Jet is no working

We bought the barefoot spa tub. I went to community center building to a show for the hot tub and spas. The local warehouse set up show. There was lot of spas. They sold out the one we want so we order and got 2 month later deliver. One problem the jet in bottom keep popping outside. Is no working. I call service center. They send me new jet in a mail. Hope it will work and this one if it will stay. My wife she cut her foot when she step in a tub when a jet was on a bottom of deep part. When you pull out jet from a hole, or if it fall out like mine is, edge of jet is really very sharp on outside. Be careful!

Barefoot spa sold me a defective

Barefoot spa sold me a defective hot tub. They took care it. A faulty circuit board was the issue, and after jumping through a few hoops, it was finally deemed “defective” by the manufacturer. I had to call, and was on hold for a long time. I ended up having to call twice actually. It seemed like kind of a lot of hassle just to get a clearly dud of a part covered under warranty.

Aside from having to call twice, and the process taking longer than I expected, the customer service I received was ok. Ryan and also James, barefoot customer service reps from call center, were both helpful in getting all this figured out for me. Other than having to wait, the whole thing really wasn’t that difficult.

We just got the part installed yesterday, and the spa is heated up! Cant wait to get back in there tonight! If you’ve ever owned a hot tub, you know what I mean. Once you are used to it, it’s hard to live without it!

Extravagant features and design
We love our new barefoot spa. Extravagant features and design. By far the best. Leaps and bounds better than dynasty spas (our old one), and basically better than any other spa we’ve ever even used ever.

Advantages for me are the comfort to the seats. They feel amazing and you don’t feel crunched up and uncomfortable like we did in our old one. Pretty easy to move around too once you are in there.

Also, the low cost of maintenance is nice. All we really do is change out the filter, and add shock form time to time.

The value was also quite good. We bought ours at a convention trade show type of deal at a discount.

We had an issue with the delivery of the hot tub in to our backyard. We had to get some extra help due to the delivery crew being understaffed to lift it up over our railing. If it wasn’t for the snag, I would give 5 stars… close to perfect.

Barefoot spa customer service complaint
We went to a hot tub show and found Barefoot spas, and thats how I bought my 6 person hot tub. The only problem is with the customer service. When I called no one answered, and I had to leave a message. By the time they got back to me over an hour later, I was already at my appointment, and could not answer. So, I had to wait until today to start all over again.

I do not know how to change the filter for the water, and I expect to be helped right away when I call, not an hour later. I do not have any tools to remove the cartridge, and I need barefoot spa to discuss with my handy man the steps to that process. He is calling for me today to get to the bottom of this!

We went to a show and I picked Master Spas and I bought it. However, it took us four months to have it delivered. I called them a couple of times. But I liked it. It works well and I had no problem with it.

spa set up

The set up of my barefoot spas was quite smooth. Only thing I didn’t like was when they delivered, they didn’t set up the stairs that came with the hot tub. They left a bit of a mess with the plastic wrap used to seal up around the hot tub, and also the box the cover came in. That stuff was kind of bulky. They said they couldn’t take it with them. I had to get my friend to come pick it up with his truck becuase I couldn’t fit it in my recycling or trash can. SO, A couple of set up quirks at the beginning, but since then the spa has been great.

My Barefoot spa was put on my deck too close to the side of my house initially. I had to move it to make room for the cover lifter. No one told me you would need room for the lifter to fold down. This was a major pain in the you know what!

I had to drain the hot tub after I just got it filled. I also had to get a whole different wire for the connection which involved hiring the electrician again to come out.

Barefoot spa Customer service

Barefoot spas customer service and shipping department is horrible. I got my spa delivered to my house on time but they forgot my steps I paid in full for. I have no way of getting in to my spa. I was using a mop bucket. If I fall down because of this, I am going to complain everywhere I can on the internet. They FINALLY shipped my steps yesterday. They will arrive in 3 days. I live in California, and they shipped them all the way from Virginia? Don’t you have a distribution center near me like Amazon? I’m fed up. I shouldn’t have to wait this long. My steps were supposed to come with my spa on shipment. It even had them included on the receipt, and there was no note about a back order. It took them an ENTIRE 24 HOURS to ship my steps after I called and complained. Not acceptable!

I saved up for this barefoot spa for over a year, and having a hot tub was highly anticipated to help relieve my back pain. Getting in and out using a mop bucket is not what I had in mind. The spa, when I’m in the water, makes my back feel amazing, but getting out and having to balance on a damn bucket, and crunch down like I’m doing some kind of a yoga pose completely throws my back out again!!! WHERE ARE MY STEPS???????

