Flush and Zerex ELC

I just recently converted over to Zerex ELC and a dieselsite coolant filter. When I was doing the flush, I followed the directions that many of you have posted on this site. I was unable to pull the block plug because it was stripped so I thought that it would work if I just added a few more flushes during each step in order to make up for amount left in the block. After running with Restore for about 90 minutes at freeway speeds I flushed until the water was mostly clear. Esitmated 5 flushes then I added Restore Plus and did the same drive as before. I must have flushed my truck ten times after the restore plus, but I wasn't able to get perfectly clear water so I opened the radiator drain and left the truck running while I had a hose in the degaus bottle that was keeping the water level up. I did this for about 20 minutes, but I will still keep fairly clear water that still had what appeared to be suds in it. After this I decided to add just about 3.5 gallons of concentrate Zerex ELC, and then I topped off with distilled water. I also ran 5 flushes of distilled after running the hose through my truck for 20 minutes. Should I flush again in order to acheieve clear water or should this be fine?
