Use The Pond Guy pond calculator to determine how many gallons are in your pond, how much liner you need, and which pump size is best for you.www.thepondguy.com
I sent an email to Pond guy regarding their calculator. Have not heard back but I think you are right about them assuming plant shelves!4x16x4 = 1900 gallons
Those calculators are pretty difficult to use accurately. I think it is making the assumption that you will have shelves that occupy 50% of your space, and so is dividing your volume by 2. But it doesn't tell you that. And it's quite the assumption.
Would it be okay if I created a "pond volume estimation" tutorial? The math is pretty simple—even for complex shaped ponds—when you know the conversion factors and take it step by step. Does this already exist somewhere? I think most of the calculators out there lead you wildly astray by making assumptions they shouldn't and not telling you how they're calculating.
@addy1 i dont believe that calculation is true, as i recently found out, thepondguys calculator is off for some reason. His pond is actually closer to 1900 gallons (before any rocks or anything displaces water)Use The Pond Guy pond calculator to determine how many gallons are in your pond, how much liner you need, and which pump size is best for you.www.thepondguy.com
