Pond Liner with Lifetime Guarantee and FREE Underlay. Next Day Delivery

Strong and Durable.

Our flexible reversible pond liners have been keeping ponds watertight since 1974, and are GUARANTEED for LIFE

This liner is strong and durable with a strength enhancing, UV stabilised and rot resistant coating on each side of the liner. It comes in Black/Brown reversible finish, and is constructed of tri-laminate LDPE layers that are bonded together. The liner is approximately 0.35mm thick with a minimum weight of 200 grammes per square metre. It is flexible and easily shaped into the corners of your pond by making a few small folds; most thicker liners do not allow this flexibility. This is an excellent substitute for other heavyweight liners, such as Butyl and PVC, at much better value..

The liner is 2.5m, so the actual pond size will be much smaller depending on depth. Mine is roughly 2.5m square, but also over 1.5m deep so I used a 7m liner to be on the safe side (you need a bit spare all around).

Totally agree. A 1 meter Wide x 1Meter Long x 1Meter Deep Pond would be approx 3.5 meter each square of liner and underlay. This is only just about enough for a Bird bath.

How would you prevent it from overflowing when it rains?

You lose more to evaporation than you gain in rain, depending on depth.

You dont. You have a drain pipe set at the final height of the water as a"Overflow". Bury it under the edging stones or whatever you are surrounding the pond with.

nice if you like hundreds of frogs and mosquitos in your garden.

If you are serious about a pond stay away from this even tho its a good price ,buy yourself a proper fiberglass one with an all in one pump u/v filter that will last years and wont leak. Most people who buy ponds similar to this want a bigger one within a year as the fish grow.

Does the hole come included?

I like frogs! Mossies depend on plants so none really with a koi pond, but lots with a nature pond. That said it also brings in the animals that eat them so if its wildlife you want....

I'd disagree, its easier to rip this up and build a bigger should you want than a fibreglass one plus this will fit the exact size of whatever hole you dig. I'd also never go with an all in one as you have to get it out of the pond for maintenance, none of my equipment is in my pond.

hundreds of frogs (a good thing) will most likely mean zero mossies (also a good thing)

That was last year, when you previously posted the exact same text. How's the pond getting on now?

Hmmm decisions. My pond liner has been punctured by a heron. Do i try find and patch all the leaks or just lay this on top of the existing liner? I'll need a slightly larger size (3.5m x 2.5m) but that'll only be £20.

I'd re-line it mate, too much hassle! My new pond is raised about 50cm and so far not had a heron problem,it goes over a meter below ground as well though so it'd need a long neck!

Great for attracting rats to shoot if you have an air rifle

You don't need a pond to attract rats - they say no-one is much further away from a rat than 6' anywhere in a city or countryside. Anyone with drains running under their garden or a bird feeder will have rats, you might just not be aware of it

I wouldn't lay a new liner on top of the old as you can potentially create a water bubble between the two liners if water gets between the two. That will then lift the top liner potentially causing the this to come to the surface and leave the fish (if you have any) out of the water.

Good point, and as you need to rip up the edges anyway to lay it there's no real point keeping the old one down.

Our house had a pond when we bought it and it also came filled with Japanese koi fish. The pond needed constant filtering otherwise green lime collected on the water.

We really loved it when we first moved in as you could lie on the lawn and hear that peaceful water running from the constant filter. We tried our best to feed the fish but after a few months they started to die so we gave all the fish away and got the gardener to fill in the pond with earth and compost and grow plants in it instead.

I am now really put off when I see a property with a pond as I will just want to fill it up. Too much maintenance.

A lot depends on the setup of the pond. My house had a pond when I first moved in but it was overgrown with plant matter, I cleaned it up but it just wasn't built for fish, should have been a nature pond as only 30cm deep. I dug a new one approx 2.4m square and over 1m deep and built it with a liner, its been running for nearly 6 months now and I've not even had to clean the filter yet! I did learn from the mistakes of the first pond though, this time I fitted a bottom drain and constructed a pre-filter as a float chamber. The water is crystal clear.

Our pond was built for fish as the previous occupants have had the fish for a while. There were about 50 fish, it was a big pond. It had all the filter paraphernalia and it was crystal clear about 3 months after we moved in, then it became slightly green. I guessed we should have changed the filter or something as there were a shed load of stuff dedicated to the pond that the previous owner also left behind.

We just couldn't be bothered with doing any work and we were concerned for the well being of the fish as we had no idea about fish so it wouldn't be long before they all die as we don't know how to look after them properly.

The pond had a hard plastic lining, which the gardener had to smash up when he converted it to a rockery for plants.

Depending on setup I'd say possibly an air issue started killing them, I've had to add aeration to my filter as my waterfall doesn't add enough since I upsized. The green slime is algae, all ponds get it. Without a UV filter (must be changed at least once a year) its impossible to get rid of. Replace the UV bulb and it'll clear up in a few weeks. Blanket weed is the worst though, that stuff just trashes ponds.

TBH though if you have no interest in the fish its a lot of time and money, my pond eats a constant 220w!

The construction of my pond took quite a while due to rarely being at home, the fish lived in a paddling pol for over a year!
