    Re: Black stain

    What you describe sounds like copper staining. We do not recommend copper based algaecides in this forum for precisely this reason. If you could post a full set of test results and info about your pool, filtration, and method of chlorination we can help you get things corrected. I strongly recommend you read the pool school section of the forum at least twice (link is in my signature). It will give you the basics you need to understand how to properly care for your pool.
