# Swimming Pool Calculation

Enter Your Numbers In GreenCells Only: Swimming Pool Design sheet Rev-0 (25-11-2009)
Surface Area of Swimming Pool 90 m2 prepared by eng. Ahmed Mohamed Sami
Pool average depth = 1.5 m
Pool Volume = 135 m3
NO. Water Inlets = 3.6
So Get the No. Of inlets = 4 inlets
Enter No. Of Turn Over Period = 8 time / day
Get Swimming Pool Pump Capacity = Pool Volume / ( turn over period * 60 )
= 0.28125 m3/min
No. Of pump will used = 2 pumps
Get pump flow rate = 0.140625 m3/min

Balance tank volume = 40 L/m2 X Pool Surface area + 10 min X pump flow rate + 0.01 X pool surface area
= 5.90625 m3
Balance tank volume = 5.9 m3

To calculate pipe sizing

Supply pipe maximum velocity will be 2 m/s
No. Of inlet = 4 Inlet
Pump flow rate = 16.875 m3/hr
Each inlet give flow rate = 4.21875 m3/hr
Assuming that all inlet in sequence
Dia 1 = 27.31766 Taking it 27 50 mm. Take just no. Of inlet for your calculation
Dia 2 = 38.63301 Taking it 39 50 mm. for 4 inlet take to dia4
Dia 3 = 47.31558 Taking it 47 50 mm.
Dia 4 = 54.63533 Taking it 55 50 mm.
Dia 5 = 61.08415 Taking it 61 65 mm.
Dia 6 = 66.91433 Taking it 67 65 mm.
Dia 7 = 72.27574 Taking it 72 75 mm.
Dia 8 = 77.26602 Taking it 77 75 mm.
Dia 9 = 81.95299 Taking it 82 75 mm.
Dia 10 = 86.38603 Taking it 86 75 mm.
Dia 11 = 90.60244 Taking it 91 100 mm.
Dia 12 = 94.63116 Taking it 95 100 mm.

Suction pipe maximum velocity will be 1.2 m/s
Pump flow rate = 16.875 m3/hr
No. Of outlet = 2 Outlet
Each outlet give flow rate = 8.4375 m3/hr
Dia 1 = 49.38054 Taking it 49 50 mm. Take just no. Of outlet for your calculation
Dia 2 = 69.83463 Taking it 70 65 mm. for 2 outlet take to dia2
Dia 3 = 85.5296 Taking it 86 75 mm.
Dia 4 = 98.76108 Taking it 99 100 mm.

Over flow pipe Grille velocity will be 0.3m/s
the No. Of grille = 7 Grilles
Pump flow rate = 16.875 m3/hr
Assuming that all grilles in sequence
Dia 1 = 28.72398 Taking it 29 50 mm. Take just no. Of grille for your calculation
Dia 2 = 40.62184 Taking it 41 50 mm. for 6 grille take to dia 6
Dia 3 = 49.75139 Taking it 50 50 mm.
Dia 4 = 57.44796 Taking it 57 50 mm.
Dia 5 = 64.22877 Taking it 64 65 mm.
Dia 6 = 70.35909 Taking it 70 65 mm.
Dia 7 = 75.9965 Taking it 76 75 mm.
Dia 8 = 81.24368 Taking it 81 75 mm.
Dia 9 = 86.17194 Taking it 86 75 mm.
Dia 10 = 90.8332 Taking it 91 100 mm.

Getting the filter area to be used
Pump flow rate = 16.875 m3/hr
Filter area = 0.482143 m2 at 15 gpm / ft2

Heating Calculation for swimming pools

Heater is required for heating purposes at winter seasons if required take inconsideration that
it's not particle to heat the pool without covers at coldest winter months
For calculation purposes the following conditions to be considered:-
The recommended Pool water temperature is around 28 º C deg.
Outdoor air condition : 46 / 30 deg º C DB/WB –summer condition, max 122deg F (50 C)
: 6/ 10 deg º C BD/WB -winter condition
From SPATA p5, Sec3, the Average Daily heat loss (DH) in KWhr / m2 of pool surface area

correction value to be used 1.25
No. of hours per day available for heating 48 hours
