the crack, you would want to investigate further, the siding may or may not be simple to take off , theres a sturdy frame that actually supports the shell, the skirt, [ redwood? ] paneling around the frame is just for looks, if you can take the skirt off, on that side you can check if any supports are rotted away, broken or ? and take corrective action, hairline cracks in plastic shells don't generally leak water,

hope this helps
