We own the barefoot SS17 SS series swim spa which we purchased recently. We love it! We went with the SS17 becuase we started small and worked our way up.

In July of 2010, we bought the Barefoot spas Fitness spa FS8 series from Barefoot spas at a home show at the convention center. Every since we bought it, I can’t help thinking how we should’ve spent the extra money and purchased a full size swim spa. Now, its been 10 years, and we decided to upgrade to to the bigger SS17. The bigger size is fantastic. Almost as good as the upgrade of the functionality!

We did love our FS8, but it was just too small. My wife used it for some time. It was after she had her back surgery and wanted to do physical therapy and light stretches. She even had her physical therapist over here to help a few times at eh beginning. It was fantastic for that. I have hip problems and same thing. Huge help in mobility and flexibility.

Now we have the SS17, and what a huge difference! Her smiles grow bigger and bigger every day. That is enough for me to say it’s worth it 🙂 We both are still doing our stretches and light exercises, but the options really opened up as far as other things we can do in the spa with our routines. I’ve never been in to swimming in my life, but now even I’ve started to enjoy it, and even I’ve started to smile! My wife is swimming almost like a pro! Hard to imagine just 10 years ago, she was having trouble walking, and getting around the house!! Now she’s a regular swimmer, she has higher energy levels, and we are both in a great mood day in and day out. Life is good!

  1. Yes, we both use it for swimming. My wife is more in to it than I am, and we are at different levels for sure. For me, it took some getting used to, but now I enjoy it. For her, she jumped right in and started swimming!

    I keep the current on a medium level. My wife does the same kind of interval training you’re talking about where she does light to heavy cardio. Hope this helps! If you’re really considering the barefoot SS17, just do it. Our swim spa has been great for us and our kids. we love it!

  2. Hello from Florida! We also recommend the barefoot spas SS17! As former pool owners, we can tell you the swim spa is a cinch to take care of. More time swimming, less time making my hubby clean it 🙂

  3. Thank you for the feedback. We ended up going with the barefoot spas SS17 swim spa! We got it delivered yesterday. My wife is excited to say the least. Me too! Electrician coming out tomorrow morning. How long does it take to fill it up with water?

  4. It takes a really long time to fill it up! We never timed it exactly, but its a few hours. Also, our water pressure isn’t the greatest. Just count on it taking a while.

    Really important, You have to fill it up through where the filter goes.. Like take the filter out, and put the hose in there. I read if you don’t do it like that, it can mess up the pump.
