I've just gotten my pool replastered (finally, since the gunite was showing in spots). The crew finished the application Tuesday at 1:30 PM and started filling it up. It finished filling last night (Wednesday) around midnight. This morning, I turned on the pump, checked the pH (8.2) and added enough acid to target 7.2. I set it so that the drain was pulling instead of the skimmer. I then began sweeping. As I swept, I expected to see clouds of plaster dust. Instead, I saw barely anything. In fact, after I had swept the entire pool as thoroughly as possible, the water was still quite clear.
Is that normal? Am I not applying enough pressure or using the wrong type of brush?
Also, I noticed a small stain (roughly 1.25" diameter) on the steps and another on the bottom. I've circled them in the picture below. Brushing them had no effect, but I'm wondering if it's something to ask my PB about or if it will go away over time on its own. The black and white flecks in the picture are floating on the surface. I apologize for the poor quality of the photo. It's from my iPhone.
