A builder should never leave the pre-plaster preparation for the plasterer to handle on the morning of this critical phase. It takes too much time to prepare the shell for the plaster on the same day and there is much more to it than a quick power wash. This program lists the tasks, pitfalls, and errors that many builders and plasterers make in preparing for cementitious pool finishes.
