Calculate Pond Statistics

Input your pond dimensions here. Each input must contain a positive number. All dimensions must be in feet.

We do not guarantee the accuracy of the values listed below. We are not responsible for any issues that may arise from overestimating/underestimating your pond's gallonage. It is always safer to under treat your pond than over treat it (esp if you have fish). It is recommended to use less treatment/medication if you are unsure of your pond's gallonage.

Gallons and Liner Calculations

Pond Gallons: Length x Width x Average Depth x 7.48

Stream Gallons: Length x Width x .25 Depth x 7.48

Pond Liner Size (Feet): Length = Pond Length + (Max Depth x 2) | Width = Pond Width + (Max Depth x 2)

Stream Liner Size (Feet): Length = Stream Length + 5 | Width = Stream Width at Widest Point + 5

Pondless and Wetland Filtration

Recommended Basin Size for a Pondless Waterfall (Gallons): Stream Gallons x 2

AquaBlox for Pondless Basin: Small = Basin Gallons / 17 | Large = Basin Gallons / 32

AquaBlox (Small): 17 Gallons | 26.5"L x 16"W x 9.5"H

AquaBlox (Large): 32 Gallons | 26.5"L x 16"W x 17.5"H

Bog Size (Square Feet): Pond Length x Pond Width / 5

Calculate Boulders and Gravel

Pond Boulders (Tons): Length x Width / 40

Pond Gravel (Tons): Pond Boulders x 0.3

Stream Boulders (Tons): 10' of Stream = 1.5 Tons of Boulders

Stream Gravel (Tons): Stream Boulders x 0.3
