I would recommend you switch to tropic marine Pro.
What about red Sea alk, Cal liquid supplements? What are you using for alk and Cal then?

I had such a bad experience with their salt and additive on zeovit you have no idea. Their alk additive had something that buffered my ca and inhibited my coral from growth or consuming cal. Once I switched my coral growth went wild. I had a thread in the forum about this I highly recommend you read it.
I also used their system (nopox,rcp and color system) for 3 years and it was just not good for me. It was okish, with coral crash every now and then. so I switched my new tank to zeovit.

Isn't the blue bucket what everyone recommends on this forum for zeovit?

Well that's the thing...everyone means many things.
Ppl look at the low alk and choose. Not many options have low alk so blue bucket becomes one of the short list.
Once ur coral growing very low alk salt is not critical.
Tropic marine pro is good and what I experienced. I have used blue bucket red sea, fritz and another salt I forgot its name. All give low alk but tropic marine what worked the best for me

With help from members in R2R I have a 5 stage rodi system on it's way. I currently get water from my lfs. We also reduced my lighting a bit par range is now 200-300 vs 250-350. I also have Panta Rhei Panta Lith to help clense the water of metals. My Triton test showed high zinc, silicon and barium.

The elevated zinc level is weird, how high was the level ?

Is Triton result from the RO water or from the saltwater of the tank.

how high is your zinc BA and sili?
I have had high BA from overdosign BB
I have had Sili leaching from some tubings and from marine pur blocks
Zinc will most likely be overdosing one the zeo additive.
can you post your triton results?
