      PP Calculation

      Kusuri PP calls for 6.8 g for 4546 L (1000 UK gal). I have calculated this converts to 5.66 g per 1000 US gal, therefore 14.2 g for my 2500 US gal pond.

      Can someone confirm my dosage calculations?

      Per the calculator, this seems to result in 1.5 ppm dose, is that correct?

      Correct.

      There's a calculator on Koiphen under "Koi Calculators" on the dark blue navigation bar on the home page:

      Typically, the dosage should be 2ppm for several hours. It is rapidly consumed by organics in the pond, meaning multiple doses are needed to keep the concentration sufficient to take care of parasites. I like to use http://www.cascade-pond-supply.com/S...ate-p-888.html. Use strips about every 20 to 30 minutes and add additional PP as needed to maintain concentration for at least 4 to 6 hours.
