Here is a question about plaster curing after a remodel and a brief history. We live in central Florida and have had a pool for 12 years. We just underwent an extensive remodel, plaster, in ground spa addition and new travertine pool deck. The plaster is river rok and our contractor is a pool service provider as well. We are in the punch list and plaster curing stage and our contractor seems to have deserted us. After looking up proper curing procedures this weekend (after he did not return) we realized he has barely brushed the pool since the fill which was June 3rd. He has added chemicals but I have zero confidence in him at the moment as you can imagine. It has been one long frustrating story, but our main concern right now is getting someone else in here to make sure the plaster cure has not been ruined. We have obvious efflorescence on the cap tiles on the steps. When questioned about it our contractor said it was just the way the tiles look in the water and not a build up of any kind. He has taken (stolen) all our paper work including the permit and any notes regarding water balance if he even had them. We are not new to pool maintenance but we have never been through a replaster curing process before. Any advice on what I can check, feel or look for on the plaster to see if it is damaged or not? Thanks!
