Hi, Ted--

I'm confused. Max's reply said 200 ppm, so I worked it out and found it was
something like 1/4 oz of household bleach added to a gallon of water.
That's a lot less than adding a quart of bleach to a gallon of water to
make the disinfecting solution. Or am I wrong in my calculations (which
could *very* well be...)?
