Oceanic and CA Issues?

Anyone have incredibly high CA and incredibly low dKH in their oceanic reserviors? I keep my mix and tank at 1.026 and the CA in the reservior after sitting for about a week is over 600 and the dKH is only about 7.4. Anyone else seeing these kind of numbers? I am going to be dissapointed if this salt mix assumes people will be in the 1.024 range and if your out of that range you have to slave for ionic balance.

Here's to swimmin with bowlegged women.

-105G SPS Reef with 30G Sump/Fuge Combo
-30G LTAnemonarium with mated porcelain crabs, 10 sexy shrimp, and 2 pink skunks all tied into the other 135G in my system.

I don't keep mine in a reservoir but when freshly mixed at 35ppt my test kit readings are Ca is ~480 and the Alk is ~8.5 DKH. IME, I don't think there is a truly balanced salt on the market. I have heard that Tropic Marin is close though.
