To calculate your pond square footage size area we need the longest pond length, longest pond width and deepest pond depth.
Pond size Area calculator formula:
1.- Multiply your depth for two and the number needs to be added to the length and also added to the width. (Length + Depth X 2 = X ) and (Width + Depth X 2 = X)
2.- Multiply the resulted number from above formula/length by width. (L X W = Total pond area)
(This formula is not perfect, but will give you a very good idea of your pond size)
