Calculate square feet into gallons?
Hello,

I am trying to find the gallon (US gallons) capacity of a pond 20' x 20' x 10 ' deep.

Many many thanks.

Does that mean 29,922 gallons is wrong?

Thanks

No.

What Moo wanted to make clear is the fact that
- squarefoot is the unit of an area and
- cubic foot is the unit of a volume.

Sorry to bother you again!
But,

What is the difference betyween "area" and "volume"...Do they not mean the same thing?

I am sincere in this question. It means a lot because a lot depends on it.

Thanks

You aren't kidding, are you?

I'll try to explain the difference by an example.
