Read other Barefoot Spas PL7 Reviews
We’ve had the spa for 3 months. Haven’t needed to change the filter yet. Hasn’t stood up against the test of time like I see other reviews and other Barefoot Spas I read about, but so far so good, and we love this hot tub.
Easy to clean. Easy to maintain. I change the filter for the first time. It’s easy. Alls I put in the spa is the shock granules. Other chems in the box, I didn’t use. The Ozonator does good job.
The best feedback I have for my Barefoot Spas review is on the jets in the spa. There is a lot of flow, and the whole spa has a lot of power to it. Guess that’s why they call it a therapy machine. the jet power was what we liked the most about it when we bought it, and we’re pleased to report that its the best thing now that we have it up and running. Also the ozone system and warranty are nice!
We got the Barefoot Spa at the spa and swim spa blowout show last week at the arena downtown. My husband went in by himself and had me on speed dial and speaker phone. The rep we talked to there was very nice and informative. He showed us how we would fit it in our spot, and how the jets are customizable for each of us too. I wanted to include that part because I was not feeling well that day, and I’m glad the salesman was nice enough to talk to me over the phone and answer my questions even though he had to repeat himself a lot because sometimes it takes me a while to understand new things like this.
We’ve had our Barefoot Spa now for a week and my husband has been in there twice a day every day. He’s already feeling better. I’ve only been in it three times and I can also feel an improvement because its given me some pain relief, and any time I can stay away from the brain scrambling pain pills, I’m happy!

I was very disappointed with Barefoot Spas. I had a family reunion planned at my house, and used this as a deadline. I wanted to enjoy the hot tub with my entire family. It would’ve been a huge hit, I know it. We had almost 20 people here, and the spa would’ve gotten tons of use, but those plans fell short because the spa took 2 days past 8 weeks to get here!!!! I’m never doing business with Barefoot Spas again.
The worst part is, I called almost every week for an update, and every time they assured me, that the hot tub was right on schedule. The customer service is horrible. All I asked is for them to give me an update on my order. Can’t they do this like at least every other day or so? I invested a lot of money, and was very thorough, and called them I don’t know how many times, and still the spa showed up three days past the maximum time allowance! If you’re on a tight schedule (who isn’t these days?), then do not deal with these people! When I pay this kind of money for something, I expect it to be delivered exactly when they say it will be delivered at time of purchase! No one ever takes the full amount of time they say they will… except Barefoot! If you order a hot tub from this company, I hope your patient, and you better be flexible on the delivery time. I’m not flexible, I’m a busy person, and I will never refer Barefoot Spas to anyone… ever!
My Barefoot Spa was very relaxing and comfortable. I sold it with my old house. I would buy Barefoot Spas again. I hired a delivery crew that works for Barefoot to install it, and they did good job. I love a good spa that provides warmth, relaxation. It was an amazing feeling. My hot tub was a Barefoot Spas PR5. It was small one. The most I got in it at one time was three people, but that was just once. Most the time it was just me and my wife. It is great for hydrotherapy and warm water massage. I used it mainly for relaxation. I give my Barefoot Spas review 4 stars. I hesitate to give 5 stars beucase I don’t know much about the other kinds of hot tubs out there and how Barefoot Spas compares. All I know is compared to my old one, it is leaps and bounds, and from what I understand, it is in the high end in regards to hot tub quality.
A friend and neighbor recommended me to Barefoot Spas. We swore against the idea of a hot tub for years after our first experience. We had a cheap one we got on special at a store near our old neighborhood. What a disaster that was! It never worked right, and even leaked once right from the bottom! Complete waste of money and nothing but a giant headache.
As you can imagine, it took a while to get us warmed back up “no pun intended” to a hot tub. Our neighbors kept insisting we try there’s, so finally we did, and we were sold again instantly. He gave me a number of the sales rep he dealt with at Barefoot Spas and within a week, we had a hot tub (almost the same one just a little smaller) installed in our own backyard. Delivery crew was great. They answered all our questions and install went smoothly. We have it on our patio which gives us pretty easy access. We got the small steps to go with it. Everything has been great so far. We’ve had it now for about 3 months. It has been a great way to relax, spend time with family, and most importantly, it has helped my wife with her knee pain.
It has been very easy to use. We have the new Corona discharge ozonator system in ours. Same as our neighbors. This is what makes the thing so easy to maintain. Without it, we would’ve been stuck in the same boat like with our old one; always messing with the water chemistry. With this system, we’ve only had to check the balance about once a month so far. Very impressive, and very easy to maintain!
