Does anyone have a conversion i could use to find out how much salt to add to a 3 liter bottle? I dont have a salinity ppt tester and hope i can figure it out without one =) Share Share this post on Share on Facebook
 06-02-2007, 03:01 AM #2 I think i figured it out, let me know if im right. http://waterontheweb.org/resources/c...iontables.html CONCENTRATIONS 1 gram/Liter %o (part per thousand) 1 milligram/Liter 1 ppm (part per million) 1 microgram/Liter 1 ppb (part per billion) 1 nanogram/Liter 1 ppt (part per trillion) So 25 ppt = 25 grams per liter. 3 liters = 75 grams http://www.gourmetsleuth.com/gram_calc.htm 75 grams = 5.269 tablespoons 1 tablespoon = .0625 cups 5 tbls * .0635 = .34 cups = about 1/3 cup So i think 25 ppt of salt for my 3 liter bottle is 1/3 cup salt.
