I'm in the middle of shocking my pool for the first time. Prior to this (2 years), the stairs and buddy seat were white - except for some graying at/above the water line. I am pretty sure the recommendation when adding bleach was to slowly pour it in front of the return jets - so it would get circulated. As opposed to slowly pouring directly into one of the skimmers - because this could somehow damage pool equipment.
I am dearly hoping that I did not damage my fiberglass stairs and buddy seat by shocking the pool by directly adding the correct amount of 8.25% bleach based on TF-100 results and the Pool Calculator. BTW: the water has been crystal clear, and the shock process is showing good progress - hopefully done in a day or two - verified by testing with the TF-100, so the chemicals are all where they should be.
Looking for any advice on what has happened and (hopefully) how to correct it and have it not happen again.
