# Thread: Help! need to know how many gallons my pool is???

1. ## Help! need to know how many gallons my pool is???

Hello everyone, thanks for any help in advance.

Just moved into a new place with a Roman style rectangle pool and was told it is 35,000 gallons. When I try to calculate the size of my pool it comes up alot smaller. Just wanted to ask if Im doing it right? I used this method to get my results:

Rectangle Pool - Average Depth x Length x Width x 7.48 = Volume in Gallons

Heres my pool:

Average Depth - 5 feet
Length - 27 feet
Width - 14.5 feet

5 x 27 x 14.5 x 7.48 = 14,642

So is my pool only around 15,000 gallons or is my math wrong? Any help greatly appreciated!

Welcome to TFP!

I got similar to your calculations. 35k is a pretty ridiculously bad estimate.

Welcome to tfp, powellb88

I'm with you guys, I too get about 14600...and it might be even smaller if you long dimension goes out to the ends of the circular extensions that typical romans have...post a pic of you pool and we might be able to come up with a better estimate.
