I don't know if you can do what you want or not. I can tell you what the program will accept, and then you can try to figure out whether you can make meaningful calculations. The main problem with your input file is that each component in the solid solution must be defined as a PHASE. You can not nest solid solutions 1, 2, and 3, in SOLID_SOLUTION 4. Thus you either have to define your solid solution in terms of the fundamental component CaO, Fe(OH)2, Al2O3, SiO2, etc. and you would probably have to combine CaO from all of the different places with a single coefficient. Or you have to define PHASES that have specified concentrations, which then participate in the solid solution, for example (CaO)3(SiO2)2(H2O)3. You would have to define a reaction and an equilibrium constant for each of these phases. I think the second approach is probably closer to what you need to do. The following input file uses a simplified version of your input file and the first approach. The file simply reacts the solid solution to equilibrium with the solution. I suspect that defining the H2O for the solid solution in this way is problematic; it tends to put all of the water from the solution into the solid solution and makes a concentrated acetate solution. Anyway, perhaps this will get you started and you can write back with your next problem. I'm not promising the program will work for your system, but we can give it at try.
