Could they use DI water to test that theory?

Subject: [Histonet] Precipitate
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.
