How many gallons of water does it take to fill a 24-foot by 4-foot swimming pool?
The basic formula to figure water volume or gallons of water for a specific size say 20 x 40 are as follows 20 x 40 = 800 x average depth(say 5') = 4000 x 7.5(gallons per cubic foot) = 30,000
In answer to your question you did not give enough information. Is it 24ft diameter? If so the formula is radius squared x 3.14 x 4(average depth) x 7.5 Or 12 squared(144) x 3.14(452.16) x 4(a.d.)1808.64 x 7.5 = 13,564.8 gallons

The formula for figuring out the amount of gallons is on the back of pool chemical containers. I am not sure what the formula is for an oval. Check here: http://www.poolspa.c…om/calculator/ If the pool floor slopes uniformly from end to end, the average depth can be found by adding the deepest and shallowest depth measurements and dividing the results by two. If the pool's dimensions are in feet, the volume will be in cubic feet. One cubic foot of water equals 7.5 gallons. Example: The water volume of a pool 60 ft. long, 30 ft. wide and that slopes in depth from 3 ft. to 10 ft. is as follows: 30 x 60 x ((10 + 3)/2) = 11,700 cubic ft. of water 11,700 x 7.5 = 87,750 gallons
Answer . The area equation for a circle is pi times the radius squared. And then multiply that result by the depth to get cubic feet.\n. \nLet's say you are talking abou…t a pool 24' in diameter and 3' deep.\n. \nSo, half of 24 is 12, which is the radius length. And 12 squared (12 X 12) is 144. That result times 3.14, which is pi, equals 452 square feet of surface area. That 452 square feet area times the three feet of depth results in about 1,356 cubic feet of water.\n. \nSince one cubic foot of water is about 7.48 gallons, then the 1,356 cf of pool space times 7.48 gallons equals 10,143 gallons of water to fill it.

Here is the formula for calculating gallons of water to fill a swimming pool Calculate Your Pool's Water Volume Overview: In order to figure out proper doses of chemic…als for your pool, you need to determine how many gallons of water it holds. To do that, you need to know four different numbers: the length, width, average depth, and a multiplier that determines gallons. Here is the formula: Length * Width * Average Depth * Multiplier = Gallons Determine the Multiplier: Rectangle, square, or free-form pool: multiplier = 7.5. Round or Oval pool: multiplier = 5.9 Determine the Average Depth: To determine the average depth in a pool where the bottom slopes, measure the shallow end, the deep end depth. Add them together and divide by two (2). Example: Shallow End = 2'. Deep End = 10' 2' + 10' = 12'; 12'/2 = 6' Average Depth
Need a third dimenstion for volume . A third dimension is required, but you can figure about 900 gallons for every foot in the third dimension.
Gallons in a 21 x 4 round pool . Pi x r squared x depth x 7.481 (gallons per cubic foot). 3.14 x 10.5 x 10.5 x 4 x 7.481 = 10,359 gallons
Answer . You have to take the length of the pool in feet multiplied by the width of the pool in feet multiplied by the depth of the pool in feet and multiply by 7.5 to fin…d the approx gallon capacity

A 12-ft round pool with depth of 2 ft has a capacity of 1,692.2 gallons of water.
Answer (1) 180 US / 149 UK gallons per each foot of depth for a rectangular pool.. 141 US / 117 UK gallons per each foot of depth for an oval pool.. Answer (2) A UK …gallon is 0.160543 cubit feet, and a US gallon is 0.13368 cu ft. . Therefore:- A circular pool 8 ft in diameter (radius 4ft) has a surface area of pi x r2 = 3.1459 x 16 = 50.26 sq ft. The cubic capacity, to the brim, is 50.26 x 3 ft = 150.8 cu ft., which, divided by the cu. ft of a gallon, equals 939 UK gallons, or 1,128 US gallons.. A square pool, with 8ft sides (64 sq ft) and 3 ft deep has a cubic capacity of 64 x 3 = 192 cu. ft., which, again divided by the cu. ft of a gallon, equals 1,196 UK gallons, or 1,436 US gallons.. (calculations rounded).
Use this formula: Diameter x Diameter x Average Depth x 5.9 = Total Gallons
It depends. How deep is the pool?
\nDepending on how deep you fill it your pool is in the 10,000 to 12,000 gallon area...\nYou need to shoot for the mid range and do not have to be totally accurate when\ndecid…ing on chemical amounts. Enjoy your summer!
2,500 m 3 (88,000 cu ft) or 2,500,000 L (550,000 imp gal/660,000 US gal) minimum, depending on depth  ...
volume= Radius squared X height X Pi (3.14159). R=7.5' (1/2 of a 15' diameter). 7.5 X 7.5=56.25. H=3.5'. 56.25 X 3.5 X 3.14159 = 618.5 cubic feet. 1 cubic foot = 7.48 gal…lons. 618.5 X 7.48 = 4,626.38 gallons
Zero gallons. No gallons can fit into a plane, no matter what units you are using, since gallons are units of volume and must be expressed in three dimensions. Now, if you …were to talk about a pool of 18' (that little ' denotes the measurement unit called _feet_ in standard English) by 52' by perhaps 10' deep, we'd have the ability to calculate an answer.
