Auto dosing solution - film and evaporation

For anyone out there using an auto doser setup: do you experience film/precipitation/evaporation issues with the solutions in your bottles?

Ive recently set up an auotdosing system using peristaltic pumps and would like to mix enough solution for, say, 3 months. However, since the bottle cant be airtight, I assume there might be some evaporation or bacteria/mold issues that might arise?

Just wondering how much solution folks mix up, if they encounter any issues, and how they get around them.
