[Histonet] Precipitate

Hey Histonet,

We have a client who is having an odd problem with their processor. They 
are getting "sandy" clogs in station 3. The original thought was that it 
was formalin salts but the texture and color was wrong. Also, station 3 
is 70% which should be weak enough. One of the techs mentioned in 
passing that the water quality in their town was really bad. I think 
that the problem is that, like formalin, the alcohol is causing 
dissolved minerals to be released from the tap water they use to mix 
their 70%. Has anyone seen this before or am I chasing a harebrained 
theory? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
