The amount of bleach you add per gallon of water to a swimming pool depends on the size of the pool. For a small wading pool that is up to 100 gallons you would add 1/8th of a cup of bleach.

What does percent by volume equal?

Just figure out what each word means. Lets talk about bleach (Chlorex) for example. Let's put some of it into a gallon container. How much should we put in? I say, ok, lets fill it half ways with the bleach. Lets finish up by filling the rest of the gallon container with water. Now lets talk about what we just did. We just added 50 percent of bleach to a gallon with water. That's the answer. We have the percent (50%) and we have the volume (one gallon). So we have talked about percent by volume. Hope that helps. In real life always add the bleach to the water, its safer.
