We've got a brand new pool (5-weeks) with a salt system. The grout in the pool tile is very discolored. It's turning a dark green/black color, mostly at and above the waterline. (not all of it, but a good %)

It's getting worse around the waterfall from the spa where it seems to be constantly wet.

Any suggestions on how to clean this away?

Sounds to me like possibly the chlorine levels have not been high enough. The description sounds like algae/mold.

Make sure you test your water regularly - daily would be good.
