    A gallon weighs 8.345 pounds. How many gallons in the pool?

    I'd just average everything, so 38x16 for the calculator. You don't have depth in there, average that too. http://www.troublefreepool.com/calc.html

    You can adjust based on how it goes with chemical additions and retesting.

    Re: How many tons of water in my pool

    I dont know, I think my pool kinda like this:
    half size is shallow(like 1.3m), half size is deep.(don't know how deep, I think it should be standard). Yea, I want to get know it, and based on it to add chemical.

    Thank you very muchPool.jpg

    Can you use the brush pole and estimate? There is no "standard" deep end.

    Re: How many tons of water in my pool

    yea, you are right, it not good, I tried to use some chemical(from pool store recommend), but not so clear. This is why I need figure out how many gallons, then slam my pool.

    By the way, any good productions to recommend for slam in GTA(Great Ontario Area - Canada)? I can't find those things on my local stores.

    Thanks

    Re: How many tons of water in my pool

    update, I checked,
    the deepest place is around 260cm, 8.5ft.

    then, I think it should be 16 * 14 * 4.25 + 16 * 30 * 8.5 = 952 + 4080 = 5032 (Cubic foot) = 37642 gallon

    37642 gallon , is this right? Thanks,

    I get 27.3k. 38x16 and average depth of 6 in the pool calculator. Start with 30k and adjust based on what you see with adding and testing. FC is easy to use, Measure, add 2 fresh bottles of a known %, test 30 minutes later, and play with pool calculator until it matches.
