How Much That Orange Stuff will I need?
Each gallon is enough concentrate to create 256 16 oz. applications of useable product. That is enough to treat roughly 9 areas twice a day for seven days. Also remember, the larger the drain, the more That Orange Stuff Mixture you will need to treat it. i.e. Beer tap drains will require less of the mixture than a large floor drain. Just make sure that the drain is thoroughly rinsed with the That Orange Stuff Mixture as often as is indicated. Remember to review all of the breading areas on this web site or in the information manual. Use the simple formula below to determine the amount that you will need for both the initial elimination and the maintenance program.

Maintenance Program Calculator
Calculating for the Maintenance Program is simple. Take the number of gallons necessary for the Initial Treatment Program from line (4) _________ and multiply it times 0.25: _____________

It a nut shell, you can treat all of the areas of your restaurant during the maintenance program for a full month on the same amount of That Orange Stuff that you used for one week during the initial elimination phase.
