    I have had my Bullfrog Spa for a little over a year. I have had no problems with it. It is always ready wjhen ever my wife and I want to hop in. Its energy consumption has been pretty low, as advertised. We are glad we have it!

    The pumps are not large enough to provide sufficient jet pressure.

    We love the spa. I think it is rather difficult to use the control panel and the 104 temp since less warm then that. Otherwise, we are happy with the spa.

    After owning a Spa for 20 + years it was time for a new one. We did our research and chose a Bullfrog Spa that would fit on our 2nd floor deck.
    We are very happy with our choice!

    I have used hot tubs for years. They are, in my view, the best source of shedding daily stress and giving a person the means for immediate relaxation without any additional substances. This particular one, has been really efficient and trouble free. I would recommend this device to anyone interested in quality hot tubs. Easy maintenance and a treasure. If I ever need another hot tub, this is the one I will be purchasing again.

    This spa is low-maintenance and stands up well to Florida heat, humidity, mold… I empty it for 3 months in the summer. It needs a scrubbing, but always starts up beautifully in the fall.

    I have owned hot tubs for most of my adult life. I use it almost everyday and as you can guess, I don’t like a broken spa. The spa I owned previously lasted 15 years. I had numerous service calls during those 15 years and I dreaded calling for repairs. My spa is flush with my deck and each repair required me to drain the spa and move it to give access to the repairman. I had pumps in the front, pumps in the back and jets and pipes running in every direction. So, when researching my next spa I looked for the best engineered product I could find. I felt there had to be a better way. Well, bullfrog certainly addressed all my issues. The jets on my R5L are all in easily replaceable/repairable jet packs which reside inside the spa. The plumbing for each jet is located in the pack, not outside the shell. Each jet pack is attached with only one or two hoses, not one for each jet. The important pumps and electronic “stuff” are all in one spot – the front of the spa. If there is a problem, 4 screws and one panel – and easy access to what needs attention. I have had it for almost two years and did have one problem. A jet pack sprung a leak – the fix – I called Islandia Pools, my dealer and a new one was sent to me for a no charge replacement. No service call, no repair bills – NO DAYS WITHOUT MY SPA. Nicole, my representative at Islandia was professional, attentive and was the very definition of customer service. I would recommend bullfrog to any friend who wanted to get a spa – and I have!

    I have had the hot tub for 27 months now. While I am very happy with the features and design of the tub, I have had a couple of early component failures that have cost me about 8 weeks of lost hot tub time and about $260 in service call out charges (the parts themselves were covered under warranty). Just after 12 months of use the top side controller failed. Apparently it was an older one and had water ingress issues which caused it stop functioning. 5+ week wait for the parts from Bullfrog before the local dealer (Mermaid Pools) could come and replace it. Then about 6 months later a NO COMMS message on the controller and again an non-functioning hot tub. This time after some confusion on the part of the repair technician it required a complete spa pack replacement. Another 2 weeks down and another $130 call out charge. Hope the next 3 years of warranty time are less eventful (and expensive).
    So, in the first 2 years a topside controller failure and spa pack failure. Other than that, when it is working, we love it.

    Works great, how can I get it hotter than 104 or 105?

    We are enjoying our Bullfrog Spa immensely. We take advantage of it every day.
    We only have a couple of issues: The pump motor’s starter solenoid went out on our R5L. It kept tripping the Ground Fault Interrupter. That was kind of disconcerting when we were trying to use the spa.
    We had one hold down clip on the jet pack cover broke. (part # B6631-1100) and 2 broken clips on the spa cover that hold down the cover in windy weather.
    Other then that, it has been a good investment.

    Bill H….the hi-limit switch on your heater is calibrated to shut off at 104 degrees F. This is mandated by law as temperatures higher that 104 can be hazardous to bathers. The hi-limit switch is also used to prevent a runaway heat situation. 104 is plenty warm….my advice is to just leave it alone and enjoy.
