# Pool Measurement Help Needed!

When I bought my home I was told that the pool was 15x30 at 12K gallons. Years later I measured myself to find out my pool is 14x28 so now I'm clueless about volume being the pool slopes into the deep end. I saw on another thread that Pool Math had (has?) a volume calculator, but I don't see it on my version, which is about a month old.

MEASUREMENTS

14x28 with beveled corners
Three steps in the shallow end
First 14 feet of length - 3.5 feet depth
Second 14 feet - gradual slope from 3.5 ft. to 6 ft. depth

I hope this helps.

That's a really in depth article. I just have to make sure I have enough of the required chemicals and I'm going to give it a shot. Thanks!

(3.5+6)/2 * 14 * 28 = 1862 ft3 = ~14k gallons

Good starting point for the test.

I'm not a mathematician, but could I ask how you arrived at this formula?
