We recently had our pool replastered and converted to salt water. Immediately after it was filled and before the salt was added, I noticed yellow streaks in the plaster. The weekend when there was no salt in the water and maybe a week or two after it was added, the plaster was very nice and smooth. However, now, about a month later, the plaster is rough--the feel is worse than before we had it replastered. The company that replastered and converted the pool has been out there numerous times. They added acid to the water but it did nothing. Now they are telling us the streaks are from dirt or rust in our pipes when they refilled the pool. They say they will have to drain the pool and do an acid wash to get rid of the streaks and to make the plaster smooth again. We are a little skeptical because when we decided to convert to salt water, the company representative kept telling us how he hated salt water pools. Now he is saying he sees this problem all the time in salt water pools. We ended up going with this company because they had good reviews and were BBB approved. Now I am having my doubts. Has anyone else had this experience with a new salt water pool? What would cause the streaks and the rough feel of the plaster? Also, if we drain the pool and they acid wash it, won't it cut down on the life of the new plaster? This company has said they won't charge us to do the labor but we'll have to pay for the chemicals and to refill the pool. I am just trying to figure out if this is something that happens with salt water pools or if this could be defective plaster (or something the company did wrong).
