    Bring your pH down to about 7.5-7.6. It's a touch high at 7.9.
    Calcium harness is fine. You dont even need that in a vinyl pool. TA is ok. A touch high. Thats probably the reason the pH is a tad high. But dont worry about it the TA. Just get the pH down a bit with some muriatic acid. Use the pool calculator to detemine how much. Add half the amount, wait an hour and test again.

    Yep, what bk406 said

    Also, with CYA of 50, keep your FC between 4 and 8. You are good to go!

    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.
