Other than the traces... if I were to mix up a bottle of NO3 would I need to keep it in the fridge?? because I did, and I think it solidified a bit, and I can hear little pieces as I shake the bottle up....

what about PO4??

thanks very much guys

I keep my po4 in the fridge. How much KNO3 did you put in it. I found that if I made a 10% solution by weight it was fine in the fridge, 20% would crystallize on the bottom but has been fine at room temp.

Solubility decreases at low temperatures so you might get some precipitate by refrigerating. I just dose KNO3 dry now.
