The calculation is: Diameter x Diameter x Depth X 5.9 = Number of Gallons For example: For a 15-foot round pool with a water depth of 3 ft: 15x15x3x5.9 = 3,982 gallons. Since you did not specify the depth of the water, I will provide an answer for a couple of likely depths below. Please no…te that this is the ACTUAL water depth NOT the height of the pool wall (the water is usually around 6 inchs lower than the wall height). 36 in depth: 3,982 gallons 42 inch depth: 4,646 gallons 48 inch depth: 5,310 gallons ...

Answer . Doughboy has recently come out with an 52" above ground pool that can be buried 46" and carries a full warranty. If you bury the pool more than 46 inches, the warranty is void. I purchased one and planned to have it buried but when the pool installer started digging he ran into a problem… with rock. Now we are stuck with either covering up the hole and not having a pool or having it above ground. Not exactly what I wanted but it will make the hot summer days more bearable.. ( Full Answer )
If your water is relatively rusty what can you do to get clear water in your 15' x 42 inch above ground pool?
Use a water clarifier sold at pool stores. Filter water longer. k Search question under "how do you clean rusty pool water". The answer there works like a charm

What maintenance and chemicals will you need if you are filling a 15 x 42 above-ground pool for the first time with spring well water?
Frankly, I would take a water sample to a local pool store and usually for free they analyze it for you and give you a list of chemicals to add. Our pool store here is awesome and they take really good care of us.
Answer . What are your readings? You can go as high as 5.0 maybe. There is a product to remove chlor. but is hard to use and causes other problems. Try a very small amount of amonia.
This depends on the size of the pool, the materials used in construction, the site, and the geographic position of the Job.
No reason. you can as a mater of fact I know someone that put a large above ground pool almost totally in the ground he left about 150 mm/6niches sticking out of the ground. dug the hole big enough to set it up, filled it with water, then back filled the edge around the pool with a 10 to 1 sand ceme…nt mix. reckons after more then 15 years he had to replace the liner but the rest of the pool was still in great shape.

Answer determining volume . http://www.worldofwater.com/pond_volume.htm This website is for ponds but the formula is the same to determine volume.
Find a fairly level spot, away from trees (if possible). The pool site has to be PERFECTLY level - 1/2" off is too much! If you are setting up a large (over 15 ft) pool, you should have the ground leveled and smoothed out with a bobcat. If your pool is 15 ft or less, then you can level it out by han…d using some sand provided you do not have a drop of more than a few inches - if your drop is more then level off some with a shovel or spade first. . You need to get the sand level, wet it down, compact it, wet it down, compact it, and wet down and compact one more time. And make sure to compact the sand a few feet outside the pool as well. Then check again for level before setting the pool up. Follow instructions for setting up the pool. Keep an eye on the pool in the first week or two - if it sinks on one side you will need to drain and fix. I used the instructions at http://www.levelgroundpool.com ( Full Answer )
Answer . Purchase a good test! Test frequently - about every 30 minutes -- after adding chlorine. If your readings are still low - you did not add enough chlor. When you reach the goal of 1.5 to 3.0 ppm and it stabilizes there then you have add enough chlor for your pool. When the chlor. stabi…lizes between the above readings - calculate what you added to the pool to achieve this and that is what may be required for your pool. That amount will vary because of weather, bather load, fill water, and any other contaminants that get into the pool water, conditioner level, pH levels and many other factors. The history of your pool over time is the only accurate way to determine demand for chlorine. K ( Full Answer )
depends on how much you put in it is 15 min to 2 hours but if you put in more then you should it will be longer because it the chlorine has to evaporate
It isn't exactly easy OR hard to remove an above ground pool. It just takes some time and work on your part. You will first need to drain the pool. If you intend to sell or pass the pool onto someone else, you may possibly need to clean the liner. Once the pool is drained, disassemble and move it aw…ay from the spot where it was sitting. If you have built a deck, or have rock gardens, flowers, shrubs, etc. around the pool, you will have to disassemble those or move them as well. Next comes removal of the surface your pool was sitting on. Often this is sand, which can be shoveled away. Once the pool is gone, prepare your soil and sow grass seed. It won't be long until you can't even tell the pool was ever there. ( Full Answer )
The deepest above ground pool in the world has been recorded tohaving depth levels of 5 m (16 ft.) and 10 m (32 ft.), a largecircular pit descending to a depth of 33 m (108 ft.). It is filledwith 2,500,000 liters of water and contains several simulatedunderwater caves at 10 m depth levels.
Purchase a good test kit for chlorine, pH and total alkalinity. Add chlorine to the pool. After about 20 minutes - time for the chlorine to circulate - test again. If no chlorine 'reading - add more chlorine. As an example a 15' x 30' plaster pool with no chlorine and with the proper amount of CYA w…ill usually take about a gallon to bring the chlorine readings up to near required standards. REPEATED testing and the addition of chemicals will give you an idea what it takes for YOUR individual pool. Note: the same size pool next door with similar conditions may require different amounts to acquire the same results. k ( Full Answer )
you put a couple of inches below the liner of your above ground pool. A: Taken literally, why would you want to put sand IN your pool?
How much chlorine, shock treatment, and conditioner do we put in an 18ft. x 48in pool? Also, how often does this need to be done?
Here's a formula for round pools: distance across*distance across*depth*5.9 for rectangles: length*width*depth*7.5 or for a deep end: length*width*((shallow end depth + deep end depth)/2)*7.5 so in your case, 24*24*4.3*5.9=15000 gallons
Here's a formula for round pools: distance across*distance across*depth*5.9 for rectangles: length*width*depth*7.5 or for a deep end: length*width*((shallow end depth + deep end depth)/2)*7.5 so in your case, 24*24*4*5.9=13500 gallons

