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 much algaecide do you put into 24ft round pool?

First you have to figure the number of gallons in the pool. Go
to: www.poolsandspachemicals.co.uk. Fill in your pool information
and the site will calculate the number of gallons. Next examine the
instructions on your algaecide and it will tell you how many ounces
of algaecide to use per 10,000 gallons of water per week.

###### Asked in Swimming Pools, Volume

### 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.
