Hmmm.... I can't remember the exact conversion for liters to gallons, but I do know that Prime dechlorinates using 2 drops per gallon. Prime is great stuff and if you OD it a little there will be no ill effects whatsoever. Case in point, HN1 and I do 50% water changes on our 120 gallon and 75 gallon FW tanks per week. We use a Python, so we dose directly to the tank just before filling with the Python. Due to our anal-retentive nature (LOL!), we give a 150 gallon dose to the 120 and a 100 gallon dose to the 75. No problems ever, only healthy fish.

I think 4ltrs is roughly 1 US gallon, so if I put 4 or 5 drops per 10ltr bucket I think that should be ok.

Yep the guy at the LFS said that you can't OD with dechloriator, (within reason I guess).

Thanks for helping me work that out, you've saved me a trip to the shops!

Prime states on the bottle that it is safe up to 5x OD. You have to be quite careless to get to that point IMO.
