## How much area is needed for a swimming pool?

Space required: The smallest swimming pool that can be constructed can have a size of 150-200 square feet (water area), which can easily be built in an area of 500 square feet.

## How do I calculate the surface area of my pool?

- FORMULAS. Surface Area (Circle): Radius x Radius x 3.14 (Radius = Diameter / 2) Surface Area (Rectangle/Square): Length x Width.
- EXAMPLE. A rectangular pool is 50 feet long by 20 feet wide. The shallow end is 3 feet deep and the deep end is 7 feet deep.
- ANSWERS. Surface Area = 1,800 square feet Volume = 81,000 Gallons.

**How do I measure the size of my pool?**

### What is the diameter of a 27 foot round pool?

Free Shipping. Approximate inside (water) dimensions – 27′ Diameter. Approximate outside dimensions (space required) – 28′ Diameter. Approximate Water Capacity – 17,000 Gallons.

**What is the diameter of a 33 ft round pool?**

Free Shipping. Approximate inside (water) dimensions – 33′ Diameter. Approximate outside dimensions (space required) – 34′ Diameter. Approximate Water Capacity – 25,000 Gallons.

**What is the diameter of a pool?**

Smaller, more conservative pools are 12 to 18 feet in diameter while larger pools can go up to 33 feet round or 21×41 feet in the oval shape. Important Fact: Pool measurements are based on the water dimensions of the pool, so it’s imperative that you allow for extra space.

## What is the diameter of a 24 foot round pool?

**What are the dimensions of a rectangular pool?**

3) A rectangular pool has a swimming area and a diving well. The swimming area is 75 feet long by 25 feet wide and is 3 feet deep to 5 feet deep. The diving well is 25 feet long by 25 feet wide and has a constant depth of 10 feet deep.

### How do you find the area of a 5 foot pool?

In the example, 5 feet times 5 feet equals 25 feet squared. Multiply the number calculated in Step 3 by pi to determine the area of the pool. Pi is generally estimated as 3.14. In the example, 25 feet squared times 3.14 equals an area of 78.5 square feet.

### How do you calculate the diameter of a swimming pool?

This number is the pool’s diameter. For example, say a pool has a diameter of 10 feet. Divide the diameter in half to determine the radius. In the example, 10 feet divided by two equals a radius of 5 feet. Multiply the radius by itself. In the example, 5 feet times 5 feet equals 25 feet squared.

**How deep should a pool be in a house?**
