Hi,

So my renovation has moved along nicely and we are hoping for the bonding coat / plaster next week. My PB doesnt do the plaster & they sub it out. I told them I wanted to do the brushing / chemicals myself & they are fine with it.

They said for brushing, it is 2 weeks, 2x per day. I should brush it down and into the center of the pool - basically keep the plaster 'specs' moving so they get filtered out. I asked about a guide & they gave me a PDF (attached).

Is this good or should I go another route? The reason I ask is that my PB is primarily a sub for a very large PB company & while they do amazing work - they specialize in what they specialize in (masonry, building the actual pool structure).

The guide looks pretty old & I want to go the TFP route - that has worked very well for me for years.

Thanks,
Rich

Thank you! This is great information & good reading for me!

EDIT: If only I read before I asked a question :)

Well yesterday was bonding coat day. I think we are doing plaster & water on Wednesday.
