In brief: Not clear

I assume you are suggesting that using a diluted form of tube feeding rather than full strength? The rationale for tube feeding, either gastrostomy or jejunostomy, is to provide calories, nutrients and fluids.
Diluted feeds will give adequate fluids but not enough calories and nutrients. If there is a financial reason, see your social worker for assistance.