We have been very pleased overall with our barefoot spas 77LP. Only problem we’ve had is the neck massager pillow keeps falling off. The little peg on the inside is torn out. I cant get it covered under warranty because they call it “operator error”. It was worth a try though, and yes it was totally my husbands fault for ripping it out when he removed it. I called today again and they are shipping me a new one. even though my husband tried to fix it with glue, it keeps coming off. It was NOT covered under warranty, but barefoot spas gave me a discount off the regular price, and it wasn’t that expensive. I’m also having a problem with the cover buckle things breaking off. ALSO not covered under warranty. That was my son who broke that part! Not gonna worry about it now. The other three work, and its just the one corner that doesn’t buckle to the side.

Delivery of my hot tub handled professionally by barefoot spas

I recently purchased a 77LP from Barefoot Spas. I wanted to write a review because my experience was mostly good. We did have a small problem with the delivery of the 7 foot wide hot tub to my deck in my backyard, but they got it resolved quickly. It wasn’t really an issue. The team that delivered it was able to figure it out without having to remove the deck railing. At first, they asked me to remove it, but I have no idea how to do that. To my surprise, they said “no problem”, and like I said, they figured out another way to make it happen. They actually tilted the hot tub up on its side to better maneuver the hot tub up the steps. I was very impressed, and they made this process look easy.

I told them I considered buying a hot tub online, and they laughed. I can see why now. They said when you buy online, they ship it to you, and they drop it at the end of your driveway. I don’t know how I would’ve moved it all that way myself. My neighbors would’ve seen it sitting there for days, maybe forever!!

My only complaint about the whole process was is it did take them a bit longer than they said it would to actually get the hot tub exactly where I wanted it. They were here for almost 3 hours, but I don’t care because “I would rather have a job done right the first time.” Those were actually his exact words 🙂

Now that I’ve used the hot tub a few times, I can tell you that it is of course AMAZING, and the delivery was, as you can tell, on point, and handled professionally as promised.

Barefoot spa purchase

My wife and I bought a barefoot spa at the spa show local to us. We are quite satisfied with the spa and the delivery to our backyard. Also customer service has been helpful. One small issue we’ve had is the lid of the spa has special buckle clips on the corners that secure the lid to the actual spa. This is one of the things we really liked about the spa. Only problem is, ours is missing part of the buckles. I called barefoot spas and they said the misplaced part is on back order. So, we will be waiting several weeks to get the missing pieces sent to us. In the meantime, I’m worried the wind will blow the cover off and send it sailing because the cover itself is very lightweight. My solution was to put several bricks on top. Looks really bad! Hopefully it will be a temporary solution and we will soon get our missing pieces!

Frustration with Barefoot Spa

I bought a Barefoot spas 77lm to replace my old hot tub which managed to develop leaks throughout the interior plumbing. I purchased the new barefoot spa 10 months ago, and since then have had a series of problems and service calls. It started with a faulty keypad which was replaced TWICE under warranty. The original, and original replacement, lasted barely 2 months! I am now having issues with the keypad AGAIN!

I am very frustrated and Barefoot Spas is now telling me I have a electrical connection issue, and they need to troubleshoot with a certified electrician over the phone. My brother in-law is a contractor with 20 years of experience building houses from the ground up. He hooked up the spa for us, and it is doubtful he did so in error, but now Barefoot spas wants to set up a time to talk with him regarding the connection. He lives in California! What a mess! They will not send me another keypad or send a tech out to replace it again. Clearly the keypad is bad like the others, but Barefoot spas wants to blame the electrical connection? Now I am forced to fork out the money for an electrician to look at it, and I am without a spa for the time being. I need this problem resolved and it is not fair to me to wait, and definitely not fair for me to pay money out of pocket for a hot tub that still does not work properly!!!

Problems resolved and we love the spa

Our spa has been in operation for about seven months now. There have been a few problems, but overall we have found the customer service levels in handling our concerns to be very good.

We shopped around for several months before finding the Barefoot spa 77NP to be absolutely perfect, and the most comfortable of all other brands we looked at by far. I guess it’s just my luck that my brand new spa had a defective pump. I just feel as though buying brand new, I shouldn’t have had ANY problems, so I’m forced to rate my product low. I also recall the new pump taking some time to get working properly. Barefoot Spas DID honor the warranty and covered the cost of the new pump however.

Today, I had an issue with a leaking valve, and that is the main reason why I wanted to write this review. After calling in to the service department, I was able to clear up the issue myself when they walked me through step by step on the phone how to fix it. Again, I must say, with customer service I have been very impressed and pleased. Overall, I’m happy with my Barefoot tub, and the foot massage and also the shoulder massage is AMAZING! Hopefully no more equipment problems moving forward, and now I can just… RELAX!

Barefoot spa hot tub drain

Barefoot Spa owners now for years and years. We got another hot tub from them and it’s working pretty well. Everything has been good this time except there is no drain on the bottom like our old one. You have to take the whole cover off to get to the drain.. so what’s the purpose of the drain? That’s been a little frustrating. My husband had the idea of getting a submersible pump. The kind you buy that goes under water and you hook the hose up to it when its time to drain it. He says it will get all the water out and not leave any down there where you’re feet go like our old one. I think we will do that, and we will see how it works It’s just frustrating because when we bought it we thought it had a drain like our old barefoot spa that you pull out from the side. The power behind the Jets is fantastic however. Lots of bubbles lots of hot water. The power is definitely not lacking and was upgraded since our last one. Overall, we love the tub and it was an upgrade for us.

