How to Estimate the Number of Gallons of Water in your Pond

To estimate an irregularly shaped pond, the formula is:

Length x Width x Depth  x 6.23 = Total Gallons

Knowing the total number of gallons in your pond will help you determine things such as:

  • The size pump you need
  • The size waterfall you need
  • The number of plants you can stock in your pond
  • The number of fish you can stock in your pond
  • The amount of water conditioners or amendments to add, if needed
  • And much more
