How to Determine Pool Perimeter and Capacity
To Determine Pool Perimeter | |
Round Pools - 3.14 x Diameter | |
Oval Pools - 3.14 x A = (B-A) x 2 | |
To Determine Pool Capacity | |
1). Determine surface area | |
Round Pools - R x R x 3.14 | |
Kidney Pools - (A + B) x L x .45 | |
Rectangle Pools - L x W | |
2) Multiply square
footage by average depth to determine the approximate cube of the
pool.
(Example: (3 ft. shallow end + 8 feet deep end) divided by 2 =
5.5 feet)
So, if we have a pool with a surface area of 512 feet, the cube would be 2,816 ft. (512 x 5.5 - 2816)
3) Multiply the
pools approximate cube by 7.5 (gallons of water in one cubic
foot)
Our pool with a cube od 2,816 ft would contain approximately
21,120 gallons (2,816 x 7.5 = 21,120)
