Btw anyone having problems with repair might like to follow proposal for
different system:

With this system you would only need to run repair to ensure all data has
maximum redundancy across the cluster (which also increases consistency for
ConsistencyLevel.ONE reads). The tombstone buildup that can kill
performance would be automatically prevented, so you wouldn't need to run
with low GCSeconds values, and there would no longer be the risk of data
corruption when repair can't be run within the GCSeconds window
