Realizing this is a very old thread, it appeared at the top of a Google search for this treatment. We have a pool that was recently renovated, including new plaster. The issues described above, with white blotches and discoloration, appeared in the first week! We are currently trying to work through this with the installation contractor. Their most recent suggestion was this treatment.

Based on some input from normal maintenance guy, we did some reading and found this post. So, thank you to the author of the post. Otherwise we would've been down a path that would've led to more problems in the future, I'm sure.

We've stopped this from happening
