    Closing a plaster pool that is only 45 days old

    Hello all,

    Just got my pool re-plastered July 30th. I may keep it open for another week or two. Any special considerations I need to keep in mind because it's so new?

    Thanks

    What is the water temp? You should not close until the temp stays below 60 degrees:

    As far as extra considerations due to the new plaster ... I am not sure. What does the plasterer have to say? After all they are the warranty company.

    Water temp is 75. Do you say 60 to keep alge growth to a minimum?

    From the link I provided:
    Wait - I wait to close until the water temperature is solidly below 60 degrees. Below 60 degrees algae is fairly unlikely to grow and when it does it grows very slowly.
