    Need a Math Wiz! Volume calculation on irregular shaped pool...

    I'm attaching a drawing of my pool, I am not an artist . As the Title states I need help getting a decent estimate on how many gallons my pool has. The top image is a top-down and the bottom image is a "side" view. To make it easier to read I type out the dimensions:
    36' long (every other line is roughly 2')
    7' wide @ 8'
    14' w @ 18'
    12' w @ 24'
    11' w @ 28'
    3' deep at the left
    6' deep roughly at 19'
    8' deep at right end

    Hope all of this makes sense...

    I'd guess 15-17k. Don't sweat it. Just pick a number and track your chemical additions and results and adjust the volume if you are always over or under shooting your targets. There is no reason to need to be exact.
