You can use the volumetric equations. To break them down simply:

Volume = Width * Height * Depth Width * Height = Area Area of a

circle = Pi * radius2 Okay, so now that we have remembered the

formulas, we can plug in the numbers: Radius = 15/2 or 7.5 feet so

Area = 3.14159265 (Pi) * 7.52 which equals 176.715 sqare feet Now,

Volume = Area * Depth, so 176.7145868 (the area) * 4 = 706.858347

cubic feet. 1 gallon = 0.13368 cubic feet, so take

706.858347/0.13368 to get the answer: A 15 foot round above ground

swimming pool that is 4 feet deep will hold 5,287.6676 gallons of

water.

### What is the average size home above ground swimming pool?

Above Ground Pools range in size and shape.
The average round above ground pool has a diameter of 15
ft and 4 ft deep. Using these dimensions you can get the following
useful information.
Surface Area = radius (7.5) x radius (7.5) x 3.14 =
176.6 square feet
Gallons of water = radius (7.5) x radius (7.5) x average depth
(4) x 3.14 x 7.48 =
5284.6 gallons
