I'm in the process of draining my pool per the recommendations in this previous thread: New pool owner really high CYA and CH what should I do

Draining the pool has made me realize that the "weird spots" on the stairs are plaster damage that will spread if I don't repair them. Is this something that I can fix myself or should I call in a plaster company to fix it?

There are two spots like this on the stairs that I would want to repair.

Additionally I have some staining around a couple of my return jets, and gray staining all over the pool. Any advice on what it is and how to remove it?

Ok, we'll need to see some test results then on that. The last few sets of test results would be best.
