    How long before I can run pool heater after replaster job?

    My pool was replastered 2 weeks ago. It is crystal clear (no dust) and in balance. We are having a pool party on Sunday. Is it okay to use the heater at all? If so, what temperature should I not exceed?

    Thanks

    It should be fine to run the heater. I wouldn't try to get it much more than 100F but anything under that should be fine.

    I'd run it whenever. What are you aiming for? 85, 86? If you had solar panels or even a solar cover it would be that hot by now anyway - unless you've been having weird weather or something.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Thanks for the feedback. Now my pool will be crystal clear AND warm for the party.
