Fleet enema and milliliters

I get some really strange behavior from the Fertilator when I input Fleet in ml's. Sometimes, it freezes up and at other times it reads "NaN". What's going on with that?

check it out and provide comment.
Entering my typical doses, .5 tsp KNO3 and .25 tsp Enema in a 60 g tank, into the new fertilator yeilds an N/P ratio of 1.65. With the previous version, fertilator calculated an N/P ratio of 8.25 when provided with identical data. Which version calculates correctly?

This is my calculation for fleet enema as compared to the value output by the current fertilator.

Fertilator: .25 tsp of Fleet enema in 60 gal = 4.35 ppm

My math: .25 tsp = 1.23 ml x 131.36 mg/ml PO4 (from http://users.ev1.net/~spituch/Chemicals/chemicals.html#Phosphate from Fleet Enema) = 161.866 mg of PO4 added

since 60 gal = 227 liters, we can calculate that 161.866mg PO4/227 liters H2O = .713 mg/liter = .713 ppm

Which is correct? It seems to me, that the fleet enema calculation is very wrong in the current fertilator.

Since Jeff and I are both TMG users with same tank size, I'll bogart on his thread for both of us.

TMG adds K but when I select Tropica TMG Fe and add 10ml to a 75g tank, the K field remains blank. I understand you will fix the decimal place with the Fe calc, maybe this will fix both. Currently 10ml gives me 0.02 Fe. This should also add

This is based on Claus' original post on the Krib that said it has (K 0.79%, Mg 0.39%, S 1.01%, B 0.004%, Cu 0.006%, Fe 0.07%,
Mn 0.04%, Mo 0.002% Zn 0.002%. HEEDTA and DTPA as chelators)

Math: 75g tank = 60 g actual= 227 l
10ml TMG = 10g = 10,000 mg

0.79% x 10,000 mg / 227 liters = 0.348 ppm

Unless I botched a power of 10 or decimal here....

By same token, 10ml also adds 0.172 ppm Mg

Thanks for all the work for us!
