PoolPlasterExpert-advise?

I have the plaster question on a seperate thread. I wanted to put it on your thread but it says it is full and no more follow ups are allowed. If you are around, I'd like to hear your opinion on this:

We are starting our pool build soon. HOPEFULLY next week. I don't forsee the pool being done until the beginning-mid November. It is a gunite pool with white plaster. We were told we need to brush the plaster, keep the pool open for 30 days and run the filter to get out the plaster dust. It will be cold and leaf-y. The leaves could stain the plaster if we are not quick to get them off and out. Should we wait to plaster the pool in the spring? Has anyone done either-leave it undone or keep it open in the fall/winter to clean and brush? Are there other problems with not getting it done and plastered before the winter? We are in Maryland. Thank you!

I would wait till Spring. The builder will poo poo that because they want the money but won't say that. Stick to your guns. Plaster needs more than 30 days before closing.

In the Spring, time it for either before or after the pollen drop.
