exists and is an alternate of .

No , above ground pools are different in that you can drain them , the reason you cannot drain an in ground pool is because the pool is built to have water pressure , and it is very stressful on the walls , I hope this answered your question :) .

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 ( Full Answer )

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 ( Full Answer )

How much water is in an above ground pool?

\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nGood Question? Well there are many different sizes of pools. You can find the volume of one by Multiplying the Length X Width X Depth . \n. \nSay a pool that is 10ft x 20ft x 8ft = 1600ft3\n. \nThere is 7.4805 Gallons per cubit foot. Therefore this pool would be ( Full Answer )

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 ( Full Answer )

How many gallons of water does it take to fill a 30' x 54 round above ground pool and what is the formula to figure it out?

Answer . Look, this is simple geometry...look it up...stop playing games, you need to know some of this stuff. I really must insist! Any Way.... \n. \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 ( Full Answer )

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

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 ( 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 ( Full Answer )

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. ( Full Answer )

How do you get your green cloudy above ground pool water clear?

Answer . Drain & refill it or you can try to shock it. I suggest putting leftover chlorine tablets in a bucket with holes in it in your pool for your off season to keep the water from greening or just emptying the water altogether.

How many gallons of water in a round 16feet above ground pool?

Round pool 16' diameter = 8' radius area = 8 X 8 X 3.14 = 201 square feet. Water is 8 gallons per cu ft so 201 sq foot has 8 gallons for each foot of depth. My 16' round pool is about 3.5 ft deep and contains about 5600 gallons. That water weighs 45,000 lb.

How many gallons of water is in a round 18 foot above ground pool?

It depends on how deep it is. Multiply distance from center to edge in feet by itself then multiply that number by 3.14 then multiply that by how many feet deep it is and finally multiply that number by 7.48 and that number is your gallons.
