    I have a water report from our city (Toronto). However, everything is shown as mg/L.

    How do I go about converting that to ppm. If it was water (as the ingredient) they should be the same, since 1g of water == 1cc or 1ml of water -- hey I remember something from high-school :gw

    But its not water. I know that it will differ for each chemical, is there a table somewhere???

    Actualy it is dead easy.

    1 mg/L = 1 ppm

    Pretty straight forward huh?

    Nothing in life is that easy :p

    Maybe its only that way in Canada :D (but then that would be ok too!).

    Thanks -- so I can just carry on as I have been ;)

    Doesn't a Canadian mg only equal about .75 US mg? Or is that liters? :D
