TJ-

I've just read through this entire thread. Very interesting. Initially I was looking at Damit but now I'm sold on the 2 part polymer in case I need it.

I have a 1 acre lot on a slope overlooking the Arkansas river in Broken Arrow, OK. A lot of sandy soil to say the least. 1/4 of my property is a deep and steep 'canyon' about 30ft wide with steep walls on either side. I'm having a contractor come in a week to excavate about a 100ft x 30ft strip through that canyon, using the best material he can find there to berm up the end. He'll install 2 culvert pipes in the dam as overflow. I have 10 drains from various ground catch basins and downspouts that collect at this one area, water from much of my neighbors' lots and my lot. So I get a lot of water drainage that moves through there. Instead of watching the canyon get deeper and wider, I thought I'd build a little pond.

Can you get me started on a plan for what to watch for and when to possibly act on treating with the polymer?

Thank you,

Steve

There is a decorative PVC film pond on the property, which is leaking a lot - somewhere torn. Our neighbors covered the pond with thick polyethylene film. It lasted three years.
I was thinking, if the pond is leaking - maybe it's better to pump out the water, dry it out and see if the damage is not critical, then seal it with a suitable sealant https://sealwithease.com/concrete-sealer/.
Another question: can I top it with something else, less expensive, for a 32.81-foot pond?
Will a thick plastic sheeting hold the water?

Thick sheeting should work for awhile. However it is succeptible, over time, to sunshine.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

The polymers work very well.

BTL (Bend Tarp Liner) makes lightweight liners that are guaranteed for 10 to (I believe) 25 years UV rating. They last a LOT longer than that if you cover them with soil. They also don't require a goetextile fabric underlayment. The thinnest one is very lightweight, I had them spec out one for a 1.25 acre pond and it weighed around 4,000 pounds - all one piece.
