Pond Sizing Calculator

Estimating your pond’s size by acre is an important part of choosing the right fountain or aerator for your pond. Below we have created a pond calculator that will estimate your pond’s surface acres, surface area, and acre feet.

Click the button that has the shape of your pond to quickly get to the calculator that you need.

From there, we will recommend the pond fountain or aerator that is a good fit for your pond!

If you’re not sure what the difference between the two is, you’re not alone. It is one of our most common questions. Check out the fountain versus aerator section of our fountain sizing guide

What is an Acre Foot

An acre foot is the standard unit of measurement people use to reference larger volumes of water. There are roughly 325,851 gallons — that’s 43,560 cubic feet of water — in an acre foot. An easy way to grasp its size is to know that the volume of an acre foot would sit comfortably within a football field. An Olympic sized pool holds approximately 2 acre feet. 

Using Our Pond Sizing Calculator

These calculators give three water volume measurements. They are all important, but when sizing our fountains and aerators to customers we typically use surface area. It is good to know multiple measurements of your pond, as these measurements will help you better decide how to keep your pond healthy. For example, if you wanted to treat your pond with pond dye packets, it is very useful to know its volume. In the case of pond dye, not knowing the volume can lead to overtreatment of your pond. This can cause all sorts of adverse pond effects.

Pond Aerators Based on Surface Acres

Similar to pond fountains, our customers find the most success in choosing their pond aeration system based on surface acres. Your pond’s depth has a little more of a role to play when choosing an aerator. To help understand this role, check out the six foot rule section of our pond aerator sizing guide.
