    Quartzscapes Plaster Start Up Instructions

    I have been looking on this forum and there seems to be some difference of opinion on the acid bath vs acid wash. what is required? I cant find Quartzscapes Manufacturer Info anywhere and when I called up TPC, they keep referring me to a local builder. How do i get the actual Manufacturer recommended start up procedures? Does anyone have this? Thanks!

    Here are the basic plaster startup instructions from Pool School...

    Now, if you are wanting to do something similar to an acid start, someone else will need to chime in on that.

    Is plaster startup the same for all plasters? Don't some require different measures? Just curious. I had printed this out but saw other forums where they talked about different ways to start up. some talked about acid washing. Some say to not acid wash and instead to acid bath? Its all very confusing, but in reality to ensure I get the warranty coverage from the manufacturer, I need to follow their instructions, right?

    Yes, in order to maintain your warranty, you need to go about it the way that they require you to.
