I hope I'm not thread jacking but I also have some concerns on new plaster start up.
Trying to help a neighbor out actually. Just re-plastered and the company didn't help out with the start up. They just said to add acid to get the PH down.
Been brushing most everyday.
PH wasn't coming down so my neighbor added 3 gallons of acid in one day.
I took a water sample to Leslie pools and they said alkalinity was fine but PH was way off their chart, probably in the 9's. They said to add more acid.
Is there too much acid in the pool? it's about 15,000 gallons.
Did it hurt anything?
Some areas feel rather rough. Some areas feel bumpy but it will brush off with a bit of effort.
The acid was from a local hardware store. Not sure of the brand. Leslie's said it was probably weak acid and less potent than theirs.
Sorry if this is in wrong place.
Thanks for the help.
