1. ## Pump formula

Hey guys I got a question for you. What is the formula for converting cubic feet of water into gallons? The question came up at the station and I was drawing a blank.

2. Irons,

There are 7.481 gallons in one cubic foot.

3. Thanks a ton. I will get that info back to him and take back my place on the top of the mountain as the guy who knows or can find out whatever you want to know.

4. one gallon of water consists of 231 cubic inches. one cubic foot contains 1728 cubic inches. divide 1728 by 231 and the result is how may gallons.

I'll stick with litres - one measurement covers it all. Especially with 1000 litres of water being one tonne...

Mind you, when we converted to metric I was one of those that had to be dragged along kicking and screaming!
