In the USA

1,000,000 ppm / 17.1181 US grains/ppm = 58,417.7 grains

58,417.7 grains / 15.43236 grains/gram = 3,785.4 grams

3,785.4 grams / 453.6 grams/pound = 8.345 pounds

8.345 pounds = the weight of 1 USA gallon of water


In the UK

1,000,000 ppm / 14.2538 UK grains/ppm = 70,156.73 grains

70,156.73 grains / 15.43236 grains/gram = 4,546.08 grams

4,546.08 grams / 453.6 grams/pound = 10.022 pounds

10.022 pounds = the weight of 1 UK (or Imperial) gallon of water
