    Pool volume?

    Getting ready to have this pool built. Can you smart people help me figure out how many gallons of water are in this pool? Will follow up with photos of the construction that starts next week.

    Thank you for the link. I'm just not sure how to calculate the grecian shape since the pool isn't exactly rectangular.

    I get 22,000 gallons. You can just break up the pieces then add them up.

    You Could try to call Joey Eiland???? Since he is the designer that would be my first stop unless you know someone who is good @ geometery.... You would calculate the volume for a rectangular pool 27'x15' long,then calculate volume for each end section as a rectangle and you would subtract the triangle volume for the corners. I am sure someone has an easier way though....

    Rob N, I asked Joey and he said it was around 22,000 but he would double check and get back to me.
