# How Much Water Is in a Swimming Pool That Is 24 Feet by 52 Feet?

A 24-foot-by-52-inch round swimming pool typically has a water capacity of 14,000 gallons or less. However, this sum changes according to the precise measurements and whether the pool is above or below ground.

There are four measures that must be taken in order to determine how many gallons of water a pool can store. This comprises the multiplier, average depth, width, and length. The multiplier is influenced by the pool’s shape.

The multiplier, for instance, is 5.9 for round or oval pools and 7.5 for rectangular or square pools. The number of gallons is calculated using the formula length times width times depth times multiplier equals gallons.
