Tips For Measuring Your Pond
Finding out the size of your pond should be one of the first steps you take prior to pond treatment. Without knowing the size of your pond you will end up wasting valuable time and money. If your aren’t using enough pond chemicals you will notice little to no change in the condition of your pond. If you are using an excessive amount of pond chemicals you will waste money and potentially harm your fish. Use the formulas below to calculate the size of your pond.
Square/ Rectangular (Gallons):
Multiply length x width x average water depth (feet) x 7.5
Example: 8′ x 4′ x 2′ x 7.5′ = 480 gallons
Multiply length x width, then divide by 43,560 (square feet per acre)
Example: 80′ x 140′ / 43,560 = .2571 which is approximately 1/4 surface acre
Multiply diameter x itself x average water depth (feet) x 5.9.
Example: 4′ x 4′ x 2′ x 5.9 = 188 gallons
Multiply circumference x itself and then divide by 547,390.
Example: 520′ x 520′ / 547,390 = .4939 which is approximately 1/2 surface acre
