9 cubic feet is actually 56.06 Imp. Gall., Sue. The figure I quoted equates to eight and a half gallons which is what you would get from an inch of rain over the surface area you quoted.
: Thanks George ........... Your answer answered Andy's question - how many
: gallons is 9 cubic feet of water ? ... LOLOL ....
: LOL That's like asking how long is a piece of string, Sue. It depends
: entirely on how heavily it it raining. However, as a guide, if we assume
: that an inch of rain falls during that period the amount falling on the roof
: would be a fraction under 53 Imp. Gallons. (52.944993 to be more precise
: I would guess that a couple of days of steady but not really heavy rain
: would be about an inch.
