How do you determine the volume of your round above ground pool?
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

uses the dimensions in feet and gives the answer in gallons:
diameter X diameter X depth X 5.9 = volume in gallons This and