Barefoot spa warranty not covered

We had our Barefoot spa for 3 years and no problems. We bought it in 2016. We lived up in the mountains and we moved since then. Reason we went with barefoot spa is we didnt have a lot of options living in the rural area. The spa show was at the armory. We got the barefoot spa there and delivered from there. When we moved here to Greensboro, we hired a hot tub mover to help us because we like it and didn’t want to buy another one. That went well, and we’re happy we decided to keep it. Only thing I recommend is to hire a professional for the electrical connections. This is something I thought I could do myself the second time, but I didn’t do it right which led to a short in the circuit board and blew a fuse. Barefoot spa customer service helped me diagnose the problem (which was me), so it was not covered under warranty. They did help me find the part I need, and show me how to put it in myself. That was pretty easy. I was upset at the time about it not being covered under barefoot spa warranty and that was my main complaint about barefoot spas, but I understand it was my fault so I can see why they did it that way. None the less, the customer service rep I talked to a few times was really helpful and he’s been really good at getting back to me with questions etc. In the end, we were without our spa hooked up for a little over a month… Wish I could go back in time and tell myself to spend the $250 on an electrician! Even though I understand what not to do, I’m still never doing that myself again especially if the spa isn’t covered under warranty unless you have proof of professional install.

Barefoot Spas 77LB Review
Upgraded plug and play to 220v

Our Barefoot Spa has added a lot of value to our home and the outdoor space of our rental property. We do rent A LOT through AIRbnb. We’ve been able to increase rates across the board by featuring the spa on our listings with the LED lights going at night. I will upload picture.

My only issue was with the power connection. We bought the Barefoot 77LB because it was advertised at plug and play. Meaning we could hook it up like our old one with a regular plug and outlet. That is how we had it running at first, but that turned out to be inadequate for our guests. The complaint was, the water was nice and hot at first, but when you turn on the jets at full speed the heater cuts off, and the water cools down pretty fast. Kind of defeats the purpose of a HOT tub!

Our rental property is in the mountains and it gets quite cold. Long story short, we ended up upgrading the connection to 220v. Normally not an issue, but there wasn’t enough power in the breaker box for that (very old house/cabin), so we had to upgrade the service. This was an unexpected cost of $1,800!

After reading online, a lot of people have had the same problem with plug and play hot tubs. Expert articles I read also said even if the spa is plug and play to make sure it is “convertible” to 220v. Luckily our Barefoot Spa is convertible, so thats what we did, but we wish we would’ve known this going in so we could budget accordingly. Now that its set up right, our guests love it!

Barefoot Spas 77LM Review
Used Barefoot Spa is… ok

Our experience with the salesperson at the store was not good, but the barefoot spa itself is ok, and we are happy with it. I still remember to this day. VERY RUDE TO MY WIFE! It was a used spa when we bought it last year. It is a 2012 model.

We got a really good deal, and again we love it. Thing is we’ve had a few unexpected challenges. Had to replace the pump motor because the store only did a 90 day warranty. It crapped out after about 11 months of ownership. Got the new pump put in yesterday and we are back up and running. Over all cost: $550. I work in wholesale and wish I had a connect in hot tub parts like with a manufacturer or supplier, but couldnt find a deal. Plus, I had to pay the store where I bought it to put it in. Wasn’t happy about that to say the least.

Barefoot Spas B5 Review
Damaged merchandise
We got a Plug & Play Barefoot Spa. We have it set up in our sun room. It’s a 110 plug-in and doesn’t have to be hardwired in to the wall. It has a good number of jets. 20 something I think. Everything was fine, but we had some minor problems with the in home delivery. They damaged the cover box during transit to our home. They put the cover on the truck wrong with the straps, and the wind on the truck made the straps damage the cardboard. They told me there’s nothing they can do about the damage to the box. The cover itself didn’t have much damage, but we are worried it might have done something to the foam side the cover. I hope this doesn’t create problems in the future. We had a washer dryer unit delivered once where the packaging was damaged and later the dryer stopped working. Again, I hope this doesn’t happen to our hot tub. It was the delivery people who were at fault though, and not Barefoot Spas. The spa has been great. Feels so good to have relaxation in water back in our lives. We’ve just got our fingers crossed about this cover thing.

Barefoot Spas PL8 Review
Our spa is great
We picked up our Barefoot Spa a few months ago when we saw one of the ads on tv about a show. We waited to push our review until we had it for a little bit of some time. Its now been almost a year. The spa is great. Only problem we had is with a headrest. Can’t get it to connect right. The little peg in the back of it is broken off. We’re waiting for a new one to come in the mail now.
