I just got one of those kiddie pools and it says that it is a 608 gallon capacity pool. Its 8' by 26". my problem is that i put it on a deck that is elevated and i want to know how to convert gallons to pounds in order to see what im dealing with in terms of weight/load issues. what is the weight of my pool filled up with 600 gallons?

Fresh water weighs approximately 8.33 pounds per gallon (depends on temperature), so multiplied by 600 gallons, 4998 pounds.
