If your new routine results in the elimination of bubbles, Doogy, it would seem you have nothing to be concerned about.
As for the presence of silt when water sits for a while, so long as your water testing detects no significant pH swing, and no presence of any toxin, i.e. ammonia, nitrite or nitrate, then you shouldn't have anything to worry about.
