The question that everyone wants & needs to know is, "how big is my Pool?"

Here is the answer!

Knowing the proper number of gallons or liters in your swimming pool is very important for successful chemical care & treatment.  And that goes along with first knowing the actual pool dimensions! Oh, we could tell you stories of 50,000 gallon aboveground pools... but here's what you're really after:

Aboveground Pools  -  based on 52" wall height pools, flat bottom (ACTUAL average approximate water depth of 44"; this is the true fill, not the capacity)

15 ft. Rnd 5,000 18,927 177
18 ft. Rnd 7,200 27,255 255

24 ft. Rnd 12,800 48,453 453

15 ft x 30 ft Oval 10,000 37,854 410
18 ft x 33 ft Oval 13,000 49,210 550

Inground Pools - based on a typical, rectangular (2 ft. radius corners), vinyl liner construction (ANSI / NSPI standard Type 1 Pool, 16x32 and larger; smaller pools are Type 0 with deep depth of 5'6") , with average wall height of 42", shallow end water fill of 36" depth and a deep end water fill depth of 7'6" (90").  Gallonage also takes typical piping & filtration system (100 lineal feet of pipe plus filter capacity) into consideration.

20 ft x 40 ft 33,000 124,918 800
20 ft x 44 ft 36,700 138,924 880

Gallonage Calculations (US gallons):
Rectangular Pools - length x width x average depth x 7.5
Round, Oval & Free-form Pools - aver. length x aver. width x aver. depth x 5.9

Convert to Liters:  Gallons multiplied by 3.7854 = total liters
