Click here to calculate the volume of your pool.

In order to figure out proper doses of chemicals for your pool, you need to determine how many gallons of water it holds. To do that, you need to know four different numbers: the length, width, average depth, and a multiplier that determines gallons.  Here is the formula:

FORMULA:
Length * Width * Avg. Depth * 7.48 (gals. in cubic foot) = Pool Volume in Gals.

NOTE:  Average depth is calculated by taking the measurement of shallow and deep ends of your pool; add these figures and divide by 2.  For example, a pool is 3 feet deep on shallow side and 6 feet deep in the deep end.

3 feet + 6 feet = 9 feet

9 / 2 = 4.5 feet Average Depth

For those with unique pool shapes such as kidney, oblong, triangular or circular try using this Pool Volume Calculator to determine your Pool Volume.  Still have questions?  Give us a call or send us an email….we’re always ready to answer any of your questions.
