Maybe your local water service recently purchased some water that has been treated with chloramine instead of normal chlorine. If that's the case, you could be thinking you're removing chlorine from the water you're using for water changes, but not. Call your water co., to ask / see if Amquel makes a difference / hold off on water changes. 

(This idea inspired by a Wright Huntley posting some time ago on Killie-talk, who as I recall also suggested that regular use of a TDS meter can sometimes alert one to an otherwise stealth change in your supplied water.)
