    Pool Resurfaced - How Soon For Borates/Salt

    We had our pool resurfaced this year in March. Glad to find this site and I have been using liquid bleach since the remodel. My question is should I wait a while before adding Borates and/or salt? Or is it ok to do now? My water is crystal clear and for about 6-8 weeks had to add acid daily to keep the PH down but now it is pretty stable. I have had to travel quite a bit so I use the 3" tabs in an inline chlorinator many times, but restict usage to only when I travel.

    FC - 4-7
    pH - 7.5
    TA - 100
    CH - 320
    CYA - 50

    You need to wait 30 days after fresh plaster is applied before adding salt or borates. It has been more than that, so you are good to go.
