    New plaster dust- or lack of

    I had all new plaster done on Thursday morning (NPT Quartz Midnight Blue) I am brushing twice a day and all looks good but there is not alot of dust and the water is crystal clear. Water is very well balanced (ORP 660-740 manually dosing liquid chlorine since Saturday evening/ and PH steady at 7.4 thanks to my intellichem) All my equipment is all new. Is barely any dust a good thing?

    pb,

    I suspect your plaster guy added a chemical that keeps the dust at bay.

    When I had a pool re-plastered, and then again when my current pool was installed, they added something like "Chem-Tek" or similar named product...

    I had almost zero plaster dust both times..

    Thanks,

    Jim R.
