The answer depends on the shape of the pool. If the pool is of uniform depth, then its volume is the surface area times the depth. If the surface area is measured in square feet, and the depth is measured in feet, then the volume is in cubic feet.

1 cubic foot = 6.2288 Imperial gallons.

How do you calculate how many gallons are in a pool?

You measure the dimensions of the pool using some measurement units (feet, yards, metres). Then, using geometry, you would need to calculate the volume of the pool in some appropriate units (cubic feet, cubic yards, cubic metres). these measures can then be converted to gallons using standard conversion factors. However, you need to be careful whether you want US gallons or Imperial gallons since these are not the same - one more reason why the "customary" system of measurement is rubbish and near obsolete.
