I had an inground pool built in 2005. The plan measurements say 32’ length, 16’ width, with depth of 4’x6’x4’ (deeper in the middle) with a more shallow sun bathing area at one end. The plan says pool capacity is 12,840, but when I try to calculate, mine comes out much higher. I need to know approximate gallons to add chemicals correctly. What do you think?

Calculating a 4.5' average depth it's 17.2K and at a 5' depth 19.2K gallons.
Utilize chemical additions to dial in your water volume by testing, adding measured material and retesting.
