Re: [IP] Re: Is anyone using U-500?


My thought would be to mix to U200.   When I was mixing H/V, I used an 
empty bottle and measured as accurately as I could using a syringe. Then 
put both in the bottle and loaded the pump from the mixed bottle.

Check my math.  Would U200 be 2 parts U500 and 2 parts dilutant?
