1. ## pool volume help

Trying to get volume, pool is 20feet by 40feet with average depth of 5feet. I get 30000gal 40x20x5x7.5(seems high right?) is this correct or should it be in cubic feet or?

30k sounds about right according to pool calculator.

3. ## Re: pool volume help

It is actually 7.48 cubic ft/gallon, but that is plenty close enough. So, if your average depth is right, you have it.

I agree with those guys. And, just for comparison, my pool is a couple of feet bigger than yours with about the same average depth and it seems to be about 36,000 gallons.

Thanks guys. Im still alittle confused, when one says "volume" it means the gallons correct?
For example, what is the volume of a pool that is 40'x20' with 5' average depth?

a- 20,000 gallons
b- 4,000 cubic feet
c- 4,000 square feet
d- something that im not getting... lol

D) It is 30,000 gallons. For pools, you use gallons.

Yes, almost always it is spoken in gallons for volume in pools and most other things here in the US.

So, it works out as 20X40X5= 4000 Cubic ft. There are 7.48 Gallons of water per cubic ft, so 4000X7.48= 29920 gallons.

Capiche?
