Cupramine Dosing Formula / Calculator

(.381) * (strength of dose) * (gallons being treated) = mL of Cupramine to dose

Example: (.381) * (.5mg/L) * (10.5 gallons) = 2mL of Cupramine to dose

It is advised by Cupramine that you bring up the levels slowly & not dose all at once.

I think this formula takes some of the guess work out of trying to figure out how much to dose. Especially when using a syringe.
