Exclamation Problem when adding GH to ro water

So when I ad GH to my ro water today for example 60 grams to 50 gallons of ro I mix the GH is a cup first with a little water then poor it into the storage container that is heated & has a pump running for circulation.
The problem is that the GH always clumps up on the bottom and I half to stir it like crazy to get it to mix and it never fully dissolves , I have tried to different gh products and they both do the same thing do you guys have this problem ?

Try mixing in a large container you can shake using hot water. Let it settle and pour off the liquid leaving the sediment. Just gauge how much is lost and add extra. Letting it sit helps as well.
