# Do you have to keep water in an above ground pool year round?

# How many gallons of water are in a 15-foot round above-ground pool?

The calculation is: Diameter x Diameter x Depth X 5.9 = Number of Gallons For example: For a 15-foot round pool with a water depth of 3 ft: 15x15x3x5.9 = 3,982 gallons. Since you did not specify the depth of the water, I will provide an answer for a couple of likely depths below. Please no…te that this is the ACTUAL water depth NOT the height of the pool wall (the water is usually around 6 inchs lower than the wall height). 36 in depth: 3,982 gallons 42 inch depth: 4,646 gallons 48 inch depth: 5,310 gallons ...

# How many gallons of water are in a 21' x 52' round above-ground swimming pool?

Answer .
First, figure the surface area. 21 ft diameter is 10.5 foot radius. Convert to inches, since that is easier for me. 10.5 ft is 126 inches. Area is Pi ( about 3.14159) times R squared. So 3.14159 x 126 x 126 = roughly 49,876 square inches. That is the surface area of the bottom of the po…ol.\n.
\nNow multiply that times the height of the water. I will use 52 inches, though you won't fill it completely up to the rim. 49,876 times 52 = about 2,593,552 cubic inches of water.\n.
\nOne gallon of water takes up 231 cubic inches. So divide 2,593,552 by 231, and you get 11, 227.5 gallons. Roughly speaking. Depends on how high you fill it.\n.

# How do you determine the volume of your round above ground pool?

Answer .
\nMeasure the diameter, that is the distance from one side directly to the other side as you cross the center. Take that distance and divide it by two to get the radius. Then measure the height of the pool, i.e. how far it measures from top to bottom along the side. Apply the formula pie… x radius squared x height. I.e. take the radius measurement and multiply it by itself (square it) and then multiply that number by 3.14 (pie) and then multiply that number by the height. Your final number will be the volume in whatever units you measured the height and radius, i.e. inches cubed or cubic inches if your radius and height were in inches..

\nTotal Volume of a cylinder is Radius Squared, times PI, times Height of Cylinder.\n.
\n180 inches(the radius) times itself(that's Squared) times… PI (Pi is 3.14) gives you the total area of a circle. The Area multiplied by the Height gives you the volume.Thus...(PI)r2 x H = V\n.
\nGood Lord...\nYou do the Math. \nRecommend. http://library.thinkquest.org/20991/geo/solids/html.
Answer .
The first response will get you the volume of the pool in cubic inches, but not gallons. 15 foot radius squared times Pi = 706.5 sqft. Assuming that the x 54 means 54 inches deep, that's 4.5 feet and 706.5 times 4.5 = 3179.25 cubic feet. There are approximately 7.5 gallons in a cubic foot, so 3179.25 times 7.5 = 23,844.375 gallons..

# How many gallons of water are in a 24 ft round above ground pool?

Answer .
That would depend on to what depth you filled the pool. When you figure that one out, I am certain you can calculate the number of gallons required.\nDes Perado.
Answer .
\nWe were told our 54"deep 24' round pool would hold 13,000 gallons of water. Ours was dug out to 6' in the cen…ter (approximately 1/2 the width of the pool) and took 15,736 gallons to fill. By the way, we used the garden hose which took 1 1/2 days (turned off while we slept) and cost about $70 on our water bill. Having water brought in was quoted at $200 for 7,000 gallons, which would have required 2 loads. Our municipality recommends if you fill your pools/spas with the garden hose, take a meter reading before beginning and at the end, then call them with the numbers. This way, if your water and sewer bills are combined, you don't get a humongous sewer bill. They only charge for the water usage. Good luck! ( Full Answer )

# How much water is in a 18' by 4' round above ground pool?

Round pools .
An 18-foot round pool has a radius of 9 feet. The area is Pi*r 2 = 254.5.\n.
\nThe water height is about four inches below the wall height, so the height is 3'8", which equals 3.67 feet. the volume, therefore is 254.5 * 3.67 = 933 cubic feet.\n.
\nA cubic foot of water is equal… to 7.48 gallons, so your pool contains 933 * 7.48 = 6979 gallons of water. ( Full Answer )

# Can you convert an above ground 24' round pool into an oval above ground pool?

Answer is no You can remove a round one and install an oval after, of course, you make necessary adjustments to the ground--making the ground level in an oval instead of a circle. The only things you might be able to re-use from the round pool are the pump/filter, ladder, skimmer and return fitting…s, and your cleaning equipment. Round pools are built quite differently and are not meant to turned into ovals. Theyndon't have the supports required, whether that be braces or straps. So, basically the answer is 'no'.

# How many gallons of water are in a 15 feet round above ground swimming pool that is 4 feet deep?

You can use the volumetric equations. To break them down simply:.
Volume = Width * Height * Depth.
Width * Height = Area.
Area of a circle = Pi * radius 2 .
Okay, so now that we have remembered the formulas, we can plug in the numbers:.
Radius = 15/2 or 7.5 feet.
so Area = 3.14159265 (Pi) * 7.…5 2 which equals 176.715 sqare feet.
Now, Volume = Area * Depth, so 176.7145868 (the area) * 4 = 706.858347 cubic feet..
1 gallon = 0.13368 cubic feet, so take 706.858347/0.13368 to get the answer:.
A 15 foot round above ground swimming pool that is 4 feet deep will hold 5,287.6676 gallons of water. ( Full Answer )

# How many gallons of water are in a pool that is 21ft round and 4 feet high above ground pool?

# Help with opening a new above ground pool to keep the water from turning a cloudy brownish color after 3 tries?

Answer .
It would help to know just what you are doing to or with the water. Do you have a filter and pump? Are you using it as required and recommended? First, start be purchasing a quart or two of a water clarifier or a product to control iron in swimming pools. Your local pool store will di…rect you to the right product. Add this product to the water - follow directions on label. Start and run your pump/filter for 24 hrs. before you add any other chemical to the pool. Test the water with a reliable test kit for pH level and adjust if needed. Now that the water has filtered for the stated period, add in small amounts, (a qt. at a time) 10% or 12% liquid chlorine. If after the first quart of chlor. there is no reaction or brown cloud forming you may add the balance of the gallon of chlorine. Note: you did not state the size of the pool so you may not need the full gallon. Now add the required amount of conditioner or chlorine stabilizer :: :: formula: 5# per 10K of water. Test for conditioner level after about two weeks have past. Goal for conditioner=50 ppm. You will have to test for cond. levels about every two months or so to maintain the 50 - 80 ppm required to hold the chlorine thru summer. Maintain chlor levels of 1.5 to 3.0. Higher if increased bather load anticipated. Also increase run time on filter if bather load is also anticipated. Normal run time on filter should be about 8 -12 hrs - summer. More if bather load is increased. Don't forget to clean the filter about every 30 days or best yet when the pressure on the top of the filter goes about 5 to 8#'s above the "clean filter" pressure. (If it starts out clean at 12# then clean at or about 18#'s) Ken ( Full Answer )

# How do you keep rainwater off your above ground pool cover?

Answer .
Try putting an inflatable innertube or something like it underneath the cover. That can help move rainwater off the cover..
