This tool will help you quickly calculate the square footage of your pool.

## How to Use the Pool Square Footage Calculator

Enter the **length**, **width**, and **depth** of your pool in feet. Choose the shape of your pool from the dropdown menu. Click the **Calculate** button to see the calculated square footage required for your pool.

### Explanation:

- The
**Length**is the longest side of your pool. - The
**Width**is the shorter side of your pool. - The
**Depth**is the average depth for curved pools or constant depth for rectangle pools. - The
**Shape**can either be rectangle or oval. Choose appropriately for accurate calculations.

### How it Calculates:

- For
**rectangle**pools, the square footage is calculated as:`Length × Width`

. - For
**oval**pools, the square footage is calculated as:`(Length / 2) × (Width / 2) × π`

. (π ≈ 3.14)

### Limitations:

- This calculator assumes consistent depth and only works for basic pool shapes: rectangle and oval.
- It does not consider slopes, steps, or additional features such as varying depths.
