I can't give you an answer that i am 100% sure of but i would be willing to bet money that when you dosed strontium you dosed for the full tank. and only had probably 30% of that water in your mixture. That would mean you have a huge concentration in your new water.

White ppt is most likely strontium phosphate. I have seen this while trying to bring down phosphate levels in my system. Atricle in FAMA on subject by Klostermann in Oct 1991. This might be it.
