This is sold under ponds but I have been using it instead for my aquariums as it is much more economical than aquarium branded versions but does the same job, this bottle treats 36,000 litres. 8000 gallons that is a lot of water changes. 1ml treats 36 litres.

NT Labs Koi Care Chlor-Go is a dechlorinator which rapidly removes chlorine, chloramine and heavy metals such as zinc and lead from tap water, allowing fresh tap water to be added directly to the pond. Using Koi Care Chlor-Go is the ideal water care solution and avoids putting fish in any unnecessary danger from these potentially toxic substances.
NT Labs Chlor-Go is also a great copper remover and has a calming effect on fish being transported. It should always be used in transportation bags and isolation tanks regardless of whether or not tap water has been used.

 Chlor-Go contains special colloids to reduce shock during transportation and of newly introduced fish.
Dosage Rates:
- NT Labs Chlor-Go 250ml - Treats 9000 litres / 2000 gallons- NT Labs Chlor-Go 500ml - Treats 18000 litres / 4000 gallons- NT Labs Chlor-Go 1 Litre - Treats 36000 litres / 8000 gallons- NT Labs Chlor-Go 2.5 Litre - Treats 90000 litres / 20000 gallons

I can beat that...

I'm a big fan of this stuff

It's easier to store and I find dry weights easier to work with than trying to measure really small amounts of liquid. You need a fairly accurate set of scales but they can be picked up for not very much on ebay (I make my own aquarium fertiliser too).

I play safe and use 300mg/100l so 250g treats over 83000 litres.

It does look good value but the Seachem-Safe one has no mention of removing heavy metals, most importantly copper which can be lethal to shrimp and snails etc.

Indeed it doesn't claim to remove heavy metals, and copper does kill snails. But my understanding is that products that do claim to remove heavy metals only remove trace amounts, and those amounts are not large enough to harm anything anyway. If you have a real copper problem you'd need a more targeted solution.

I've come to believe that running your taps for a while before using the water and using reasonably cool water are the only precautions the majority of people need to take against introducing copper to the aquarium.

Those are just my thoughts, and obviously it's important to use something you have faith in. But having had a planted tank that was overrun with shrimp while I was actively adding fertilisers that contained copper the amount in tap water is not something I would generally worry about unless there was a good reason to.
