I've read many back-and-fourths on this topic, but I just wanted to make sure I'm not hurting anything with the method that I use. I pour the chlorine directly into the skimmer while the pump's running. That way, I figure the returns will disperse it nicely. I also pour it into the skimmer pretty slowly, so it dilutes a bit before reaching my pipes, filter, pump, etc. Am I causing undue harm or wear-and-tear to any components by doing this, or am I safe to continue on this way?
