Component Strong vs Component A/B/C

I decided to switch from 2-part over to AF Bailling. I would like to know if I can mix induvidual Component A/B/C into the Calc\Alk\Mineral Salt the same way as Component Strong are mixed. Multi-KG packages make many gallons of liquid however the Component strong package only mixes to about 2 gallon, so I would prefer to get the Components in the 2L bottles. Can I do so?

Component A/B/C are diluted ready to use forms and prepared for direct dosing whereas the component strong are prepared for mixing with other parts. So, although you see larger volume of component A/B/C is available you can not mix them in same exact amount as it will not be of same concentration as component strong because of diluted stock concentration...

I though that is probably the case. Question is if they have the same ingredients, short of potassium, how much should I mix into bailling liquids to match component strong?

I see from documentation that the individual element supplements are supposed to be used in place of component strong. Can I add those in equal portions to one container and dose the mixture?

You can add 2,5ml Kalium to 1L Reef Mineral Salt solution.
