That's for 3 mg/L chloramine as chlorine. If you water contains less you need less and if you are treating less water you need less. Fortunately, it's easy to tell when you have used enough. The water stops smelling of chlorine.
I usually recommend crushing one tablet in the bottom of a glass and dissolving/suspending in a little water. Add some of this to the water to be treated, mix it in and let it sit for a minute or so. Now agitate the water. If you smell chlorine you need to add more of the tablet mix. If you don't or if you smell sulfur dioxide you don't need to add any more.
