    There is no relation to the size of the kit and the amount you can plate, because the plating comes from the anodes. The solution will not need to be replenished.

    Each anode plates about 30 sq ft. Each kit comes with 2. The 15 gal kit comes with bigger anodes that will plate about 100 sq ft each.

    The only exception to this is the real chrome plating in the Triple Chrome kit. There the anodes are permanent and the solution depletes. However, you will get about 1000 sq ft of chrome for every gallon of solution, so in reality, I doubt you'll ever need to replenish that either.
