I need your help - I have a pond in my back yard with a horrible sludge problem, and have just picked up the remedy - barley straw pellets-(or so they say @ the garden center) But, I need to know how many gallons of water are in my pond, approximately. |
The pond is oval in shape, about 5'10" in one direction, 7'8" the other way, at their longest points. Its 3 feet deep for the most part, but has a 1 foot deep lip around the outside, about 6" wide.
I am horrible at math, so can you tell me how many gallons of water are in there? Or a simple equation to figure it out? My fishies (Buffy, Willow, Skipper & Mary Anne) will thank you, as soon as they can see! (And no, they're not suffering... they are eating well, swimming fast, even possibly procreating! But the water is cruddy, and has algae up the wazoo, so we need to clear it up!)
