I use stainless steel pots on an induction cooker for boiling water for preparing food for an infant. I use bottled and supposedly clear and soft water.
When I pour the water into the pot it is crystal clear. I noticed that after boiling it's not that clear anymore. It's somewhat muddy and has visible whitish deposits.
I also noticed that there are white round spots on the bottom of the pot. When the water is boiling, apparently those spots are where the bubbles appear. I bought a brand new and not-so-cheap pot today and after the first use the same spots appeared.
I am not absolutely sure, but I think the two issues are related.
What is happening? How to prevent it? All I'm interested in is boiling water that is as clear after boiling as it was before.
