    Pool is at end of 4th week for new plaster. Been Adding about 9oz acid every am to maintain pH. Many opinions at pool stores; can I bring TA and CYA up now or wait. Want to add salt next week. Thanks for the help

    Re: New Plaster

    Stolen quote from linen in another thread:
    It is recommended to wait 30 days before adding salt. See: pool-school/pool_plaster_start-up

    If you are interested in some deep reading on the subject, see: when-should-salt-be-added-t42215.html
    You are probably pretty close to safe to make adjustments.
    What does your pool builder recommend as they are the only ones with skin in the game regarding warranty?

    If I read correctly and it has already been four weeks since the plaster was applied, then yes you should go ahead and adjust the TA and CH levels to be within the normal range.

    It will be 4 weeks in a few days. Company says ok to add salt after 28 days. I just wanted to know if I can up the TA to70. I will get some more CYA next week
