We did the acid startup technique but I am concerned that not running my equipment for at least 3 days is going to cause an algae bloom. The 3 day comment was from the plaster company. We are mid way through the second day with the pump being off and I really want to start circulating this water! I read all of the pool school info regarding this subject but it did not mention not running the pump. What do you guys think? I have been brushing twice a day and honestly I have very little plaster dust. Let me know some of your opinions as this is the first time we have ever had to replaster the pool. Thanks!
