    Is my math correct?

    If the pool is approx 16'x32' grecian and the level rises 1"...

    That one inch of water adds:

    16x32x.083 = ~ 42.5 cu feet x 7.48 gallons in 1 cu foot = ~ 318 gallons

    Aside from the pool not being exactly rectangular, is my math approximately correct?

    Thanks.

    That is what I get too. When you say it isn't completly rectangular, do you mean the corners are "cut". I shouldn't make much difference unless this is big "cut"/chamfer.

    thanks.

    yeah, cut just a small amount like a typical grecian style pool.
