Our contractor told us that as soon as the last plaster guy stepped out of the pool, water should start to be filled. We then ran our pump the next day after it was completely full, and our contractor put the chemicals in. There did not seem to be a rush to start the filter; only a rush to get water in it soon after the plaster was installed.
