Olympic pools measure 25 meters by 50 meters by two meters in depth. This is approximately 82 feet x 164 feet x 6 feet, or 80,688 cubic feet. A cubic foot of water is equal to 7.5 gallons.
Thus, an Olympic pool contains approximately 80,688 cubic feet of water multiplied by 7.5 gallons per cubic foot equals 605,160 gallons.
A swimming pool of Olympic size measures approximately 50 meters or 164 feet in length, 25 meters or 82 feet in width, and 2 meters or 6 feet in depth.
These measurements result in a 13,454.72 square foot surface area and an 88,263 cubic foot volume.
The pool contains 660,253.09 gallons of water, or approximately 5,511,556 pounds. When you consider how many gallons of water that is in a pool, you will become petrified by the fact that there is a 1 in a 1,000,000 chance that someone has pissed in it.

As previously stated, the Olympic-Size Pool measures 50 meters (164′.5′′) in length and 25 meters (82′.25′′) in width. The pool’s minimum depth is specified as 2 m (6′7′′), but the maximum recommended depth is 3 m (9′10′′).
By adding the figures together, you will arrive at a total of 2,500 m3 (88,287 cu ft).
This equates to approximately 660,000 gallons.
If you’re still using obsolete Imperial (U.K.) Gallons, the figure would be 17% less than a standard US Gallon, given that a standard US Gallon is 83 percent the size of an obsolete Imperial Gallon. And 17% of 660,000 Gallons equals approximately 550,000 Imperial Gallons.
