At work we would call it BIO-FILM and you got it going on to the point you may need to take some things apart and replace some hose to get it good again


I just happened to take some pictures this week when i changed some filters that are the first line of defense against "clean water" and it should show why you need to filter what goes in.





filters at 6 week change about 150,000 gallons



Now if you look at the water in a glass it looks and tests fine BUT there is always a lot of TDS "total dissolved solids" that bring a lot of stuff along to feed the bacteria
