Charles lists a drench dosage based on weight and chemical reactivity selling a pure chemical without filler or inerts being added in the packaging. The math conversion wasn't hard for me so the savings using Prohibit made sense to me based on the number of tanks I have to treat every year.

Know what you are dumping in your tank.
Know you tanks actual water volume when dosing via solution.
I don't see anything wrong with Vermisol.

Here is a posting on SimplyDiscus about using Vermisol. Check out post# 5 and #11.

Also on Charle's pdf. Check what Ken wrote to Charles 9/26/96 on using the 7.5% solution.
