Stock up on liquid and beat the freeze

10/31/2017

It's been a mild Fall so far, but the temperatures are starting to drop. It will only be a short time before the really cold weather arrives and we are unable to ship our freeze sensitive products. This includes products like N&V Expansion Liquid for our MG-Vest and Z4 Investments. But you can avoid problems by planning ahead to ensure you have enough liquid to last until Spring.

We always recommend planning for the worst-case scenario of needing 6 months of liquid on hand. It's always better to have it and not need it, rather than need it and not have it. Here is a good formula to help you calculate the proper amount of liquid to purchase:

  • Take the number of cases of Z4 Investment you use per month
  • Multiply that by 2* (bottles of N&V Expansion Liquid needed per box)
  • Multiple that result by 6 (number of months)

So if you use an average of 4 cases per month it would go something like this:

4 cases X 2 bottle per case X 6 months = 48 bottle of N&V Expansion Liquid

* Note: Most labs use 2 bottles of liquid per 100 gram and 60 gram box. However, if you typically use more or if you use our 500 gram semi-bulk packaging you should calculate 3 bottles per box.

Be sure to store the liquid at normal room temperatures and out of the light. Somewhere like a storage closet or storage room. When stored properly unopened bottles of N&V Expansion Liquid will last for several years without any issues.
