    How to treat quartz finish

    Hello - I am planning a pool with a quartz finish instead of plaster. Should this finish be treated like a plaster finish from a water chemistry standpoint?

    Thank yo,

    Yes, quartz surfaces are made up of quartz embedded in plaster. To maintain the plaster between the bits of quartz, you need to use the recommended levels for plaster pools.
