Many pool chemical products require that the pool owner know how many gallons are in their pool. And in order to properly heat your pool, knowing the gallons of water in your pool is important…. thankfully our experts at PoolHeatPumps.com can do the math for you.
But for those of you that want to know that information ahead of time…. here are some quick calculations for figuring out the gallons in your pool!
You will need to know four different numbers: Length, Width, Average Depth* and a Multiplier that determines gallons. Here are the formulas for your specific pool shape:
If you have a Rectangular, Square or a Free Form Pool:
Length x Width x Average Depth x 7.5 = Total gallons
If you have a Circular Pools:
Diameter x Diameter x Average Depth x 5.9 = Total gallons
If you have an Oval Pool:
Long Diameter x Short Diameter x Average Depth x 5.9 = Total gallons
**In order to determine the average depth of your pool, measure the shallow end and measure the deep end of the pool. Add those dimensions together and divide that number by 2. This is the average depth of your pool.
We love our customers. And we really love it when we hear back from them after they’ve purchased a pool heater from us!
I also personally love the heat pump experts that I have the privilege to work with at PoolHeatPumps.com! I’ve dealt with many “sales people” over the years and I am so glad to work with experts that are extremely knowledgeable and actually CARE about their customers!
Wanted to share this customer comment from Walter in Florida…. he says what so many other have told me! Thank you Walter for this customer testimonial.
“In all of the correspondence I have had through the years with different vendors and manufacturers, your response to my questions is undoubtedly the best response I have ever received. Not only did you answer all my questions, you have cleared up all the confusion I have had on this subject. I am so impressed with your response that you can expect my order tomorrow morning at the start of your business day. My pool is 15 X 30 and the sales people I have talked to said I should use a minimum of 100,000 BTU’s. I will take your recommendation over theirs as we use our cover almost daily and I believe you are correct. I want you to know how refreshing is to have someone share their opinion as honestly as you have. Thank you very much.”
