of water will fix it.
Math love it.
Fresh is 1 and your mixed is 1.026. Ignore the 1 as it's the supliferous number. Heck, ignore the decimals too.
Now 26 divided by 5 gallons is about 5. So removing 1 gal
mixed and adding 1 gal
fresh willpower by about 5, giving about 1.021. But if you leave the water there and just add about a gal
fresh, bingo. And, like they said, try it and see. Always best to err on the high side as lowering salinity is faster than adding more salt and redissolving it.
