If you're lucky, then your pool is rectangular and equally deep everywhere. In that case, take a long ruler and measure the length and the width. Stick the ruler in the water until it touches the bottom, and use that to measure the depth. Multiply the three numbers together and you'll get the volume. Unfortunately, you'll get the number in cubic feet or cubic meters, and you probably want it in liters or gallons. How to convert: Cubic meters to liters: multiply by 1000. Cubic meters to gallons: multiply by 264. Cubic feet to liters: multiply by 28. Cubic feet to gallons: multiply by 7.5. If you're not so lucky, your pool is deeper in some places than in others. Hopefully, the bottom is at least flat: if it is, then measure the depth at two opposite corners and average - do everything else as in the other case.

It all depends in the relative humidity of the air at the time. If you suspect that you are loosing more water then you should. Put a bucket of water next to the pool or even better on the top step of the pool to keep it the same temperature. Mark the water level in it. then mark the water level of the pool. Leave them both alone for a couple of days. Measure the amount of water that has evaporated out of the bucket. if it is les then the amount evaporated out of the pool then you have a leak some where Either in the pool or the piping or filtration system.

Pool floor drain is plugged?

The pool floor drain you are talking about is probably not a drain but a hydrostatic valve which is there to allow water in from underneath your pool if your pool is empty or partially empty and there is an excessive amount of ground water around the bottom of the pool. these will stop the pol from floating in ground water by allowing the ground water into the pool rather then destroying your pool by lifting it out of the ground.
