    Newly Plastered Pool with streaking and marks

    I had my pool plastered in WetEdge French Grey 9 days ago. There are color variations and streaking in many spots. I expected some but this seems excessive. the pool company insists it will bleach out with the curing process but it doesn't look normal to me. I have been meticulous with chemical levels and brushing. I attached some pictures. Can someone tell me if I am right to be concerned or impatient.

    Yes Luna Quartz. They haven't done acid on it. They said they are going to lower the ph and do a suspended acid treatment for a few days and that should clear it up. The said it's likely calcium.

    The acid should clear it up. Not that have any experience but have read a lot about it as we were going to do Quartz

    You might want to read this article on plaster discolorations, and in particular the ones about colored plaster discolorations.
