We live in Maryland, and I bought the barefoot spa 77lm in 1998 when I was in the military. Since then, I moved it 6 times; east coast to west coast and places in between. Still works great! I’ve changed out some things of course; one pump went bad. Replaced the cover three times, but that’s because the first time I replaced it, I got a really cheap one and it only lasted 2 years. The head rests needed replaced a a few years back which I got directly from barefoot spas factory along with a keypad and a few jets, but thats it! My Barefoot still works really well! Still has the original circuit board and heater and most of the other interior components are working well. The shell and frame are all fully intact and don’t look like they’re going to give out any time soon.
I’m also impressed with the Barefoot spa siding. One piece started to bow last year. I fastened a few screws to it, and that fixed the problem. The siding is made of some kind of synthetic. It’s like the material my deck is made out of, but not as thick. I was not expecting to get over 20 years out of my barefoot spa siding! Figured I would have to replace that by now, so that has been a bonus. The siding is synthetic (oil based), so it doesn’t rot out like the wooden siding like my fence, and I haven’t had to stain or seal it. I have literally completed ZERO maintenance on the siding except for fixing the one panel that started to bow last year.
I’m 22 years in, and my barefoot spa shows NO signs of quitting ANY time soon! Can’t believe it honestly. I’ve just been waiting for it to crash on me, but it just keeps going! Think I can make it to 30 years??!! I’m telling you, this spa might just out live me!!!
