1. ## Diamond Shaped pool

G'day folks. Everyone having a great summer?

I have a friend who purchased a home from an old jewelery store owner and the house has an old concrete DIAMOND SHAPED POOL. Any idea how I would determine how many gallons it holds? Impossible from what I see to measure W x L x D

Any help would be appreciated.

Break it down to triangles; Each triangle is (WxLxD)x1/2

You can do it chemically by taking a measurement of say PH and then dosing a specific change and then re-measuring for the result.

If you want to do it geometrically, you can still break the pool down in measurable areas (rectangles triangles squares) then multiply by the average depth. Or break in to several volumes and sum up geometric volumes as well.

Here is an interesting thread on calculating volumes http://www.troublefreepool.com/estim...me-t11772.html using chemicals and other ways to estimate that might be helpful.
