Probably down to an alkalinity swing. Check it now and then again 24 hrs later. If its moved by a lot then this will be your issue.

I would limit alk swings to no more than 1dKh per day, but I personally think that's the higher mark. I'd shoot for something more like no more than 0.5-0.7dKh per day.

What were your pH & alk before and after the drip? And did you know what your daily alk and calcium usage per day was before starting to drip?

How high did your PH get when you were dripping the kalkwasser? It is as powerful as Muratic Acid in the other direction.
