The answer depends on the shape of the pool. If the pool is of uniform depth, then its volume is the surface area times the depth. If the surface area is measured in square feet, and the depth is measured in feet, then the volume is in cubic feet.

1 cubic foot = 6.2288 Imperial gallons.

How did you find how many gallons in a circular pool?

Several ways:# If the pool is full, you could empty it with a measuring container, preferably marked in gallons, and make a note of how many gallons you take out # If the pool is empty you could fill it with water, taking a note of how many gallons of water you put in. # You could use a 'pool capacity calculator' (Try a pool manufacturer's website). # You could calculate its capacity (Area of a circle times depth) This will give you its cubic capacity. Then find out the cubic size of a gallon. Then divide the pool's capacity by the cubic size of a gallon. The answer will be how many gallons.

How many gallons of water fill a 16ft by 36ft pool?

A lot. If you know the depth of the pool, you can actually calculate the volume in cubic feet. Then multiply by 7.48 (the number of gallons per cubic foot) to determine the amount of water in your pool. For example, assuming the average depth of your pool is 5', the volume in cubic feet is (16'x36'x5') 2880, which is 21,542 gallons (2880 x 7.48).
