Yep, as much as it hurts, I think that is the right choice. Too much of an investment to rush things and end up with an inferior product. Plaster is delayed until the 25th now, which is the day after I get back. :/Hold off on the plaster until you can be there. Those first two weeks are SO important for the long term "health" of your pool's plaster. This is something that need to be taken care of every day-brushing, testing, adjusting pH and such as needed. It hurt for me to say that but................it is for the best!!!
