The main purpose of the liquid is to assess whether you are deficient or not. Not only initially, but every once in a while to see if you have sufficient zinc, so you don't take too much. People who have trouble absorbing zinc or whatever, take the liquid test once in a while to assess their zinc status. If your zinc levels are normal the liquid tastes horrible, otherwise, you can hardly taste it at all.

I have read a lot of different sources in the past couple of days.

One mentioning length of time to get back to normal zinc levels, if you are taking pills:

"How long will you have to take this supplement?

This is not an instant cure. If the zinc depletion is marginal then taking supplements for a few months may cause the symptoms to disappear. However severe zinc depletion may take a year or more before all symptoms go away."

Is this reliable? I don't know, but there seem to be a number of scientific studies regarding zinc deficiency and sense of smell/taste.

Fortunately zinc pills are cheap and easily available.
