I love my hot tub

Barefoot Spas Review:

I absolutely love my hot tub but I do wish they had a tech come out and actually show me all the components. I needed to drain my hot tub and was looking for the valve but found out I need to syphon the water out. Plus the panel is very hard to get off and on.

Hi Anna. Did you try reading the barefoot spas owner’s manual? The one I have, I got from their website. It is generic I think for all the different hot tubs they make, but it does have a list of components and how they work including the drain hose connection. My old hot tub had a special connector on the outside of the siding where I could screw in a hose and drain out the water. It broke after a year, so I bought a submersible pump. It’s an electric pump that has a waterproof cord, and a connection for your hose. You just drop it in the bottom of your filled spa, and it pumps the water out in like 15 minutes. I love mine! It’s a whole lot easier than waiting for the water to drain out the drain. When I did that with my old one, it took 2 hours to get all the water out! Anyway, you should be able to find a “sub” pump for around $60. Trust me, well worth it! Side note: The only time I’ve ever taken the siding off my barefoot spa is when I hooked up the electric (3 years ago). Since then, I’ve had no need to, especially with the use of my sub pump. Hope this helps!

What kid of siding do you have on your Barefoot? Mine has little plastic bolts that snap in and out. It’s pretty easy. Only problem I had was my son bent a couple of the plastic snap bolts trying to put the panel back on because he didn’t take the time to line them up properly. I got them replaced. They were 20 cents a piece at Lowes.
