Cost Per GallonA
Dilution Rate (OZ per Gal)
Useable Cleaning Solution in Gallons (Mixed)B
CFR Productivity Up to 7 Times Higher
Number of Times CFR Solution is Recycled* 5
CFR Useable Cleaning Solution in GallonsC
Cost per Usable GallonD
CFR Cost SavingsE

Cost Per Case
Gallons Per Case
Cost Per GallonA
Dilution Rate (OZ per Gal)
Useable Cleaning Solution in Gallons (Mixed)B
CFR Useable Cleaning Solution in GallonsC
Cost per Usable GallonD

* Productivity varies depending on soil level of carpet to be cleaned
** 1 gallon = 128 ounces

How to Calculate
A - Cost per Gallon = "Cost Per Case" ÷ "Number of Gallons in Case"
B - Useable Cleaning Solution in Gallons (Mixed) = 128 ÷ "Dilution Rate"
C - CFR Useable Cleaning Solution in Gallons = "Useable Cleaning Solution" × Number of Recycles
D - Cost Per Useable Gallon = "Cost Per Gallon" ÷ "Useable Gallons"
E - CFR Savings = "Competitive Ex Cost Per Useable Gal" - "CFR Cost Per Usable Gal" ÷ "Competitive Ex Cost Per Useable Gal"
