# What is the formula to calculate how many gallons of water in a pool?

1) Find the volume of the pool. You will probably use V=lwh. 2) You will have most likely found an answer in cubic feet, so now you can use the fact that 1 cubic foot = 7.4805… US gallons. Set up a proportion: 1 ft3/7.4805 gal = your answer in ft3/ X gal. To find X, multiply your pool's volume by 7.4805. * This procedure can serve as a good model, even if you're using the metric system or cubic inches instead of cubic feet. You will just need to look up the required conversion to gallons. * Quite often, pools are not perfect rectangular prisms so you will need to find the average depth when determining the "h" part of V=lwh.

# How do you calculate how many gallons your swimming pool holds?

a diificult question most olympic or high qoulity pools are just a deep end in which case you just multiply the lenghthxwidthxheight. However if it has a a sliding edge leadin…g into the deep end then you need to draw a diagram of this part of the pool and add enough to make it a straight edge. then calculate that volume. Next you need to find the percentage of the water you added. Then you must calculate the ratio of the water you added to your unit of measurment. then subtract that from your total. -a grade six student More simply put: length X width X average depth X 7.48 = total gal

# How many gallons of water to fill a olympic swimming pool?

660,000 gallons of water

# How many gallons of water in the average swimming pool?

The problem in answering this question is what is an average pool? I will give the best answer I can. I will use an average size home pool of 16 ft by 32 ft by 5 ft depth. The… equation is Length X Width X Average Depth X 7.5 (for gallons in a cubic foot) 16 X 32 X 5 X 7.5 equals 19,200 gallons of water. If we round up to 20,000 gallons we have an average amount for home pools. Between 20,000 and 30,000 gallons will cover most home pool installations for gallons of water. Some commercial pools are much larger and obviously contain much more water.

# How many gallons of water in a 10ft by 30inch swimming pool?

This is a question of volume. Assuming the pool is round and is 10 feet in diameter and 30 inches deep or high, we can apply the formula for volume of a cylindrical shape: V =… pi r2 h. Since the diameter is 10 feet, the radius is half that or 5 feet. To make sure our answer comes out right, we also have to use the same units of measurement for everything. So we will convert 5 feet to 5 x 12 = 60 inches. V = 3.14 x 602 x 30 = approximately 339,120 square inches of water. With 1728 square inches in a square foot (12 x 12 x 12), this comes out to about 196.25 square feet of water. Converting to gallons, there are about 7.48 gallons of water in a cubic foot of water, so 196.25 x 7.48 = about 1468 gallons of water in the pool.

# How many gallons of water are in an Olympic swimming pool?

About 660,000 gallons Dimensions of a regular Olympic-sized swimming pool are 2 meters deep, 25 meters wide, and 50 meters long. 25 x 50 = 1,2501,250 x 2 = 2,500So that mean…s there are 2,500 cubed meters in the Olympic-sized pool. A 1 meter cubed is equivalent to about 264 gallons.2,500 x 264 = 660,000 660,000 is your answer then.

# How many gallons of water in a typical household swimming pool?

My initial guess would be approximately15,000 gallons, but let's do some math and check how close my guess actually is. For starters, I must assume the dimensions of a typical… household pool. From my collective memory as a child, swimming in our pool, I have decided to estimate the pool with the following averaged dimensions, 30 x 15 x 6. The resulsting volume based on these dimensional assumptions is equal to 2,700 cubic feet of storage. Using a known unit conversion factor of 7.4805 gallons per cubic feet, I can then determine the actual quantity of water in a typical household pool. 2,700 cubic feet (x) 7.4805 gallons/cubic feet = 20,197 Gallons.

# How many gallons in a swimming pool?

width X height X the average of the depth X 7.5 just to give you an idea most pools in Florida are 10k - 15k gal (inground) above ground just use square pi's :-)

# What are the calculations for gallons of water for a round pool?

Answer To calculate your gallons measure the diameter and divide by 2. Take that measurement (radius R). R x R x 3.14 = Area … Area x depth x 7.5 = gallons Example: 24 ft. round and 4 ft. deep.= 24 divided by 2=12x12x.14= 452.16 x 4 (ft.deep) x 7.5=13564.8 gallons.

# How many gallons of water in standard us swimming pool?

# How do you calculate total number of gallons on a L-shaped swimming pool?

An L shaped swimming pool can be divided into two rectangular sections. If you can measure these sections, then you can get the volume by multiplying width times length times …depth. In the case of swimming pools there is an added complication, because the bottom of pools is usually sloping, rather than level. Just use an average depth, if the bottom slopes. This will not give you a completely accurate result, but it should still be reasonably accurate. Alternatively, fill the swimming pool and then transfer all the water into one gallon jugs, and when all the water is in jugs, you can count them. Of course, this is the hard way.
