Our new pool had Hydrazzo installed ~60 days ago and I wanted to see what others deem it safe to start using a Maytronics robot cleaner.

I know there is a lot of brushing action that will be happening on the surface and I want to know what others have done with robots and new pool surfaces

Why no wheeled cleaner for first 30 days? Plaster is sufficiently hard once the pool is full of water. Pool cleaners can be installed and utilized after about two days if there is no plaster dust forming. The reason that tracks develop is usually from plaster dust being "packed down" by the pool cleaner wheels and then not removed by brushing. So it can look like an "indention" (and discolored) but it is not an indention. Brushing afterwards can help prevent the plaster dust from sticking on the plaster.

So based on this detail... after ~30 days... plaster / hydrazzo should be ready to accept a pool cleaner like the Matronics.
