Copper. Have your water tested for copper levels.

Agreed with copper. See a pool store to test and removethe copper form the water. After you have cleared the problem, chemically clean the filter sand (if you have a sand filter) to remove the copper that is now embedded in the sand.

It's important to note here that there is also a reason that there is copper in the water...do you have a heater or old-style brass pump? Equipment like this contains copper that is often corroded by unbalanced water chemistry.

Your staining will come back if you don't solve the root problem first.

Good luck!
