Filling the Pond

It's amazing how much math I am using for this project.  I take back all those times I said to my math teachers "when am I ever going to use this?" because now I am glad I can do it.  My pond holds pretty close to 450 gallons.  Because of the highly irregular shape of the pond, I was unable to use LWH measurements for volume.  So I turned on my hose and timed while I filled a 5 gallon bucket.  Then I kept track of time while I filled the pond and there you have it:  Tp/Tb*5.

You may be thinking "duh, of course that's how you do it," but I'm pretty proud that I figured that out on my own...
