    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.

    If you have high CH fill water and your CH normally rises quite a bit during the season, I would say leave it alone and let it rise on it's own. However, if the CH is relatively constant over the season, then you may want to add some now.

    Looks like you managed to start a new topic instead of replying, though...

    Not sure which was the original thread since you have the one about test numbers and your pH spiking and the one about the rough suface of your plaster in your spa and I responded to both threads (and I feel the problems are related so all three should probably be combined into one thread) so I will refrain from answering untl you let us know which topic you are referring to.
