    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!

    -Bryan

    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.

The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.
