Replastering took place on Sunday December 23, 2012. They finished the entire job by around 4:30pm that day.
When the workers were finished the plaster looked fantastic. Nice smooth finish and even coloring.
They placed the hose at the bottom with a rag taped to the end and a water bottle so it would float and turned the water on. Then they left. No followup instructions.
The next morning the plaster was covered with whitish areas (see attached pics). You can also tell from the pics that it rained that night. I immediately called the paster guy and he came over, then telling me to brush the pool twice a day for 2 weeks after filling with water. Would have been nice if he said that in the first place. Well, its been 5 days with no signs of the white areas getting much better and I've scrubbed my arms off. The pump has been running the entire time and I balanced the ph on day 1 (other things I found out by calling a pool maintenance guy). I have not added chlorine.
But the fact is the plaster looked bad before I could even fill the pool with water.
I have a call into my plaster guy to see if we can remedy this situation but any outside advise at this point would be much appreciated.
