Cloudy water after aging?
Ok, I had been using water that had gone through my water softener. The test come back very low GH, but extremely high KH. AFter some reading I determined that I really shouldn't be using this water because it depletes the minerals that plants like to have. So I bipassed my Softener and was going to age some of the hard tap water. Last night, Putting that water from the tab into a 20 gallon plastic tub, it was very clear. This morning after checking on it, I notice that it has gone very cloudy, amost like thin milk. I will add that I had a heater and agitator on it and used WArdley's three in one-chlorine, chloramine, and ph buffer.
Has anyone else had water turn cloudy like this before even putting it into the tank. I Know sometimes you get cloudy water coming out of the tap and it is just bubbles that need time to dissipate, but thats not what this is.
