Question from anurag:

what will the weight of water in a swimming pool having dimensions of 18ft *10ft*5 ft?
how much water will be needed for filling it up?


If you multiply the three dimensions you have you will obtain the volume of water in the pool in cubic feet. (You could also use our volume calculator.) Water weighs 62.4 pounds per cubic foot so from the volume you can calculate the weight.
