Question Prime water conditioner.

I just bought some Prime and I need to know how much to use in a gallon of water. It only gives directions for 50 gallons! ugh!

ok, great. I didn't see that on my bottle. The print is so small I may have missed it. Thanks! :) My bottle just has the cap to measure it out so I'm using another bottle to put it in that has a top for drops.

That's odd as I have a 2 liter jug and a 500 ml bottle of Prime and nowhere on either container do I see two drops per gallon in the instructions. Each container I have states "for smaller volumes, please note each cap thread is approx. 1 ml".

IMHO Prime is the best water conditioner on the market. Prime is for any water that's going into the tank, cycled or not.

I have a 50mL bottle and it had a squeeze lid so you can just squeeze drops in. I don't know if the bigger bottles are any different.
Here is a link for instructions of the smaller bottle stating 2 drops per gallon. Hope that helps!

Cool, thanks for that link! I've always wondered exactly how many drops to use when dosing for a 6gl tank. Since it's hard to overdose with this product I've been guessing on the drop count.

I guess it would be hard to measure with the larger bottles. I guess they assume that if you buy a larger bottle, you have larger tanks, etc.
With the amount you use, I think it would take awhile to go through even a 50mL bottle!
