# Thread: Question abut pool size

1. ## Question abut pool size

Every since we have been in our home I have been trying to figure out the size of our pool. When I did the initial measurements I came up with 22000, but everytime I would use 22000 as the size and put in my figures in the pool calculator I would add what it would say. Then I would test and it went over. So lately I have been using 20000 gallons as the size.

For instance tonight my FC was 3 and I wanted to raise it to 5. So based off of 20000 gallons to go from 3 to 5 you need to add 83 oz. So I just put in 80 since what I use to measure my bleach is in increments of 8 oz. So that was about 2 hours ago I added the chlorine. So I rechecked to see what my FC level is and it went from 3 to 7.5. If I adust the gallon size to 8600, I get my starting point of 3 and goal of 7.5 at 80 oz of bleach. Am I doing something wrong or what. I have measured my pool several times and I always get the same amount around 20-22K.

Thanks.

Are you plugging in the correct bleach %-as in 6%?

What are the dimensions and depth of the pool?

Or you may just have gotten a good batch of extra strong bleach .... can't imagine you are off by 10,000 gallons.

It is a very hard one to measure due to the odd size. I get about 27 feet long, and around 11-14 wide and 3 shallow-6 ft deep.

You may do better to measure it in segments, find the gallons for each segment, and the add up the gallons.

Your pool is probably around 12,000 to 13,000 gallons.

Using the PoolCalculator & your numbers, I am also getting a much smaller pool volume.

How did you get 22,000 gallons?
