Roughly how many gallons of water are added to the pool at opening for a 24' pool? I have recently found out that my city will adjust the water bill but this was after I have filled it.

I'm taking a guess here, but I'll say 15,500 gallons.

Go stick a tape measure in and get the depth and plug it into poolmath, down at the bottom.

It depends on how full the pool was before you started to refill.

Can I guess too? 12,900 gallons. But seriously... tape measure and Pool Math... or regular math including 15 digits of pi and weighing a gallon of water yourself, if you're into that sort of thing. No... I've never done that. Nope.

OK I realize my pool holds a total of 15500 gallons. When I opened it this year the water was below the jet. I was just curious of a rough guess to how many gallons I actually put in it to bring it back up to 15500. I can measure from the jet down to get depth. However the center of my pool is dug deeper and I can't get to it at the moment.

Just stick the tape measure at the level it started at - below the jet - and measure to the water line. poolmath won't argue with you when you say your pool is only 9" deep or whatever.

Yup, measure up, not down to the floor.

That's ok, and I'm sorry.

You're looking at about 3300 gallons per foot of depth.
