It works great in my soil. This year I didn't have to water but twice. Production was up a little too, a tad over 15 lbs per plant. Not a single case of BER. Used about 6 handfuls of ES per plant during the entire season. The only watering issue that affects my plants is cracking from too much water for too long a period.Perhaps you should consider changing your watering regime?
You should not have to use that much ES. to get what you need for tomatoes.
Irregular watering can also prevent the uptake of calcium; in fact it's overwhelmingly the major cause of BER in the uk.
When you water too much at one go, then leave to dry until wilted, you are asking for BER.
Water half as much, twice as often.
