Measure 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. OR, if you don't want to do THAT, you will need two things. 1. $5 an hour 2. A mathematician Here's a somewhat simpler formula which uses the dimensions in feet and gives the answer in gallons: diameter X diameter X depth X 5.9 = volume in gallons This and formulas for other shapes can be found here:

How many gallons of water are in an above ground 28 foot diameter x 48 inch deep above ground pool?

Your round pool has a volume of 2463 cubic ft. The formula to achieve this is Pi * (radius squared) * depth of 4 ft. Converting this to U.S. Gallons comes to 18,425 gallons.

Can you make an oval pool into a round pool.. Are the ground wall bar tracks the same that came with the oval to design a round from it?

Due to the differences in engineering and the parts involved, there really is no way to convert an oval above ground pool into a round pool.

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

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 :) .

What is ground round?

Ground round was a term used years ago referring to the leanest ground beef. The hind leg in beef is called the round (Top round, bottom round, eye of round and sirloin tip). Today if you were to read a recipe asking for ground round it does not mean you actually have a butcher ground a round roast, it just means that you need 4%-7% fat ground beef. Likewise ground sirloin would be 10%-15% fat and ground chuck would be 20% fat.

What is the difference between ground beef and ground round?

"Round" is a cut from a particular spot on the cow, it is often cut for steak "round steak" or for roast" - "ground round" is a more expensive blend, if I remember correctly it is not particular fatty. "Ground beef" if just that - beef cut from anywhere, it can have fat added or come from a fatty area making it 80% or 90% fat by weight/volume (or more, or less depending on the fat content).

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

Answer is noYou 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 fittings, 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'.

What size above ground pool is 24ft round?

24 foot round pool would be 24 feet across from the middle of the pool basically measure the diameter of the pool.

Why does the ground have to be level for above ground pools?

So that the water doesn't drain out of the pool and so the pool doesn't fall over. I agree with the answer above but I have a more detailed answer. In a round above ground pool the water puts even pressure on the pool walls, and if the ground is not level one side will get more pressure. The imbalance will cause the pool to collapse under the strain.
