You should mix at most 2 tsp per gallon. Anything more will settle as precipitate. When you mix right & allow to settle, any impurities will precipitate and settle to the bottom of your mixing bucket.

Also, if you mix direct to salt water, calcium will precipitate out of the water.

Mix at ratio above or lower, allow to settle for an hour the drip. Make sure you mix with RODI water.

I was putting 5 tsp in 5 gallons of ro water. For my topoffwater water. I stirred it, went back and it looked like almost all the kalcwasser mix had settled to the bottom.

That's ok, it's not all of it. Just impurities. Don't get that in your system.
