Exactly the reason I got away from Kent Marine.... It is a good salt, but I like to keep about 30 gallons mixed at any given time in case a larger PWC
is needed or the QT tank needs to be filled in a hurry, and that brown residue was driving me nuts!!!
Moved to Red Sea Coral Pro, and haven't had an issue since.... plus the mineral content (Alk
, Calk, Mag) tends to be higher.

Changing brands is no problem. Just don't do a really
with the new salt right away....... use the new salt with 10% pwc
's, which will slowly change your system over.
