Buying a pool is a premium luxury investment that will require multiple good choices to maintain its long-term value and usability. After plastering your pool, it is important to balance the water filling the pool and constantly check certain chemicals throughout. The calcium, alkalinity, and pH levels are especially important.
Brushing the pool twice a day for the first month while balancing the water is an imperative task that helps the plaster to cure. No wheels from a vacuum can be used to remove debris, either.
The curing process can take up to a year or more, but 80% is solidified during the first month, so that time is crucial to the pool’s finish. The rest is slowly finished in the remaining 11 months.
During the process, the water will not have a ‘good feel’ to it, and thus people should avoid the water for the first month after the pool is opened.
I have given this advice to people who then (life is about choices) jumped in the water. 😔
Once, the dog jumped in and left paw prints on the new $150,000 pool’s beach area!
Balancing the water using the Langelier Saturation Index and a Taylor test kit will help achieve sustainable results.
Fun facts 😎
Investment is devoting time, effort, or energy to a particular undertaking with the expectation of delivering a desired result.
Adding a pool is a process that can add between 5-10% to your home's total value.
If you take away one thing from this post, it should be that water chemistry is the most important factor in maintaining plaster and pool equipment.
