CYA directly into pool

Not thinking, I added 3 lbs of stabilizer directly into the pool, before I remembered it shold be in a pool sock in the skimmer. Now I have CYA on the bottom of my pool. Is that ok or am I risking damaging the plaster? Any remedy for this mistake? Also, yay or nay on running my pool robot in the meantime?

You won't damage the plaster but it will most likely discolor wherever the CYA lands. I would start brushing to try and keep it in motion. Not a lot you can do at this point. Vacuum might help.
