The main plus about the spa I really like is the power. When I did my research and looked up the power of spas, what I found was about the electrical connection. The 88lp runs on 220v and 50 amps. It will be installed on my back patio, and I would never EVER get a 110 electrical connection for a hot tub. I’m no electrician, but I was thinking that wouldn’t be efficient to do it that way. Turns out I was right. I read online about 110 volt hot tubs raise your power bill and have horrible energy ratings. My salesman confirmed it.
It was a no brainer to go with 220 volts, but that isn’t really what Im talking about when I say “power”. Let’s talk about what really matters, the power behind the jets! First off, it has 72 jets in it. This is a lot compared to the others I looked at. Also, what I read online says it’s not just a high jet count you should look for. You also want powerful pump motors because think about it. You can have all the jets in the world, but with no power to back it up, your dead in the water. You like my pun?
The 88LP barefoot spa has has THREE 5hp pumps in it for the jets. This is huge!! The other hot tubs I looked at had between two and three HP. When I bought it, I got to see the hot tub running before I bought it. I didn’t get in it because it was in a showroom and trust me, ain’t no body trying to see that!! I did stick my whole arm in there to feel the jets, and Holy cow!! That thing has major water pressure. Honestly, that’s the biggest reason I went with the barefoot 88LP.
Here I am writing a barefoot spas review and I haven’t even got it installed yet, but I’m really excited. Plus, my friend has a barefoot. She’s had it for 3 years, and she loves it. Only difference is mine’s a step up from hers!
