Hot tub side panel opening and sealing

Hi, I need to open up the side panel of a hot tub to fix the plumbing inside. How do I open up the side panel, and also how do I re-attach the panel and re-seal it afterwards?

I'm a newbie to home improvement, so appreciate it if detailed info can be provided in terms of what tools/materials I need and step-by-step instruction.

Thanks!

Welcome to the forums.

Those panels don't look removable.
Did you check in an adjacent closed for an access panel ?

Thanks for the quick response.

There doesn't seem to be an access panel. All panels on the side look the same as shown in the pictures.

So you are saying it's a free standing tub. There are no sides against a wall ?
Those panels look to be grouted in. The one where the valves are may be removable but it isn't going to be easy. It looks like it was grouted in place too.

There is only one side accessible. The other 3 sides are against walls.

I see. So basically I have to remove the grout to remove the panel and then re-grout it afterwards?

Thanks.

What is on the other side of the three walls? Any way to access from any of them?
