Noticed that profile signatures around here show total gallons in their pool. How can I calculate that for our pool?
Our pool is mostly rectangular, but has a spa above pool level in a corner (waterfalling into pool from spa). In the opposite corner, is a step into the deep end of our pool, and this corner is "cut off" from the rectangle.
I would probably just begin with this formula:
Length x width x ( ( depth of deep end + depth of shallow end) / 2)
To give me volume of our pool in cubic feet. Just need this converted to gallons. Would this suffice, or should my calculation be more precise for that when I share this information to local pool supply stores, this forum, etc?
Thanks in advance!
