I was able to clean it off pretty easily with hot water but that's a theory for sure. did't do a taste test to see haha. if it happens again, ill have to inspect more closely.

Double check the flow rate. It's the heat of the bulb precipitating out the calcium/carbonate. The bulb may be running hotter than it should.
