How to Calculate Your pool Water Volume:
You can easily calculate the water volume in your pool as follows: –
To calculate the volume of a round pool, you can use the formula
Pool Volume = 3.14 x radius x radius x depth
- Measure the diameter of the pool in metres
- Half the diameter to give the radius of the pool
- Multiply 3.14 x radius x radius x pool depth
A 12′ (3.66 m) diameter round above ground pool with a depth of 0.8m
Diameter = 12′ x 0.305 = 3.66m
Radius = 3.66 / 2 = 1.83m
Volume = 3.14 x 1.83 x 1.83 x 0.8m = 8.4 m3
The Pico Reversible 4kw supports pools up to 10m3 so would be ideal for this pool, however if you live in a colder area we would always recommend you use the 5kw model especailly to achieve a good water temperature in the colder months.
Pool volume = length x width x depth
6m x 4m pool, 0.8 m deep = 6 x 4 x 0.8 = 19.2 m3
Typical Pool Sizes and Volumes
8′ x 30″ Intex above Ground pool = 3.6 m3 – Pico Reversible 4kw OK !
10′ x 30″ Intex above Ground pool = 5.5m3 – Pico Reversible 4kw OK !
12′ x 36″ Intex above Ground pool = 9.6 m3 – Pico Reversible 4kw OK, but depending on where the pool is in the UK the 5kw Pico would be better!
The sizing guide for an above-ground covered pool is:-
|Model||Kw||Max Pool Volume
(Warmer areas in the UK)
|Max Pool Volume
(Colder areas in the UK)
Absolute Max Pool Volume
(Hotter Climates – Europe)
|Pico Reversible 4kw Heat Pump||4kw||10m3||8m3||12m3|
|Pico Reversible 5kw Heat Pump||5kw||12m3||
Please note that these sizes are based on summer use (May-Sep) to ensure that you maintain a good water temperature as long as you cover the pool with the solar cover for as many hours a day as possible (max 4 hours uncovered). The colder the outside air temperature (including night temperatures as this is the coldest time where you will lose most heat) the larger the heat pump size you will need (kw)
6. Additional Fittings
The Pico Reversible comes with two screw on hose tails that accept both 32mm (1.25″) and 38mm (1.5″) standard pool hose

Using the Pico Reversible heat pump to heat your pool rather than an electric heater will save you money on running costs
The Pico Reversible only uses 0.8kw of electricity to produce 4kw of pool heat.
If you compare this with an electric pool heater, a 4kw electric pool heater would use 4kw of electricity
The Pico Reversible therefore is only less than 1/4 the running cost of an electric pool heater – saving you money!
