The calculation for an oval pool is:

Length x Width x Water Depth x 5.9 = Total Gallons

Please note that the water depth is the ACTUAL water depth, not the wall height (the water is typically 6" lower than the wall).

For your example, let's assume an actual water depth of 3.5 ft:

30 x 15 x 3.5 x 5.9 = 9,293 gallons or about 9,300 gallons.

Hope this helps ...
