How can I tell if my pool is leaking?
Pools do lose 1" to 1-1/2" per week during summer months just by normal evaporation. When the days are warm and the nights cool evaporation is at it's highest. Using the ordinary 5 gallon plastic bucket you can perform this simple test to determine if your pool is leaking.

Bring pool water to normal level. Fill bucket with pool water to about 1 inch from top. Place bucket on 1st or 2nd step of pool. Mark water level on replica watches inside of bucket. Shut off pump and mark pool water level on outside of bucket. Resume normal pump operation. After 24 hours, compare the 2 water levels. If the pool water (outside mark) goes down more than inside water level, there is probably a leak.

How do I figure out how my poolą·”ter capacity?
Here are some formulas for estimating total gallons and pool capacity.

Rectangular or Square Pools:
Length x Width x Average Depth x 7.5
(Example): 20 x 40 x Pool with an average depth of 5 feet
20 x 40 x 5 x 7.5 = 30,000 gallons

Round Pools:
Diameter of Pool x the diameter of the pool x Average Depth x 5.9.
(Example): 20' round pool, average depth 4'
20 x 20 x 4 x 5.9' = 9,440 gallons

Oval Pools:
Length x Width x Average Depth x 5.9

Free Form Pools:
If possible, divide pool shape into combinations of the above configurations and add together for total gallons. If this is impractical, calculate as nearly as possible the square footage of surface area of the pool, multiply this by the average depth and multiply this total by 7.5, the number of gallons in each cubic foot. If the pool has sloping sides, multiply total gallons computed by 0.85. In many instances, the pool contractor can provide the capacity of your pool.
