Is there anyway to make a solution of this to setup to a dosing pump? Possible to dilute with ro/di water?

For example it says to dose 1 drop per 25gal:

How many drops per 1L to make a solution of the same equivalent?

I am unaware of any authorized way to make a solution like that.

Besides for convenience, is there a specific reason why you'd like to dose like this?

What products from AF are you currently using?

It's actually 1 drop per 27 US Gallons. [emoji41]

I would suggest to dose this per the directions . Micro E is very strong and you wouldn't want to over dose it. [emoji4]

I remember somebody brought this up. And unfortunately is not possible.

I understand its more convenient as we might be away for days or weeks even months. Hope AF could figure this out

Have a look at Component B in 2L form - you can dose that.
My guess is its just Micro E to 2L R/O but its just a guess

Same like NP Pro in 2L form is 50ml NP Pro to 2L R/O

The bottle your using might be better to use as the iron in a dosing container of Comp B tends to settle onto the bottom.
Least with a bottle & dropping you can shake before you dose.

Thanks, I hope AF can confirm this for micro-E, are they still active on here?

I can confirm this.


Micro E contains the same heavy elements like Component B but Micro E is more concentrated. [emoji6]

Great! Now I could use some help with the calculations...

How much microE add to 1L of RO/DI to dose 10ml of solution from a dosing pump per dose, to get the same concentrations as 1 drop per 27 gal?
