Would adding a bunch of CaCl2 or KCl or some other chloride percipitate lead to PbCl2? If so, you can see if lead is coming available by test, or perhaps even neutralize it with your dosing.

Many attribute this to Ca deficiency, as you expect, and the solution would be to increase your Ca (and if you believe in ratios, adjust Mg to keep 4:1).
