Use following formula

Concentration of final solution required (ppm) x Volume of Final Solution (ml)

No of ml of NaOCl Sol required = ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Concentration of NaOCl Solution x 10000

In case you are using 5% NaOCl solution and want to make 100ppm solution. The calculation is simple for X liter of water you need to add 2X ml of NaOCl solution.

Hope above helps

Hello.

Bleach is basically sodium hypochlorite with a concentration of 5.25%.

This is .0525 when expressed as a decimal.  To get parts per million, you multiply is by 1,000,000

So, the bleach solution at 5.25% is 52,500 ppm.

To figure out how much water you need to add to dilute it to 200ppm:

52,500 ppm * (how much water to add) = 200 ppm

or X = 200ppm/52,500 ppm, or .0038 ml per ml of water or .0038 gal per gallon of water

or

3.8 ml per liter of water

or

2.4 oz per 5 gallons
