  1. I have a 2020 Hot Spring Spa Vanguard model. If the outside weather is below about 35 degrees, I’ll consistently lose a degree every 15 minutes and it will continue to drop below 100 and not ever come back until the cover is closed. Is that what I should expect? My local dealer points to the dumb guideline that a 20 minute soak is all that Hot Spring recommends, but I don’t buy it. Is there something wrong with my tub or is the heater just weak?

  2. Can I put my hot tub up next to the house? Is there a requirement to how far it has to be? It’s coming in a few weeks. Thanks!
