I am refurbishing a 30+ year old pool. I was told by two pool companies that after the final plaster coat the pool has to be brushed for 3 days to get rid of all the rough and loose plaster, then they re-filter the water, also that if I am going to use the pool heater I cannot turn it on for 3 weeks after everything is done and the pool is refilled.
If you can put water in it you can swim in it.
"treating" a new plastered pool -- new or old -- you have to treat the water forever. Follow the builders instructions. Each one has his own methods or system. As a rule builders will not allow you to start up a new pool especially if you have no previous experience. They will have a pool tech service the neew pool for the first few weeks so nothing goes wrong. k
Poor chemical balance. Neglect. Contaminated fill water. Iron in the fill water. etc etc etc. k
If the installer says don't run it, I wouldn't. If the plaster falls off for any reason, he can say it was because you didn't follow his instructions and voided the warranty.
yes it is illegal to swim in a swimming pool that is closed
yes turtles can swim in a swimming pool unless you have clorokx then you canot have them in ur pool
lap swim is swimming from the starting place of the pool up to the other end of the pool. . .
looks much better and easier to repair if required
you can swim at the pool
