We’ve had the 88NP for a while and we really like it. Not a lot of barefoot spas problems. The only real issue I had in the past 5 years is the connection for the hose on the inside broke. I don’t know how long it was broke because I was using a sub pump, then that broke LOL. Anyway, need to get a new pump I guess, but the problem with the spigot is the knob doesn’t turn. I tried looking online to see if anyone had a problem like this and didn’t find anything. The part is out of warranty, so i called Barefoot Spas and they said they could get me the part but it would be expensive, plus I would need to hire someone to put it in. It will be more expensive than buying a new pump for $75 at harbor freight.
Anyway, to any one else reading this and having barefoot spas problems, don’t mess with the spigot. It’s worthless, just get a sub pump to get the water out come time to drain it. Plus, if you drain it with the spigot, it takes FOREVER! it took me about 2 hours the first time. THe sub pump takes roughly 30 minutes. Solid investment. When I called barefoot spas about the spigot, they said the new ones, they don’t even use that part anymore. I wonder why??
