## How much water can a 4 inch pipe hold?

Estimate water content in pipes – weight and volume.

Pipe Size (inside diameter) (in) | Water Content | |
---|---|---|

Volume | ||

3 | 84.8 | 0.367 |

4 | 150.8 | 0.653 |

5 | 235.6 | 1.02 |

**How do you calculate water volume in a pipe?**

The formula for the volume of cylinder is: cylinder volume = π * radius² * height . For a pipe use its length instead of height: pipe volume = π * radius² * length , where radius = inner diameter/2 . The volume of a pipe is equal to the volume of a liquid inside (if a pipe is fully filled with it).

**How much water is in a 4 pipe per foot?**

There are 2.961 gallons per foot providing that the inside diameter of a 4 in PVC pipe is 4.26 inches and the outside diameter is 4.50 inches.

### How many gallons does PVC pipe hold?
