Calculating your Own Evaporation Rates
You can expect 1/2%-1% of the total gallons per hour, per day to be lost to evaporation.
These calculations are for the Midwest: it will work for most of the country except Arizona and other hot, dry climates. These numbers are an average and will fluctuate throughout the season. They are meant to give you an idea of about how much water loss your feature has per day. Evaporation continues to increase as the amount of water flowing through the atmosphere increases along with the increased splashing and vaporization of water as it crashes over boulders. The variations are used according to the site conditions. Full sun and full wind will be 1% and a sheltered pond will be 1/2%.
3,000 GPH pump
1/2% = 15gallons/day
1% = 30gallons/day
The next question or answer you need is how much water is 1" of water loss in a given pond.
11'x16' pond = 176 sq. ft. If it was a rectangle x .85 for irregular shape = 150 sq. ft.
150 x .62 gallons/sq.ft. X 1" deep = 93 gallons
3000 GPH pump x 1/2% = 15gallons x 7 days = 105 gallons/week or 1" of water loss/week.
Try it on your personal pond or other pond your familiar with to double check the calcs, adjust as necessary.
