# How Much Water Does a 24-Foot-Round Pool Hold?

A 24-foot-diameter, 52-inch-deep pool can hold about 14,715 gallons of water if it is full, or about 13,594 gallons if it is filled to a depth of 48 inches on average. Most pools aren’t completely full.

To figure out how many gallons of water a pool can hold, multiply the diameter by the diameter by the depth of the water by 5.9. All of these measurements are done in feet. Multiplying 24 by 24 by 4.33 by 5.9 gives you a total of 14,715 gallons for the 52-inch pool. Using this formula, a pool that is 48 inches deep and has an average depth of 42 inches holds 11,894 gallons of water.

It is important to measure the amount of water in a pool correctly so that the right amount of chemicals can be added to clean the water. The water is treated with chemicals to keep it clean and safe for swimmers and the pool itself.

When disinfectants like chlorine, bromine, calcium hypochlorite, and sodium hypochlorite are diluted too much, bacteria and algae can grow. Too much of it can irritate swimmers’ eyes and skin and damage the liner of the pool.

Keeping the right pH, which measures how acidic or alkaline the water is, is also important. If the water is too acidic, it will burn swimmers’ eyes, make chlorine less effective, and clog the pump and filter. Too much alkaline water can irritate the skin and eyes and eat away at the pool’s walls and pipes.
