The dry chemicals we use are not lab grade chemicals, but agricultural grade. They are intended to be pure chemicals, with no intentional additives. I don't know why we use ppm concentrations vs. molar concentrations, but they aren't hard to do, until you add the complexity of expressing them in terms of a specific compound - like "carbonates as calcium carbonate".
