Don, I’m sorry to not have an answer for your problems but it seems
to me that you are dealing with a super-saturated solution. I mean
that, at boiling temps, the water is able to hold more of your
chemicals in a disolved state. After it cools down to room temp it
has lost some of its “holding” capacity and a certain amount of the
chemicals precipitate out of the liquid. That would explain why the
clear liquid works well at room temps. It is still a super-saturated
solution but just at a lower temp. I’ve had similar issues with
home-brewed pH Minus pickle. Hot it’s a clear liquid, cool it down
to near freezing and it forms a crystaline matrix at the bottom of
the pot. Heat it up again and the crystals go away.
A question I have is where to get the TSP? I’ve called several
places and gotten lots of runaround. I’m sure I’m missing something.
Hope this helps some.
