    I wouldn't, probably means it has drawn in moisture from the atmosphere. when it happened to me i got very turbulent results in chemical balance

    I would but only of you mixed the entire block. I remember the old aquamedic salt tjat came in the box would sometimes be hard when you opened it. I used that for ages without issues.

    Yeah it's almost lumpy, big clumps of salt. as i said it's drawn moisture out of the atmosphere.
