New pond

Can someone tell me how to determine how many gallons my new pond liner is? Thanks in advance.

Although it won't be accurate, you can get a general idea of it by doing the following (in inches):

1. Find the area of the top portion of the pond (the average width x the average length x the height of the top portion.
2. Find the area of the bottom portion of the pond (the average width x the average length x the height of the bottom portion.
3. Add the two areas together to find the total area of the pond.
4. Divide the total area of the pond by 231 to get the number of gallons.

Look closely on the pond - ponds and stock tanks are most often stamped with the gallon information.

Tank On, Mike-
60g Marineland Community, Finnex Planted+ 24/7, Silica (pool filter) sand.
10g, 29g, & 37g fry grow out tanks, 110g stock tank.

What came first, the chicken or the egg. It was the egg, but not the egg from a chicken.
