    New plaster pool - when to adjust PH?

    I've read the pool school and plaster startup but can't seem to find when you adjust the PH? Do you wait 48 hours like the rest of the chemicals or right away? We are doing a traditional startup.

    Right away. And often, it'll be a battle for many months.

    Pool School - Start-up New Plaster

    No matter what start-up procedure is used, your pool will consume a lot of acid during the first 6-12 months as the plaster finish continues to cure. It is important to test your pH daily and do not let it climb above 7.8. Be sure to continue to brush the pool at least weekly during this period.