How many gallons of water are in an easy set above ground 10 foot diameter x 30 inch deep above ground pool?
196 cubic feet is the volume of your pool. Converted to U.S. gallons would be, drum roll please...1,469 gallons.
How many gallons of water are in an easy set above ground 12 foot diameter x 42 inch deep above ground pool?
The old Pi x radius squared will give us the area. Then multiply by the height (3.5 feet). Here goes...3.1417 (Pi) x 36 (radius in feet squared) x 3.5 (height in feet) totals 396 cubic feet. Converted to U.S. gallons would be.....2,962 gallons.
Not typically. The reason these installations ALL fail is really quite simple. Hydrostatic pressure. The walls of an above ground pool are not made to withstand even the smallest amount of outside pressure that is caused by groundwater, or by shifts in the soil outside the pool. In-ground pools ar…e made to block groundwater, and are built robustly to withstand most increases in pressure caused by water entering the surrounding soil. --- There are 4 types of in-ground swimming pools: Concrete, gunite, vinyl liner, and fiberglass. They all share one thing in common: the walls. They are built or manufactured in such a way as to withstand hydrostatic pressure. The wall of each pool is the first 3 1/2' down from the top of the pool. In other words, no matter how deep the pool may be, the first 3 1/2' is the wall and everything else is called the bottom. Concrete and gunite pools have a one foot thick wall; the rest of the pool is only 8". Vinyl liner pool walls, usually made of galvanized steel or fiberglass are only about 1/2" thick, but they are anchored to the ground with "A" braces every 8 feet. A concrete pier is then poured on the end of each "A" brace, and a concrete collar is poured at the bottom of the wall all around the entire pool. Fiberglass pool walls are 5/8" thick and made with many layers of fiberglass, vinyl ester resin, and gel coat creating an extremely strong laminate. All this with just one purpose in mind: to withstand the hydrostatic pressure that will begin attacking these walls the very first time it rains or snows. Common sense tells us that this rain and snow must go somewhere, and the obvious answer is "into the ground". Water actually moves underground thus the term: hydrostatic pressure. With this in mind, check out the walls of an above ground pool. They are built to keep water in, not out, and will buckle in comparatively easily. Consider how well they will handle hydrostatic pressure compared to a foot of concrete or any of the other walls listed above. *Some desert areas with virtually no rain could have a reinforced out-of-ground pool put into the ground. It may deteriorate eventually and could cave in if left empty, from the pressure of the dry soil. ( Full Answer )
It depends how deep the water is! but the formula is Pi X (r squared) X H. H = Depth of water. r = Radius of the pool (= 1/2 the diameter). Pi = 3.14159......... 21 Feet is 6.4 Metres, so r = 3.2 Metres. Assuming H = 4 feet (1.2 Metres), we get. Pi X (3.2 X 3.2) X 1.2. = Pi X 10.24 X 1.2. = …Pi X 12.288. = 38.6 cubic metres.. There are 1000 litres in a cubic metre, so the pool holds 38,600 litres of water. There are 4.54 litres to an Imperial Gallon, so that's 8503 Imperial Gallons.. A US Gallon is is 4/5 of an Imperial gallon, so that's 10,629 US Gallons ( Full Answer )
That depends on the chemical composition of the water you would be best of taking a water sample to your pool shop where they will give it a free test and advise you in the best coarse of action.
Chlorine tabs can be put straight into the pool, even if it isabove ground. You can also put them in a container in the poolwhich will help them dissolve more slowly.
Yes it can. As long as you get the dose right for the pool it is the chosen sanitiser for most commercial pools. Follow the safety advice, keep the PH in balance and maintain good water quality. Sodium Hypochlorite is a wonderful product if used right.
go to the sea and bring home loads of salt water or just pour salt and mix in to plain water
In southern California the cost to install an above ground pool vary by size of the pool and the prep work needed to level the area and the cost of building materials like sand. Generally speaking, most pools cost between $800 and $1500 to have professionally installed. Pools with a deep end and poo…ls partially buried in the ground will be substantially more.

