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

3. ## Re: How many tons of water in my pool

yea, lol,
How many gallons in the pool?
I can convert it to tons later, thanks

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.

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.

I will try to measure it tonight. Thanks

On another note....is that water clear? We talking about needing a SLAM here?

9. ## 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

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.
