Plaster coming off-- should we be worried?

Hello! We have noticed pieces of what appears to be chipped off plaster when we skim our pool. We haven't closely examined the entire pool surface but haven't noticed anywhere where it is coming off. Is there any other explanation for having this in our water (see picture)? Our pool was only finished inPlaster chipping 5 30 21.JPG May, 2020. Thank you!

Could have been excess plaster that had gotten inside a pipe and finally broke loose.

Seems that they are big enough to notice if they came off the plaster in the pool itself.

Unless you find more of it, or see where it came off, I would not be too concerned.
