By definition, an imperial gallon of water weighs 10 pounds. 1 cubic foot is 6.22883 imp gal, so 62.2883 pounds. 16 ounces in a pound, so we get 62.2883x16 = 996.6128 or about 997 ounces.

Using a different sequence of conversions gives 999 ounces. The answers vary because the density of water varies with temperature.

Gallons per cubic footOne cubic foot contains 7.48 U.S.gallons of water. One U.S. gallon of water weighs 8.34 pounds, so one cubic foot of water weighs 62.38 lbs. Since one gallon equals 128 fluid ounces, a cubic foot of water contains 7.48 x 128 fluid ounces, or 957.44 ounces.
