Good to hear you identified the algae/mold growth and are cleaning your system thoroughly; however, I'm still not convinced the growth (if it is algae) would cause your pH to consistently drop from 6.5 to 3.5. Typically algae raises the pH of a solution by consuming nutrients and carbon dioxide; decreasing pH more-likely points to either a water or buffer problem.
