    Reviews for the R5L

    by Bullfrog Spas

    just hooked ours up today and we cant not get the Jet pumps to come on?? why

    jet pumps


    We love the compact size which is perfect for us empty nesters! Great temperature regulation and jets, easy to maintain, user friendly and aesthetically pleasing on the patio. Only issue has been the mysterious disappearance of 2 of the plastic louvers on the jets but does not effect the function. Highly recommended!

    Love my BullFrog spa!


    I had a CalSpa that I used daily for 15 years. I decided to replace it with the BullFrog R5L. When the spa was installed last week, I was so excited to start enjoying my new spa. From the very first soak until today, I have been so disappointed with the design of the seating areas. Admittedly this is an R5L, so there are only three options. Regardless, non of the three seating configurations are in any way comfortable. The reclining seat is oddly configured to the point where sitting there is unnatural, especially where your low back and neck come into contact with the seat. My neck is forced forward by the top of the headrest because the headrest pad juts out almost two inches from the seat moving me forward unnaturally. It is impossible to relax in that position. The small jet outlets have little raised areas around the perimeter of the jet. These raised sections of the jets come into contact with the skin and scratch and are otherwise uncomfortable. The heater does not keep the spa at the desired temperature. I found that I needed to turn the jets on low approximately 45 minutes before using the spa to get it back to the desired temp. If I could return the spa and go back to my 15-year-old CalSpa I would. A One-star RATING is being generous. SO DISAPPOINTED!

    Very uncomfortable!

    The Spa has been great except for one small problem with the clips that attach the filter cover plate. They break easily if you lean too hard on the cover plate but the dealer has taken care of this for me twice over the last 2 years. I jump in and take a relaxing soak every day and sometimes twice a day!

    The Spa has been great

    Bought our Bullfrog R5L in 2016 and absolutely love it! It's the perfect size for two people and doesn't take up a lot of room on our patio. The jet system is very customizable and we bought two extra jetpacks to swap out when we prefer a different type of massage. We use our spa almost every day and the R5L is easy to maintain and keep clean too! We've owned other brands of spa in the past and we highly recommend a Bullfrog spa over the others!

    Love our R5L!

    The R5L was a perfect fit for my lifestyle and living space. I couldn't be happier with my decision to purchase a Bullfrog spa. Don't know how I lived without one! Highly recommend the R5L if you are looking for a smaller spa. The jet packs are amazing and very low maintenance.

    Love my new spa. It's

    Stan G.

    We absolutely love it! Matter-of-fact, after a day of working out in the yard, we both hopped into our hot tub and just got out.
    It is always ready, hot, the jets are perfect and hit just the right spots. The best part, my first moths electric bill doesn't appear to have changed. I'll double check again this next month but so far, I am a happy customer!

    Heavenly hot tub
