### How much liquid chlorine in 2500 gallons of water?

Using regular chlorine bleach (5% solution) at a rate of 6.5
ounces of bleach per 1000 gallons of water gives a chlorination
level of 2ppm per 1000 gallons. To get the rate for 2500 gallons,
multiply 6.5 by 2 to get 13 ounces for 2000 gallons, then divide
6.5 by 2 to get 3.25 ounces (the amount of bleach needed to treat
500 gallons) and add that to the 13 ounces to get a total of
16.25 ounces of chlorine bleach per 2500 gallons of water
at a level of 2ppm.
For a swimming pool, you would likely want a 3ppm chlorine to
water ratio (24.375 ounces bleach per 2500 gallons water).

### If you need 1 teaspoon of bleach to 1 gallon of water how much bleach do you need for 24 oz of water?

Simple really.
First convert 1 teaspoon to ounces. 1 teaspoon is 0.166666666667
ounce.
Then divide this number by 128 which is the amount of ounces per
gallon.
0.166666666667/128
0.167 divided by 128 = 0.0013046875 ratio bleach per ounce
0.0013046875 times 24 ounces = 0.0313125 ounce of bleach
Converted to milliliters is 0.926021144426
Draw a little under 1 cc (1 cc is the same as 1 milliliter) into
a syringe and add it to your 24 ounces of water.
I used a powerOne Personal+ calculator with a volume conversion
template to figure this out. Get yours from Infinity Softworks.
