    New Complete Novice and 1st Question

    Here I am and so glad I found this forum. You know nothing John Snow. This is me! Bought a house with a pool this winter. Feeling intimidated but ordered my TFP recommended water test kit, and started reading through pool school.

    1. I am trying to track down all the info for my profile signature. I think my pool is kidney shaped but it is wider in the shallow end and not as wide in the deep end. Is there another name for this shape?

    2. I have no clue how to figure out how big my pool is. See number 1. It is not a uniform shape. Do I just measure L x W at the widest parts? And how do I figure out how many gallons it is?

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    You can start with the width, length and average depth to make an estimate of the volume.
    As you maintain the chemistry, you can usually dial in the volume a little better depending on if you are hitting your targets.
