Hto the hello, just wanted to say hello and ask a few questions on my new stonescapes tropics blue surface. First of all should it feel rough as sand paper and be like sanpaper to the touch? I had it redone and replastered and it was finished a week ago and filled. How important is an acid start up and should I do one now? I was thinking this may be the reason it is so rough even though I am brushing it 3 times a day like a mad dog with a nylon brush. Should I be useing a mixed stianless and nylon brush that my contractor recommended or stick with nylon? I dont really trust his advice at this point because he said he was going to do an acid start when we talked about finishing the job among other things he has told me that have been innacurate.Thanks and by the way, I am running pump 24 seven for a week and kreepy every now and then and have ph 7.2 - 7.6 and chlorine is at 2 ppm and ta is 80.
