    I am performing annual maintenance on my pool. After cleaning all the crap out of the filter it's time to recharge with diatomaceous earth.

    So here's the prob: I need 4.8lbs of DE and I don't have suitable scales.

    The helpful filter manufacturer advises that the contents of 10 one pound coffee cans will also provide the exact amount. However, I don't have a one pound coffee can either :mad:

    So can anyone measure the diameter and height of a one pound coffee can for me.

    Please use a standard such as inches or millimeters

    We will ignore any temperature effects

    Cheers!

        This helps, believe it or not

        base area x height = 69 cubic inches (give or take a knats cock)

        69 cu in = 4.78 cups

        I need 47.8 cups :yay:

        Thanks
