    Hey, I just started our learning to add salt to my water to obtain certain profile. While trying out the advanced water calculater if I select "add salts to mash only" do I still need to add the same amount to my sparge water?

    No, because you're adding the salts to the mash only.

    if your sparging with new water not treated by the mash there is a separate form for that and all I add is acid to lower the ph

    With RO water, you can just sparge with that with no additions.
