Enter the length and width of the pool deck and the length and width of the pool into the calculator to determine the Pool Deck Square Footage.

## Pool Deck Square Footage Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the .

A = (DL-PL)*(DW-PW)

- Where A is the pool deck square footage
- Dl is the pool deck length
- PL is the pool length
- DW is the deck width
- PW is the pool width

To calculate the area of a pool deck, subtract the length and width of the pool from the length and width of the overall deck, then multiply the results together.

## What is the Pool Deck Square Footage?

Definition:

The total area of a pool deck is most often considered the area of a deck not including the pool

## How to Calculate Pool Deck Square Footage?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate the square footage of a pool deck .

First, determine the length and width of the deck. In this example, the deck is 50 ft x 40ft respectively.

Next, determine the length and width of the pool. This pool is measured to be 30ft x 20ft respectively.

Finally, calculate the square footage of the pool deck using the formula above:

A = (DL-PL)*(DW-PW)

A = (50-30)*(40-20)

A = 400 square feet
