The calcuklation vs depth is fairly complicated. See post #2 of this thread:
http://forum.onlineconversion.com/showthread.php?t=5160

1 liter = 1 dm≥, so convert (or remeasure) to decimeters, 0.254 dm/in. You need to use inside measurements, or subtract two wall thicknesses from external measurements.

Using the dimensions above, the tank is 25.9 dm dia x 45.08 dm long. Volume of a cylinder is (pi/4)*D*D*L = 23765 L. (If those were external dimensions, it will be a little smaller)

Not all of the volume can be used for liquid, you must allow some head above the liquid to make provision for thermal expansion.
