Calculating Above Ground Pool Volume

Calculating Above Ground Pool Volume



Before you can determine the correct dosage of any chemical you’re going to add, you need to know how many gallons your pool holds.  Make all your measurements in feet.  Example: use 12.5 instead of 12′ 6″.

1. Figure out the average depth of your pool.

(deep end depth) feet + (shallow end depth) feet = _______ feet / 2 = (average depth) feet


2. Calculate your pool’s capacity using one of the formulas below.

Pool Shape
» Rectangular or square:  (length) feet x (width) feet x (average depth) feet x 7.5 = (pool capacity) gallons 
» Oval:  (maximum length) feet x (maximum depth) feet x (average depth) feet x 5.9 = (pool capacity) gallons
» Circular:  (diameter) feet x (diameter) feet x (average depth) feet x 5.9 = (pool capacity) gallons