I want to do a comparison of my new Barefoot Spas P-Series PB8 to my old Sundance Optima. I don’t see many comparisons out there about different hot tubs, so I thought I would contribute.
I give the Barefoot Spas a slight edge with a rating of 4.5 stars. My old Optima I give 4.0 stars for the following reasons:
Jet pressure: While the sundance had a fair amount of pressure when the diverter valves were tweaked, the Barefoot proved to be more OVERALL pressure, and without the diverter valves (and extra plumbing), the PB8 has much more overall power with zoned pressure.
Foot massage: The volcano dome in the Barefoot spa PB8 is superb. It provides foot massage to every seat on the unit including a large jet that shoots directly upwards. Foot massage is a must have for me in a hot tub, and I share the opinion of many. The foot massage “dome” feature comes in the Optima as well, but it takes up too much of the footwell, and makes it hard to maneuver in the spa when changing seats. It also does not have as many jets air as much pressure as the Barefoot Spas Volcano dome foot massager.
Chemicals: My Sundance had a ozone system, but the “ozo” system in my Barefoot is far superior. With my sundance I had to supplement with a fair amount of chlorine and clarifier to keep the water clear. With my Barefoot the additives are minimal. I only add small amounts of chlorine about once every other month.
Price: The price I paid for the Sundance Optima was comparable to my new Barefoot Spa. The barefoot was actually about a thousand dollars less, but who’s counting?
Neck and shoulder Therapy: Sundance has this as well, but Baerfoot takes the advantage here because of, again, the jet pressure, and also the angle and adjustment of the shoulder jets. I carry more tension in at the top of my trapezious muscles (shoulder muscles). The sundance would not quite hit them because of the angle. My Barefoot shoots directly down on my shoulders from the top. It hits the spot just right. Also, the two neck and shoulder seats have different depsths. I fit in both, but one seat is much deeper which allows me to fit all the way under the jets to get the most therapy. The sundance lacked in this feature and I could never quite get all the way under the jets.
Comfort: Overall comfort goes to guess who? Barefoot! This is the most comfortable spa I’ve ever used. All seats in the spa are extremely comfortable. I am pretty big. 6’3” 220 lbs, and while the sundace was also comfy, I only really found about three seats that stood out for me. In the Barefoot, its hard to decide on a favorite seat, even for a big guy like me.
We are proud owners of a Barefoot Spas ML7. Best Hot Tub We’ve Ever Owned. It’s the best hot tub we’ve ever owned. Great for therapy. Great for relaxation. Our old spa was no good. Not enough jets. This spa is the real deal. Lots of massage. Lots of enjoyment. Hardly any chemicals to put in the water.
We bought the Barefoot Spas PL7. Finally the missing piece to our backyard paradise. It is amazing. It’s more than we ever wanted in a hot tub I can’t believe we got such a great deal on it. We bought it from a guy named Josh at a spa show. He discounted the spa pretty good to get her business was really happy about that. I work in sales and I can tell a good deal when I see one. Now that we have a backyard complete including grilling area and our pool and hot tub. We can start inviting people over to entertain this spring and summer like we always wanted… Can’t wait!
Sitting in my new mb7 spa from barefoot spas its snowing and my knee feels great after shoveling the walk I wish I would of bought sooner. Barely have to put any chemicals in the water which is really nice too!
ALWAYS NUMBER ONE. WHTH HELPING THE CONSUMER. MY SPA WAS CONSTRUCTED AND HAS OPERATED WITHOUT ANY PROBLEMS,YES I WILL ALWAYS STAY WITH BAREFOOT SPAS. THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!AND YOUR CUSTOMER SERVICE WAS SO HELPFUL WITH MY NEEDS. HAVE A GREAT DAY!
I went to a home show and bought a Barefoot Spas in the winter of 2014 and purchased a hot tub for myself as a birthday present since I was born in January. The Barefoot Spas staff was very courteous and patient with me in selecting the best hot tub to fit me and to fit my home. I use my Barefoot Spa at least 3 times a week, and I have been very happy with it since my purchase. The only problem I’ve had is finding the same water balancer that came with it. The water chemistry was confusing until I researched it and figure it out. I buy the balancer and treatment online now and save money. Also the Barefoot Spas Filter was a challenge to find online too, but found it on Amazon for $22.
I got the Barefoot Spas MB8. Its the best open design I found with all my shopping. I fit 7 adults in my new spa the other night no problem. I wanted to write this review because I’m impressed with that, and also the other outstanding feature is how little chemicals I have to put in the spa. We bought it at the spa show. Mitch (my salesman) was very helpful, and did a good job explaining all this. Loving the tub, loved the process. Barefoot is great, haven’t let me down yet!
