You want to know how many water bottles are in a gallon. But, math is hard. And, who has time for it anyway? Maybe you want to make sure you are drinking a gallon of water every day and only have 16.9-ounce bottles. Maybe you want to make sure you get the best bang for your buck. Or, you want to choose the most sustainable packaging to reduce your plastic waste. No matter the reason, we can help. In this article, we will show you how many 16.9 oz bottles are in one, two and a half, three, and five-gallons.
A water bottle, in this context, means a single-serve size. We have chosen to use a 16.9-ounce bottle for our calculations as it is the most common option. To calculate how many 16.9 oz water bottles are in a gallon, we need to know how many ounces are in one gallon. We used a free online conversion calculator for liquid measurements to determine there are 128 ounces in one gallon. Divide 128 by 16.9, round up, and we now know that there are eight water bottles in a gallon.
There are 19 water bottles in two and a half gallons.
There are 23 water bottles in three gallons.
If you have a water cooler, you may be wondering how many 16.9oz bottles are in 5-gallons. We must first determine how many ounces are in 5 gallons. Since we already know that there are 128 ounces in one gallon, all we have to do is multiply by five which is 640. Since there are 640 ounces in 5 gallons, we then divide 640 by 16.9 to find there are 38 water bottles in a 5 gallon! Would you have guessed there are that many? To put it in perspective, most cases of water have 24 bottles. So, every 5-gallon has about a case and a half of 16.9-ounce water bottles.
For fun, let’s figure out how many Hydro Flasks are in a gallon. These calculations are based on a 32-ounce Hydro Flask, as that is a common size. Remember, there are 128 ounces in a gallon. All we need to do now is divide 128 by 32, and we find that there are four hydro flasks in a gallon or twenty on a 5-gallon!
