    When does a spa become a pool? Where to start?

    So I've successfully (except for the return of the dreaded black algae) gone BBB for a year and half on my dad finally got his swim spa leak fixed (after 4 years) and is ready to get it up and running again.

    Surprisingly, he has kept what little water was in it pretty clean, so its about ready once the pumps/filter are up and running again (some pool repair guy in handling that).

    Its pretty big for a plastic, in-ground spa. He says its 2,000 gallons.

    Do I just treat it like a full-size swimming pool?

    Anything special with the plastic shell? (i.e. no need for calcium harness?)
    15.5K gal, concrete, 1HP AO Smith pump, Hayward C1200 cartridge filter, Zodiac T5 Duo auto cleaner, 8 panel solar heater controlled by Hayward Aqua Solar GL-235
