5 Great Tools for Calculating Pool Volume

A common questions we will hear is: "How much water is in my pool?" It is an important question for pool owners, so we have sought our some of the best pool volume calculators. Knowing the volume of water in your pool is critical when:

  • Determining proper amount of chemicals for treatment

  • Estimating ownership costs

  • Adding or improving properly sized pool equipment (pumps, heaters, plumbing etc.)

You would think the answer is easy to determine, and for pools with standard shapes it often is. However, many pools are not simple geometric shapes like rectangles or circles. In addition, the bottom of your pool may have contours that makes taking measurements even more difficult.
