I have a 1/2 acre pond I've been working on filling and I'm noticing I'm losing about 6-8in per night and then I continue to fill the next day and so forth.
My pond is in sandy/clay mix and unfortunately wasn't compacted. I'm trying to be optimistic that it will seal up in time as the first 6ft seemed to seal over the summer a few rains and silting
During a first fill is it pretty common to lose a lot to initial saturation? I'm above the water table on top of thick blue clay so I'm hoping it'll seal eventually.
