e.g 1 Litre of water have 10 X the amt of chlorine and chloromine but ur anti-chlorine dosage on the label can only get rid of 3X the amt of chlorine and chloromine. Like that the anti-chlorine is useless.
They just suggests generally on dosage per volume of commercial tap water. if you are paranoid, can get those carbon filters that filter off stuffs before it enters ur tank.

Oh dear, if 20L = 1 conventional red pail, I think I've always been overdosing Prime everytime I do WC. I'm using like 1.5ml per red pail!

Anyone else can share their dosage for Prime when they do weekly WC?

PrimeŽ is the complete and concentrated conditioner for both fresh and salt water. PrimeŽ removes chlorine, chloramine and ammonia. PrimeŽ converts ammonia into a safe, non-toxic form that is readily removed by the tank’s biofilter. PrimeŽ may be used during tank cycling to alleviate ammonia/nitrite toxicity. PrimeŽ detoxifies nitrite and nitrate, allowing the biofilter to more efficiently remove them. It will also detoxify any heavy metals found in the tap water at typical concentration levels. PrimeŽ also promotes the production and regeneration of the natural slime coat. PrimeŽ is non-acidic and will not impact pH. PrimeŽ will not overactivate skimmers. Use at start-up and whenever adding or replacing water.
