# Thread: Hello and just a quick question!

1. ## Hello and just a quick question!

I am trying to follow the rules but I am having trouble calculating the pool volume! I am gonna attempt to attach a pic with the measurements I took this morning by myself. I am sure I will have more questions as we get things settled into our new home and turn our attention to the yard. Now we are having a pool guy come and test our water for us and he is willing to teach us but I am a forum junkie and have been impressed with the answers you guys seem to provide!!!

Welcome to the forum! One of the Pros should be along soon but I would just divide the pool into sections (rectangles, squares, circles)then add the totals from that.

It's hard to tell exactly how the pool looks but from your measurements I get about 21,000 gallons for the pool and 750 gallons for the spa.

I calculate about 23000 gallons for pool and 750 for spa. I assumed your deep end rectangle was an average of 6 ft (to include a slope) and the rest of the pool was 4 ft. My math for pool (broke into two rectangles and one triangle): (14*20*6+0.5*7*14*4+17*18*4)*7.48=23189 gallons. My math for spa (assumed 3ft depth): (3*pi*3.25^2)*7.48=745 gallons.

bhall235,

With Linen and bama helping you, I would take their numbers to the bank! YOu could use 22k if you like so both of them will still like you!!

Seriously, I can't get to a calc but I would trust what those two say.

Hi BHall235 and welcome to TFP!

That's a really nice pool you have, congratulations on your new home!
P.S.
If you hang around here too much...you won't need a pool guy!

Welcome to TFP!

My calc came in right around bama and linen, actually a little higher than linen. I could say I calc'ed at 22 and look like a genius but probably no one would believe me.

You should probably take the 22 and 750 as good volume numbers.
