    Trying to figure out dropper bottles ( 2 parter)

    Part one... So, I got my second set of DPD tests... IE, powder and the bottle to change the water to clear.

    Here is my issue... first bottle, i felt like over the last 2 weeks the drops got bigger... and the new one... they are smaller, and sometimes squirt out in multiples... so i don't really know my solution to this... the old one i get FC 8. the new i get FC 11 or 12. even with the extra squirts.

    Second part... why is it dpd tablets always show lower FC numbers than the powder? I have some left over... and i notice it is always around 2 lower than the powder... i let them fully dissolve...

    Thanks...

    Maybe there is no solution to part one...
