    New Plaster and Sheer Descents

    I have a brand new pool freshly plastered and filled with water this past Tuesday. The builder's literature says I can't use my sheer descent for 4 weeks. Why?? The guy who came out and turned on all of the equipment yesterday said when I asked him why, "That's a bunch of nonsense.....it's water...water isn't going to hurt your plaster.....you can run them now" Then why would this very reputable builder put it in their literature??? Thanks, Doug

    If you mean the waterfall, if its hitting the plaster directly as its falling I would say no while its curing. If its just falling into the pool with gap to the wall of the pool -should be fine

    The descents come out of a raised bond beam.....18" above the water and hit the water directly below not hitting the plaster at all.....having a hard time understanding why the returns are ok.....but the descents are not???

    Only think I can think of is the returns are shooting water away from the plaster and thus not really disturbing the water next to the plaster, while the water fall is going to cause turbulence and swirling in the water right next to the plaster.

    Well, yeah, I did not think of a return like that
    I think I would turn it up some.
