Thread: Accurate Volume Calculation

    Accurate Volume Calculation

    Pool diagram attached. I calculate 2,816 cu. ft. x 7.5 gallons per cu. ft. = 21,120 gallons - assuming 6" below liner track for water level. Am I accurate or am I missing something. I just found the diagram this morning.

    if you're into that kind of stuff, Google Sketchup will allow you to represent your pool in a line drawing, and use a freely available plugin to instantly calculate the volume in g/l.

    Just a thought.

    21,000 is certainly a good enough estimate to use when calculating the amount of chemical to add. Remember that you can never get an exact answer since the water level varies.
