    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    Bo gave you a good reference on closing it.

    I don't know where you got that you needed to run it for 3 days. That is not correct.

    Read the article Bo posted the link to and then ask any questions you don't understand.
