How many bottles of water equal a gallon? The easiest and the simplest answer to this question is:
- 7.57 bottles of water according to the U.S gallon.
- 9.47 bottles of water according to the U.K gallon.
Now, the question here arises that how did I get this answer so accurately?
For this, I will like to introduce you two very simple methods that can help you in calculating whenever you want to:
The U.S gallon system: According to this system, a single gallon of water equals to 128 ounces.
Step 1: You have to discover the ounces of the bottle.
Step 2: As the standard of what a gallon equals is 128, so you have to divide128 by the number of ounces.
Step 3: That will be the answer to your question. For example, the standard bottle size is 500ml which contains 16.9 oz of water in it. So you will simply divide 128 by 16.9 and get this 7.57 water bottles in the answer, which is equal to 3 litres.
The U.K gallon system: This system presents that 1 gallon is equal to 160 oz.
Step 1: Again, check the ounces for which you are making calculations.
Step 2: This time, you will divide the 160 by the number of the ounces.
Step 3: Here is the example for again the standard size of water bottle having 16.9 ounces. Now if you divide 160 by 16.9, you will get 9.57 water bottles or 4 litres of water.
So, if you want to make a water drinking routine, you can take help from these calculations.

The glasses can have different types and sorts also. So, you can calculate gallon by using any glass as a standard. For example, a pint glass contains 16 ounces and by dividing it to 128, we will get 8 glasses of water as an answer. So you need to take 8 glasses if you have a pint glass.
