Butter Bell Issue

I got a Butter Bell just around Christmas (one of those things that let you leave butter out at room temp by inverting a crock of butter into a container of water, thus creating a vacuum seal). I have followed the directions about replacing the water every few days, but I find that after a while the bell develops a sort of blue/green stain that I cannot quite identify. It may be residue from my water, which comes from a well, but I have an iron filter, so I would not expect that to happen. Any ideas?
