      There's a pretty considerable price difference

      A 24-tablet package of the tablets treats 24 qts and costs $14.95 list or $0.63 per qt

      The 1-ounce bottles of drops that are usually used in the field treat 120 qts and cost $14.95 or $0.12 per quart

      A pair of the 2-oz bottles of drops (good for refilling the 1-ounce bottles) treats 240 qts and costs 16.95 list  or $0.07 per qt

      Say you want to treat a gallon a day for 22 days, the tablets will cost $55 and the drops $6 to $9, depending on whether you buy them in the larger or smaller size bottles.  (The larger size does require re-packaging into the smaller bottles you carry. The one-ounce bottles can be refilled)