All you need is the salt and a salt water chlorinator. to get the correct equipment you should speak with a pool technician or a sales outlet that deals with salt water chlorinators.
How many gallons of water are in an easy set above the ground 16 foot diameter x 52 inch deep above ground pool?

There are several types of Chlorine. All have good points and bad points. To answer your question: I recommend Tri-Chlore in a floater or Feeder. These are the 3" pucks or 1" tablets . They are the most economical. 99% active ingredient. Tri-Chlore is Stabilized, meaning it is protected from UV ligh…t and will stay in the pool longer. They will leave a white spot in the liner if they come in contact for any extended period of time and they will lower the pH a lot.. Cal-Hypo is good but you have to add it every day and there is a lot of residue left over and it can bleach your liner as well. And is not stabilized the sun will lower the level. Di-Chlore is about the same.. Sodium Hypochlorite ( Liquid) has several draw backs. One it ruins a lot of clothes, Two is will raise the total De-solved Solids and if they get to high you have to exchange water to lower the TDS. It also will raise your pH. It's not stabilized, The sun will take it out of the pool.. Keep in mind you should never put chlorine in through the skimmer if you have a heater or Salt-Chlorine generator as this will eat out the metals. Then you end up with a lot of copper in your pool, and your water locks up. We'll save that for another time. ( Full Answer )
If you have an easy set above ground pool that holds 5455 gallons how much bleach and borax and baking do you use to open the pool?
It would be best to take a water sample to a pool store (such as Leslie's). They will run a computerized test which will tell you exactly which chemical to use and the proper order to place them in the pool. Be sure to tell them you have an above ground system.
I would not, you need some kind of cushion for the floor to lay on and the bottom of the pool needs support at the edges. That is done by contouring the ground.
\nTime. It all depends on how much chlorine was in it. If you shock a pool (high amounts of chlorine), it is ready to swim in by two days later.
No! You should not. Two reasons, one the water fluctuates when kids are swimming and splashing, second its dangerous. Many vacumms create a strong suction that could catch hair, clothes, etc....
If you are getting a low reading of chlorine in your above groundpool, you should add the appropriate amount of chlorine to get itback to the correct level. This is important to keep your poolrunning at maximum abilities.
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.
DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY or YOUR TIME - I had the same predicament and search for a solution for weeks. I eventually purchased various items that claimed to vacuum the dirt, sand, and small debris off the bottom of the pool (i.e. Aqua Broom, intex buggy vacuum) which was a total waste of money. None o…f the items did the job and was very time consuming and frustrating. I do not have a problem with the chemical make up of the water. It processes chlorine via a salt water chlornation system (Chlorease) which works perfectly as long as you keep the water hardness in check otherwise you have scale buildup on the plates. Sorry I digress, anyway just get the right size coupler for your outtake valve (the hole that sucks the water from the pool to the pump). A hose long enough to reach around the bottom of your pool. Connect one in to your outtake and the other you and connect to your telescopic pole with a tie down (not sure of the name the plastic thingy that secures wires). Turn on filter and vacuum. Hopefully you have a pump of 2000gph+ or it may take you some time. My filter pumps 4000gph and the pool in 16' round so it takes me maybe 10 minutes to completely clean the bottom of all dirt, sand, bugs, or debris. Reminder if you are vacuuming a lot of sediment I suggest you take time to clean or replace filter or you lower your pressure and return some of the filt back into the pool. GOOD LUCK!

You will need 17.5 square meters of water (17.5 tonnes) to fill it fully. The conversion to gallons depends on whether your talking about UK gallons or US gallons. That equates to 3850 UK gallons or 4623 US gallons. Hope this helps
If your pool is 4' to the water line and rectangle shaped 15 x 48 x 4 x 7.48 (gallons per cubic foot for rectangles) = 21,542 US gallons.. If your pool is 4' to the water line and oval shaped 15 x 48 x 4 x 5.9 = 16,992 US gallons.. If you meant 48" instead of 48' and your pool is round then 15 x 1…5 x 4 x 5.9 = 5,310 US gallons.

How many chlorine pills do you need to use - and for how long - in an 'Intex Easy Set' above-ground pool 10x30 inches?
There is no formula to tell how many tabs go in a pool, as there are many things that effect the amount of chlorine in your water. You must keep chlorine in the pool, always. Go to the pool store and get a test kit... test the water or take a sample to the store for testing. Once you know how m…uch you have, you can add more as needed. Test the water again in a few days or a week. The chlorine level should be maintained between 1-5 ppm (parts per million) free chlorine. ( Full Answer )
We're not sure exactly what "24 foot round" means. We're going to assume that it's a 24-ft diameter .

YOU DONT! THe stuff that goes in pools is not automotive antifreeze. Its usually pink and only a few bucks a bottle.
The company that is best known for making a 15 x 27 x 52'' above ground pool is Intex. Intex offers metal framed pools in addition to pools that have a blowup ring around the top.
