    Pool Heater After Construction?

    Buddy of mine just had a pool built and he's being told not to run the pool heater for 30 days after plaster. Is this true?

    Yes, very true. You can damage the heater by scaling it.

    Our PB recommended leaving out the heater and the SWG of the contract. Since you can't run these things until 30 days after, he recommended adding them later.
