The area is 10 x 10 square feet or 100 square feet. I have 12 inches of water how do I calculate the cubic feet of water I have?

12" = 1'
so you have 100 sq ft x 1 ft deep = 100 cubic feet

8.33 is weight of 1 gallon of water, not 1 cu ft.
Fresh water is about 62.5 lbs and ocean water about 64 lbs per cubic feet.
