The American Standard gallon contains 231 cubic inches, or 8 1/3 pounds of pure water. A cubic foot contains 62.3 pounds of water, or 7.48 gallons. Pressure per square inch is equal to the depth or head in feet multiplied by .433. Each 27.72 inches of depth gives a pressure of one pound to the square inch.

For tanks that taper, take diameter 4/10 from large end.
