0.23 gallons. Figured out by assuming the pipe is .75 inches inside diameter. To get the volume, calculate the area of the cross-section with the formula Pi times the radius squared. Which is 0.375 squared times Pi = 0.441786. Multiply that times 12 inches per foot times 10 feet = 53 cubic inches. One gallon = 231 cubic inches.

Figure it out this way, the formula for a round vessel is:

(The formula is for "Feet" so make the proper conversion 1st)

you also need to know that there are 7.5 gallons in a cubic foot

Pi x r2 x depth = cubic feet x 7.5 = total gallons

3.14 x (65" = 5.42' diameter, 2.71' = radius {squared} x 2.71 = 7.34 x 2.75 x 7.5 = 475.36 Gallons

Surely it depends on the material used in the manufacture of the pipe? This would include but is not restricted to the thickness of the pipe wall and the type of joints used between lengths.

A half inch ABS pipe will respond differently to a half inch copper pipe or a half inch PVC pipe. Joints may be push-fit, soldered or welded (plastic weld)

look up inside diameter of your 2' pipe

area inside a circle = 3.1415 (pi) x radius squared

for example if inside diameter of pipe is 1.75", then radius is half or .875

radius squared is .7656 x 3.1415 = 2.4 square inches

160 feet pipe = 1920 inches

2.4 square inches x 1920 = 4618 cubic inches

Then convert cubic inches into gallons:

If water is hot, then that can affect final calculation

I don't have the number for you, but I can offer a method for measuring it. First, the next time you do laundry, set the water level switch to where you will use it for the dyeing task. With the lid open, but with no clothes inside, turn on the washing machine. Observe and note the level of the water when the machine stops filling. Measure the depth of the water. Add clothes and detergent and wash in the usual manner - you don't need to waste that water.

Next, pour four gallon jugs of water into a clean five-gallon pail, and mark the level in the pail (four gallons in the pail is much easier to handle than a brim-full five gallons). Pour that into the machine, and measure the depth. Put in another four gallons of water, and measure the depth again. If the bottom part of the agitator is covered by the first four gallons, you can can calculate from the increase in depth made by the second four gallons how many more gallons you need to get to the fill depth. (The bottom of the agitator takes up more volume per inch of depth than the center and top,) If the bottom of the agitator is not covered by the first four gallons, but is covered by the second four, then add a third four-gallon pour and measure the depth once more.

Here is an example measurement: water depth on chosen load size setting: 16 inches.

Depth on first four gallons: 2 1/2 inches (some of the water is under the bottom of the inner tub). The agitator bottom taper is almost covered, but not quite.

Depth on second four gallons: 7 inches. The water level is above the bottom section of the agitator, so from this point the water depth will increase by the same amount per gallon added.

Depth on the third four gallons: 11 inches. We can now see that from this point, adding four gallons makes the water level go up four inches, so to reach the 16 inch mark,we need five more gallons. The total will be 4+4+4+5 = 17 gallons.

For what it's worth, there's about 7.48 gallons per cubic foot. If your machine's outer tub holds an additional cubic foot of water, my example numbers may be roughly what you will get.

(1.5ft)^2 * Pi * 30 ft * 62.4 lbs/cu-ft = 13232.4 pounds plus the weight of the pipe which will vary depending on the material of the pipe.

You can find the weight of the pipe if you know the brand and material as most manufacturers will list the weight per foot in their catalog.

30 feet has about 11.94 cubic feet of whatever material the pipe is made of.

3.14 x Diameter x Diameter / 4 x length= Volume in Cubic inches
Diameter and Length are in inches.

Multiply the above volume by 0.004 to get gallons.

That is your problem.

The plastic supply lines over time deteriorate and wind up causing the water to smell.

Replace the plastic line with a stainless steel ice maker water supply line available at any home improvement center. They are 1/4 inch inside diameter lines and fittings.

They come in 5/10 and 20 foot lenghts.

After you do this run about 2 gallons of water through the water in the door dispenser. Discard the first 3 drops of ice from the ice maker.

Your ice quality will improve.
