Re: volume to gallons

I think you will need another measurement. Length width and height.
Is it rectangular or cylindrical?
Use this:

We know the circumference, so by dividing by pi (3.14), the diameter is about 18" and the radius is about 9". 9" squared times pi gives an area of 254 square inches, which divided by 144 sq in per sq ft is 1.77sq ft. 1.77 x 2.5' high is 4.4 cubic feet. 4.4 cf x 7.48 gallons per cf = 33 gallons.
