+ | ====== YOUR POOL ====== | ||

+ | |||

+ | Use the following formulas to measure and record the pool length, width, depth, volume, and bather load. | ||

+ | |||

+ | Ask someone to check your calculations—they are very important. You use these calculations to decide how much of each chemical to add to the pool. | ||

+ | |||

+ | For more information on pool chemicals, complete the Pool Operations Level 1 course. For course information, contact the School of Community Government, Municipal and Community Affairs, GNWT. | ||

+ | |||

+ | Pool length (metres) | ||

+ | Pool width (metres) | ||

+ | Pool area (square metres) | ||

+ | Water depth shallow end (metres) | ||

+ | Water depth deep end (metres) | ||

+ | Maximum bather load (number of people in pool) | ||

+ | Pool volume (cubic litres) | ||

+ | |||

+ | //**Length, width, depth**// | ||

+ | |||

+ | Use metres to measure pool length, width, and depth. | ||

+ | |||

+ | When you measure depth, be sure to measure from the surface of the water and not the top of the wall. | ||

+ | |||

+ | Pool area (square metres) = length (metres) X width (metres) | ||

+ | |||

+ | //**Maximum bather load**// | ||

+ | |||

+ | Maximum bather load (number of people) = pool area (in square metres) 1.5 | ||

+ | |||

+ | //**Pool volume (cubic litres)—constant depth pool**// | ||

+ | |||

+ | Use this formula to calculate pool volume for a constant depth pool—a pool that has the same depth all over. | ||

+ | |||

+ | * Unordered List ItemVolume (cubic litres) = length (metres) X width(metres) X depth (metres) X 1000 | ||

+ | |||

+ | //**Pool volume (cubic litres)—variable depth pool**// | ||

+ | |||

+ | Use this formula to calculate pool volume for a variable depth pool—a pool where the water depth changes from one end to the other. | ||

+ | |||

+ | - Average depth = [Depth at shallow end (metres) + depth at deep end (metres)] 2 | ||

+ | - Volume (cubic litres) = length (metres) X width (metres) X average depth (metres) X 1000 | ||

+ | |||

+ | For pools with several depths: | ||

+ | * Divide the pool into sections. | ||

+ | * Calculate the volume of each section. | ||

+ | * Add the volume of each section together to get the total volume. | ||
