Wasn't sure where to put this topic, so I figured this is the best place since this can cause you issues with balancing your water.
We have a Leisure Pool Riviera 30. I've been trying to get an accurate volume for the pool. When we had it installed, we had a water truck drop about 5500 gallons in the pool. I then added about 3000 gallons by hose (And used my water meter.) I'm sure the truck wasn't exact, nor was my meter as people were home using water.
Anyway, everything I've ever seen on the Internet (And some documentation) stated the pool took 14,300 gallons. So how is it mine is full at ~8500 gallons? My installer said he thought 10k was correct. I called Leisure Pools directly and was referred to a gentlemen who's job for the past few weeks has been filling and draining pools to determine the ACCURATE volume.
Apparently, the previous management (If you know the Leisure story) had some incorrect information on their site and literature. He said 14,300 is absolute wrong, and he came up with 8300, which is about my number. I asked how it could be that far off, and he surmises that the previous folks simply assumed the pool was a rectangle, which it's far from. Sure enough, when I do a rough rectangle estimate, I'm in the ball park of 14,300 gallons.
So if you have a Leisure Pool, just a heads up that you MIGHT have an inaccurate volume that you're basing stuff on. If there's interest, I could see if I could get to him again and get a list and the volumes that he has, if he's willing to send that info out (Don't see why not, but it's not on their site, at least not yet, so. . .)
