whats the difference with the liquid and powder ...

whats the difference with the liquid and powder version of the developer?
Asked by: Brian
The powder and liquid versions of this developer have the same properties. However, the powder version would require the addition of water at a temperature of 80-90° F to completely dissolve it while the liquid version can be diluted with water at temperature between 60-80° F.

When dilution is suggested as 1:3, is that 1+3? or diluted 1 to become 3 times as much? Is the final amount 4 or 3?
Asked by: Bruce
1:3 is sometimes written as 1+3. Both mean 1 part concentrate mixed with 3 parts of water. You may also see, 1 in 4, which also means 1part of concentrate plus 3 parts water to give a TOTAL of 4 parts of diluted (ready to use) developer.
