To calculate pond volume
The first step in determining your pond size is to figure out how many gallons your pond is. To do this you use the following formula. Width x Length x Depth x 7.5 = # of Gallons10’ x 15’ x 3’ = 450 Cu. Ft.
450 Cubic Feet x 7.5 gallons = 3375 gallons - This will be required when determining the proper pump size.
To calculate liner size
It is important to make sure that the liner is sized appropriatley because you don't want to come up short, which could result in a leak or having to glue two pieces of liner together. To determine your liner size use the following calculation. (Length + Twice Depth + 3' ) = Total Length. (Width + Twice Depth + 3') = Total Width
Calculating Waterfall Flow Rate
Light Flow = 100 gph per inch of spillway
Average Flow = 150 gph per inch of spillway
High Flow= 200 gph per inch of spillway
Width of Spillway x Desired Flow Rate = Total GPH
Only a certain amount of water can physically fit through any diameter of tubing. Despite the dimensions of the pumps discharge, tubing must be sized based on the amount of flow required.
