      Hey Everyone,
       
      For anyone who's interested this is how I figured out my tank on my furnace - I measured the bottom of the tank, it was 24" round, I put one litre of water in the bottom and measured how high it sat in the tank.  you can then multiply that measurement by 4 to get each gallon in the tank.  then you multiply that measurement by the length of the tank.  For instance:
       
      24" round tank
      1" depth for 1 litre
      4" depth = 1 gallon
      therefore, if the tank is 44" long, you have an 11 gallon tank or 44 litres
       
      this is the best way to figure these sorta things out.

      Okay, after you measure the the length, width and height , how do
      you convert this to gallons. I know this is in the back of my mind
      somewhere but right now I want to do it the easy way, ask some one to
      tell me
      Thanks
      Harold
