Measuring quantity

Hello you You write about your products for example 100 ml to 100 liters, so 100 ml is equivalent to 100 grams.? Or pour the material into a measuring glass of ml?

Thank you.
Refael

100ml is very close to 100g so yes you can use this measurement.

But if I measure 100ml weight or I will fill for the CARBON example in a 100ML measuring cup the quantity is different from the question of how the manufacturer intended to measure.?

If you measure 100ml of water it will weigh 100g.

It's is by weight.

You're absolutely right, but if you fill in a glass of measuring 100 ml of stones and weigh 100 grams of stones you will not get the same amount you understand me.

For example if I apply here ML 100 Carbon




I will not get the same amount if I weigh 100 grams of carbon on a weight, for example.

I do understand your point. I'm getting clarification as we speak. I will definitely give you an answer once I have it. I'm pretty sure that the answer is going to be by volume. The reason I say this is because if you look how the containers are marked it is also by ml. If they wanted you to measure by grams the container would also be marked in grams.

Example Aquaforest calcium: the container is marked in grams. You do your measuring in grams.

So because Aquaforest carbon and Zeomix for example are marked in ml I would also measure in ml.

I will give you a for sure response once I get the info from Poland.

I was correct in my thinking. So as the directions state with Aquaforest carbon it is 100ml (volume) for 100L . You will want to pour into a measuring cup to 100ml per 100L of water.
