Right, been mixing up 1 week at a time for my 6tanks, having trouble getting the Nitrate, Potassium Phosphate, GH booster ferts to disolve properly in the water the trace goes straight away and looks like tea, but the other aren't having it, don't know if its 1 in particular.

Any advice? using warm tapwater

Just leave them be, mine where the same when I started to use EI mixes, just leave them they'll dissolve in the end.

What you using to work out how much of each to add to the water? There is a limit to how much of each you can dissolve in a given amount of water, you might just be over that limit.

I'm using the amounts that ceg4048 advised on the first page of this thread. I was planning on using on only one tank but am now using on all, I'm only making up 500ml at a time, 3tsp. Potassium Nitrate, 1/2tsp Potassium Phosphate, 1/2tsp GH Booster.

Cheers
