Is it possible to calculate volume if my pool is irregular

Is it possible to use the Pool Calculator to calculate the pool volume if my pool is irregularly shaped (i.e., shaped like a bean)? I looked at old pool documents, which states that the perimeter of the pool is 80 feet and the depth of the pool is 8.5 feet. Will the "round pool" estimation work for my pool? Is there any other way I can calculate this?

I want to put some chlorine into the pool, but I'm not sure how much.

Please help this newbie. :)

I'd use the oval calculation to start and test again after the addition to test the volume estimate.

Try a search for pool volume calculator. One will give you irregular shapes and how to calculate. I used one but unfortunatly I didnt save it.
Sorry.

Welcome to tfp, Car_e :wave:

If you want measure your pool, you can post the dimensions and we can help estimate the volume. A drawing would be great, but a picture might work too.
