    pool closed for winter - spa stays open - recommended ranges

    Quick question: my in-ground pool (plaster) is closed for the winter, and the spa stays open. During the season, they share water via a spillover. For the winter with spa only, I am wondering whether I should shift to suggested ranges for spas in the pool calculator, or stay with the recommended ranges? Of note, the CH recommendation is lower if I shift to spa.

    FC 5
    pH 7.6
    TA 100
    CH 180
    CYA 26

    Should I leave CH at 180? I appreciate all the info available on this site. thanks in advance!

    Yes, I would try to mostly switch over to spa numbers. Here is what I do with mine, it works great. How do I use Chlorine in my Spa (or pool)?
