Enter the total pool area (ft^2) and the average pool depth (ft) into the Bathing Load Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Bathing Load. 

Bathing Load Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Bathing Load.

BL = PA / 15


  • BL is the Bathing Load (total pool capacity (people))
  • PA is the total pool area (ft^2) 

How to Calculate Bathing Load?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Bathing Load.

  1. First, determine the total pool area (ft^2). 
  2. Next, determine the average pool depth (ft). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = BL = PA / 15.
  4. Finally, calculate the Bathing Load.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total pool area (ft^2) = 30

average pool depth (ft) = 5

BL = PA / 15 = ?
