    algae or stains...or something else

    We just purchased a new home with a gunite pool. We were told the discoloration was just algae, but the pool guy was unable to clear it up. It does get lighter after shocking it, but never goes all the way away. Is there a way for me to post pics? I feel like they provide the best information.

    There are a few ways but the best long term is to use photobucket or something like that. I know with photobucket you post the pics there and then copy the IMG link into a post here.

    I myself like best. YMMV

    Can you please share with us all the details about your pool such as surface (plaster? Fiberglass? vinyl?) and types of equipment and how you chlorinate the pool? This information will help us help you. Thanks
