Enter the length (ft), the width (ft), and the water loss (inches) into the Pool Loss Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Pool Loss.

## Pool Loss Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Pool Loss.

PL = L*W*WL*.6233

Variables:

- PL is the Pool Loss (gallons per day)
- L is the length (ft)
- W is the width (ft)
- WL is the water loss (inches)

To calculate pool loss, multiply the pool area by the total inches of water loss, then multiply by .6233.

## How to Calculate Pool Loss?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Pool Loss.

- First, determine the length (ft).
- Next, determine the width (ft).
- Next, determine the water loss (inches).
- Next, gather the formula from above = PL = L*W*WL*.6233.
- Finally, calculate the Pool Loss.
- 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.

length (ft) = 20

width (ft) = 40

water loss (inches) = 2

PL = L*W*WL*.6233 =** ** ?
