Knowing just what your pool depth is is essential to ensuring proper water chemistry, filtration, pumping, and more. Below we’ve put together a comprehensive pool volume calculator guide that will help you measure the volume of your pool in gallons.
For a square shaped pool, measure one side. For a rectangular shaped pool, simply measure the longest and shortest side of the pool. For a circle, measure the diameter of the pool (i.e. right down the center).
Next is measuring the depth. Should your pool be all one depth, then you’ll only need to take one measurement. Should it have a depth that gradually increases, begin by measuring the most shallow end, and then the deep end.
Now you’re ready to begin using the pool volume calculator equations so that you can get the right pool chemistry. We’ll start with rectangular pools:
TIP: If your round pool is of different depths, measure the minimum height, the maximum height, add them together and then divide it by two.
