How many gallons are in an Olympic size swimming pool?
This question is not easily answered because Olympic size only refers to the width and length, not depth. So variation in depth can greatly affect the answer. I happened to do maintainance for a university olympic sized pool years ago. It was 3 ft or 1m at the shallow end an 12ft or 4m at the deep end. It came in at just under 1/2 million gallons.

660,000 gallons of water
The definition of an Olympic size swimming pool is 10 lanes each 2.5 meters wide, however to prevent the outside lanes being disadvantaged by having to compete with the waves …bouncing off the sides of the pool only the middle 8 lanes are ever used.
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.
4385964.912 pints Method: 50m length 25m width 2m depth 50x25x2=2,500 cubed (3) 1l= 0.001m cubed (3) so 2500x1000 = 2,500,00 L The volume of 1 pint is 0.4731764736 1 pint= 0.…57 L
Since 1 gallon equals 90,840 drops and 1 Olympic sized swimming pool has 660,430 gallons, there are 59,993,461,200 drops in an Olympic size swimming pool.
If the pool is 50m by 25m and is 2m deep then it will have 2,500 kilolitres of water in it. It's volume would be 2,500 metres cubed:) 50m by 25m by 2m is the standard Olympic …swimming pool measurement:) hope that helps:)
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 :-)
There are five pools that meet all Olympic standards, being 50m by 25m, in Leeds, Sheffield, Cardiff, Glasgow and Sunderland. Four more are under construction in Bangor, Birmi…ngham, London and Plymouth. Therre are a number of other 50m pools, but they are not 2m wide.
A true Olympic -- or world swimming competition -- pool is 50 meters, or 164 feet, long, but the width and depth can vary. A pure competition pool might be 50m x 25m wide x …3m deep (or approximately 164ft x 82ft x 11ft). Such a pool would hold about 148,000 cubic feet, or about 1.1 million gallons. However, non-swimmers often refer to a 25 yard "short course" pool as an 'Olympic pool'. Such community and school pools often range from 110,000 to 230,000 gallons, depending on design.
There are 47 olympic size swimming pools in Australia. Alex the swimmer.
2,500 m3 (88,000 cu ft) or 2,500,000 L (550,000 imp gal/660,000 US gal) minimum, depending on depth...
Size of an Olympic swimming pool is very huge. It is used to held different swimming sports. Roughly it is the size of 88,000 cubic meter.
Olympic swimming pools use about 650000 gallons of water, so if you're trying to shock one using 10% liquid chlorine, you would need about 200 gallons of liquid shock - …or if you're only adding choline as a primary sanitizer, not as a shock, you'd use about 65 gallons.
In a normal Olympic Pool there are 10 lanes. I'm not too sure what a semi Olympic pool is!
