Innovative Pond Volume Calculator Tool

At Half Off Ponds, we take the guesswork out of creating the ideal pond for your current space. With our Pond Calculator tool, you’ll be able to determine the surface area, pond water volume, pond liner size, pump’s head pressure, pump’s flow rate, and the pump cost and usage of your next pond. Continue reading below and find out how with just a few easy steps you can start getting ready on your pond!

Estimating Surface Area

It may be hard to choose, but you’re going to have to make a decision on whether you would like to have a square pond, a round pond, or an irregularly shaped pond. For square ponds, plug in the average length in feet and the average width in feet and you’ll get the estimated surface area in square feet. For the round pond, plug in the diameter in feet and you’ll get the estimated surface area in square feet. For an irregularly shaped pond, calculate the average measurements for length and width.

Estimating Your Pond’s Water Volume

Next you must determine your pond’s water volume. For a square pond, plug in the average length in feet, the average width in feet, and the average depth in feet, and you’ll get the estimated water volume in gallons. For a round pond, plug in the diameter in feet, the average depth in feet, and you’ll get the estimated water volume in gallons. For an irregularly shaped pond, calculate the average measurements for length and width.

Estimating Your Pond Liner Size

Now you must figure out your pond liner size. You must plug in your average length in feet, average width in feet, and average depth in feet, and you’ll get the estimated liner length in feet and liner width in feet. For an irregularly shaped pond, calculate the average measurements for length and width.

Estimating Pump Head Pressure

Next on the agenda is estimating the pump head pressure. To determine the pump head pressure, plug in the total rise in feet, hose length in feet, number of angled fittings and reducers, and number of other adapters and you’ll get the estimated head pressure. Now, for waterfalls and streams, it’ll be slightly different, since you must consider the amount of pump head pressure (GMH) that your system will have, in order to determine the right pump size.

Estimating Pump Flow Rate

Now you must determine the size of your pump so you know the water depth for your waterfall spillway or stream. For this, estimate the pump’s flow rate (GPH) and calculate the spillway width in inches and the spillway depth in inches.

Estimate Pump Cost and Usage

Last but not least, be sure to leave your pond on 24/7 in order to maintain your pond’s ecosystem. In order to determine the overall cost to run your pond daily, plug in your pump’s watt rating, electric cost per kw/hr, and you’ll receive the estimate in dollar cost per day.

And there you have it! With a few quick and easy steps, you’re one step closer to designing your own pond at Half Off Ponds.
