    I have an orental style OVAL garden basin/pot/pond. I have no idea how to calculate the volume.
    I intend to give my wcmm's a summer holiday. I suppose I could fill it 10litres at time from buckets as a last resort.
    the basin is 27" x 22" top reducing to 18"x 15" at base its depth is 12"

    I can’t promise this is exact but using the top measurement, I would say 466.5 x 12 = 5598” squared = 92 l

    Using the bottom measurement:
    212 x 12 = 2545” squared = 42 l

    So I would estimate the figure to be somewhere between the two. Allowing for the slope is too complicated and would require more than just basic arithmetic. You could just split the difference and call it approximately 67 litres.
