It is very important to use the manufacturers recommended dilution rates, and if you have a hard time figuring out how many ounces to use simply use the table below!

Dilution Ratio         Oz. Per Gal
1 to 4                            32
1 to 5                            26
1 to 10                          12
1 to 12                          10
1 to 15                          8
1 to 20                          6
1 to 32                          4
1 to 40                          3
1 to 50                          2 1/2
1 to 60                          2
1 to 64                          2
1 to 100                       1
1 to 128                       1
1 to 256                       1/2

 

To find out how much ounces you need, simply divide 128 by the dilution ration. 

128 / dilution ratio = Ounces. per gallon.

 

1 Gallon = 4 quarts  or 8 pints or 16 cups or 128 ounces.

4 Gallons = 16 quarts  or 32 pints or 64 cups or 512 ounces. 

5 Gallons = 20 quarts  or 40 pints or 80 cups or 640 ounces. 

 

Note: 1 liter =1.0566882 quarts. or 1 quart=0.946353 liters. So a quart is just a bit bigger than a liter!

PS. On the average most solutions are based on a 1 to 32 ratio, which is 4 Oz. per gallon.

Here is a fast fact the average office water bottle dispenser contains 18 liters worth of water, which  fills 152.  4 Ounce cone cups. The average person drinks 2 cups of water at a time, or 8 Ounces, That makes the bottle last 76 drinks worth of cooled spring water!
