i am not sure but this makes sense to me
some ppl have probs with baking soda, tho some with hard water had no issues at all.
water quality is effected by 2 things
hardness which has to do with mineral content like calcium and lyme
and ph which has tio do with other impurities altering the acidity or alkalinity of the water
waters normal ..pure ph is 7.0 nuetral in fact thats the basis for the nutral on the scale
however like adding a lil acv to the water makes it acidic and bs added makes it alkaline other impurities can do the same.
soi when you have baking soda added to water thats ph is already too close to the alkalinity of the bakinmg soda it might not break it down as easily
a couple drops odf lemon juice or somethng to swing the ph back to nuetral
im not sure it will do the trick but it seems theoreticaly possible to fix the problem that way
