## How to calculate what you will need:Bulk Materials (Soils, Mulch and Aggregates) To calculate approximate # of yards needed: length (in feet) x width (in feet) x depth (in inches) divided by 12 divided by 27 = Yards ONE (1) Yard of COMPACTED Aggregate will cover approximately: 1" thick = 200 sq. ft.
To calculate the approximate # of tonnes needed: |
The following table should be used to size hose for all pond pumps REGARDLESS OF THE OUTPUT SIZE OF THE PUMP USED. If using long lengths of hose or multiple 90 degree elbows a larger hose size is stongly suggested for maximum flow 1/2" hose - maximum flow 300 GPH Calculating Liner Size: Once you have your pond size determined, you can calculate the liner size. Use the longest, widest and deepest points of your pond to calculate. Use the following formula: Length + (2 x the depth) + (2 x 1 ft overhang)=length needed Width + (2 x the depth) + (2x1 ft overhang)=width needed For example: a pond 12' x 6' x 3' |
