    Pool being replastered - bond coat got wet

    Hi,

    I'm having my pool replastered and today they did all of the prep work. They drained the pool, acid washed, and bond coated. When I got home from work tonight, my timer had turned on my pool pumps (both the filter pump and polaris pump). The pumps ran for just over an hour. Now there is a decent amount of water at the bottom of the pool, and you can see where the water ran down from returns to the drain (pic below). At least the pumps weren't running completely dry... Should I be concerned that the bond coat is wet? How long should it have been allowed to remain completely dry?

    Tomorrow they are coming out to start applying the new plaster. I plan on being here to talk this over with them. I figured I would see what I could find out before then.

    Um....why didn't they turn off the breakers to the pumps? That would be the first question I ask.

    Yes, I will definately address that today. My main concern is whehter the water on the bond coat is going to affect the quality of the job.

    We don't re-plaster, but in my opinion it can be fixed if anything is wrong.
