### To Determine

Cost To Use:

Divide dilution into cost per gallon

Examples:

1. 1: 256 dilution selling at
\$12.30 per gallon:
\$12.30 / 257 = .048 or
4.8¢ per gallon
2. 1:10 dilution selling at \$4.00
per gallon: \$4.00 / 11 = .36
per dilute gal.

Ounces Per Gallon:

Divide dilution ratio into 128

Examples:

1. 1:85 dilution
128 / 85 = 1.5
Answer = 1.5 ounces per gal.

Dilution Ratio:

Divide ounces per gallon into 128

Example:

1. 1 1/2 oz, per gallon dilution
128 / 1.5 = 85

Note:
It is necessary to first convert
dilution to ounces for one gallon.

Example: Dilution is 10 ounces
per 5 gallons. Divide 10 by 5
(10/5 = 2) Answer: two ounces
per gallon. Now divide the ounces
per gallon into 128 (128 / 2 = 64).

Parts Per Million (P.P.M.) Of
Active Disinfectant In Various
Use-Dilution Ratios:

Multiply percentage of active
disinfectant times 10,000, and divide
by use - dilution rate

% active x 10,000
dilution rate

Examples:

Given active percentage if 4.5%.

1. At 1:256 (1/2 oz. per gallon)
(4.5 x 10,000) / 256 = 176
ppm active
2. At 1:128 (1 oz. per gallon)
(4.5 x 10,000) / 128 = 352
ppm active
