Are you purchasing a home that has a pool already? Maybe you are the third owner and get very little information about the pool from the previous homeowners. If so, you’ll want to have the pool inspected by a pool inspector to find out how well it’s functioning and if there are any needed repairs. Also, when you purchase a resale home, you can get a home warranty that covers the pool for a year. Every year that warranty can be extended if you want to keep it.

One of the things you will need to know to maintain your pool is how many gallons of water it holds. Cleaning and maintenance companies charge based on pool gallons.

To determine your pool’s volume in gallons you will need to measure the length and width of your pool and determine the average depth. Multiplying the length by the width by the average depth gives you the cubic feet of water capacity. There are 7.5 gallons per cubic foot, so multiplying the capacity number by 7.5 will give you the pool volume in gallons. A 20,000 gallon pool, for example, with a 15 psi of filter pressure (found on the pressure gauge on the filter unit) and a 1 horse power motor (horse power rating is on the manufacturers name plate on the pump cover) would need 4.5 hours of filtration time for one complete turnover of the pool water. A pool owner with a 1.5 HP filter pump motor that filters the pool 12 hours a day uses roughly 588 kWh per month. By reducing the filtering hours to four hours a day (196 kWh monthly), the energy savings alone mounts up to 392 kWh a month! If electricity costs 10 cents per kWh, that would be a savings of about $470 a year!
