    All of my triton core 7 3a containers have some sort of granules in them. Is this normal and if so should I strain them before adding to dosing reservoir to prevent clogging?

    Thanks

    Most people just have to put the bottle in a warmer location or in a tub with some hot water around it. But I suppose the microwave thing SHOULD work also No need to boil it ,, just get it back to slightly above room temp then when it settles back to room temp it will be dissolved again with no granules

    Below 16C, the core 7 3a and 3b solutions (mainly) will start to precipitate out. This is due to the concentration of the solution.

    Simply place them on a warm radiator or in a bowl of hot water for 20 mins and shake to dissolve the precipitate back into solution. I usually microwave mine in the plastic bottles, however I wouldn't recommend this at all for the cartons!
