No matter what shape the tub is, the opening in the deck is mostly for decoraion. The actual support is done under the floor of the tub. If it were suspended by the edges, they would crack when you put 400 pounds of water plus one or two people in it.

I am looking into buying a whirlpool tub and really like one that has only a lip(not square but totally oval). My husband is concerned that this sort of tub will be harder to build a supporting structure for. is this true? Is it more expensive and harder to build a support platform for a oval tub? In case, i'm not explaining this right, the tub that I am interested in buying is the Jacuzzi "Fresco". Thanks, Kellie
