Once pool finishes it start to hydrate immediately after mixing. This period of time when a plaster finishes is most susceptible to staining, scaling and discoloration. A proper start-up procedure including timely brushing and constant monitoring and adjusting of the pool water is mandatory. The following are partial recommendations taken from the National Plasterers Council.
We make sure the filtration equipment is operational.
We remove all floor heads and directional eyeballs.
Based on temperature and type of finish, we then fill the pool on the basis of specified water level without interruption as rapidly as possible with clean potable water to help prevent a bowl ring. We place a clean rag on the end of the hose, always placed in the deepest area, to prevent damage to the surface material.
During that period no one is allowed in the pool during the fill. Also do not allow any other objects of water to enter the pool to help prevent streaking. Do not swim in the pool until the water is properly balanced.
Start the filtration system immediately when your pool is getting full at the middle of the skimmer or specified water level.
Do not add chlorine for 48 hours.
Operate filtration system continuously for a minimum of 72 hours.
Add a quality sequestering agent.
Make sure to adjust the PH,alkalinity and calcium hardness to the recommended levels.
