    Plaster 2 weeks old...can I run my cleaner yet

    Ok, plaster was completed and water was filled on 8/21 and I have been brushing it like crazy...

    but when can I run my 2 wheel pool cleaner...

    start up pool guy that the PB paid for is telling me I can run it now, but I have read on here to wait 30 days.

    my pool temp has been about 81-85 since it was filled
