This question is not easily answered because Olympic size only refers to the width and length, not depth. So variation in depth can greatly affect the answer. I happened to do maintainance for a university olympic sized pool years ago. It was 3 ft or 1m at the shallow end an 12ft or 4m at the deep end. It came in at just under 1/2 million gallons.

### How many gallons of water are in an Olympic swimming pool?

About 660,000
gallons
Dimensions of a regular Olympic-sized swimming pool are 2 meters
deep, 25 meters wide, and 50 meters long.
25 x 50 = 1,250
1,250 x 2 = 2,500
So that means there are 2,500 cubed meters in the Olympic-sized
pool. A 1 meter cubed is equivalent to about 264 gallons.
2,500 x 264 = 660,000
660,000 is your answer then.
