    Any ideas on why this happened I was spraying liquid Calcium at 5oz per K from Harrell's. There was no gelling in the tank at all just in the fillers.

    Not enough agitation and that calcium product probably clumped in the bottle.

    Dimension 2EW is a liquid. How did that clog up.
    What type of product is the calcium and was it mixed with anything else?

    I used 2EW in my T with 3-way and Triclopyr and spreader sticker for over 3 weeks and never had a problem. Did it clog the main filter in the system or the ones by the nozzle?

    Looks like all of the above.
    I recently got a bad jug of chemstick that clumped horribly. Looked like Elmer's glue stick dumping it out. Not sure what happened but they exchanged it.

    The tank was clean only the filters had a problem agitation was fine. This was a reaction. I have ordered a new 2.5 of Calcium to test. I will only run it in the tank and see what happens.
