    Do you have any chlorine tablet handy?

    Have you tested the water? If so what are your readings and what did you test with?

    You can hold the puck on the stain for a minute to see if it lifts it. If it does, it's organic and a SLAM Is needed. I'm not familiar with the electronic strip tester. Have you read Pool School?

    If your water is cloudy, you might want to do a SLAM before you go green. You'll need to be able to measure elevated chlorine levels.
