    Pebble Sheen, Two weeks Old

    Hello to all,

    I have heard it is not good to vacuum a pool until the plaster/pebblesheen is fully cured [4 weeks]. Our pool was plastered/pebblesheened 2 wks ago Monday Jan 19, acid washed 20, filled 21-22.

    There is a n-bors tree that has dumped a lot of leaves into our pool that have sunk. What is the best way to remove them w out using a wheel-based vacuum cleaner so I do not distrub the pebblesheen?

    Thank you very much,
    tstex

    A vacuum head designed for vinyl pools, with brushes instead of wheels, is fine to use after the first week. It won't hold up long term, but should be fine for a couple of weeks.

    Thank you Jason, I will procure the brush model, along w a new net that is bigger and deeper than the one the pool builder gives you...

    Yup, you want a leaf rake not a leaf skimmer.
