I'm looking for a thread from a few months ago that discussed the formula for finding the volume of a pipe. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I have tried the search function but no luck finding it.
I've found the search function to be useless since the new change. Use google and use "ridgid forum" followed by your search words to be more effective.
same here, search is nothing like it used to be.
they must have dumped the index file when they upgraded.
too much work for IT to save that stuff, and it has zero value to
them, only to us forum users.

Are we just talking (0.785) x (Dia, ft)2 x (Height, Length, or Depth, in ft.) x 7.48 gal/ft3 for water?
Thanks Utah. That maybe what I was looking for, but now I'm more confused.
Let me restate what I'm looking to do. I want to find the volume of water
, in gallons, in a pipe. (55' foot long, .5 i.d.) That formula appears that you need the amount of gallons.

That is the formula for what you are looking for. My question for you is are you working with a 6" pipe or a 1/2" pipe (.5 i.d.) ?
That formula will work for finding the capacity in gallons of any cylinder.
What might be helpful to know is that the diameter must be expressed in feet.
Six inches is obviously .5 ft., but how many feet is .5 inches?
The conversion is:
If the latter you need to know the actual ID for calculating cross sectional area.
