Water Garden FAQ

How do I calculate the amount of water in my pond?

To determine the volume of water in your pond:
(measurements are in feet, and totals are approximate)
Cubic Feet of Water = Length of Pond X Width of Pond X Average Depth of Pond
Cubic Feet of Water X 7.5 = Total volume of water in gallons

For example: A pond 10 X 5 X 2 = 100 cubic feet of water
100 cubic feet X 7.5 = 750 gallons

How do I determine what size liner I will need?

Measurements are in feet.
Max width of pond + (2 X Max depth of pond) + 2 = liner width
Max length of pond + (2 X Max depth of pond) + 2 = liner length
