A well-installed liner doesn’t need a lot of direct maintenance.
Now that your excavation is fully renovated and ready for action, it’s time for the main event:
This is the ideal time to make adjustments, add protections, or add new features to your pond.
Once the pond is empty, and the liner is fully exposed, it’s time to remove it. But wait! In some cases, it may be a reasonable option to leave the liner there.
Sometimes the most mundane details are overlooked when you’re getting ready for a big project.
Once you’ve settled on replacement, you’re looking at a good chunk of work, so it’s wise to plan to make the most of your effort.
Repair is almost always the least expensive option, providing it is successful on the first try.
Most direct damage to the liner produces tears and punctures. A large hole near the surface of the water may be easy to identify and evaluate.
Once you’ve taken a shot at identifying the type of liner you’re working with, it’s time to try to identify the type, location, and cause of the leak, if possible.
Whether you’re dealing with a dry, semi-dry, or just a mildly leaky pond, take the time to see what’s there, a few inches or several inches into the dirt.
Artificial ponds come in all shapes and sizes and are used for almost every imaginable purpose

As you’re researching the best ways to build a pond, you’ll run into a lot of conflicting ideas and information.
Knowing how to choose the thickness of your pond liner is crucial.
Among pond liner materials, RPE, which stands for “reinforced polyethylene,” is one of the most popular, both for smaller garden ponds and large recreational or industrial use ponds.

Building a private fishing lake may seem like a big project just for something to share with friends and family.
Flexible liners solve a lot of the challenges of lining a large fishing lake, but they’re not all equally qualified for the task.
Gradual water loss is a silent killer of millions of pounds of fish per year.
The actual design of the fishing lake is more complex than you might think.
Choosing the right depth for the lake is essential to encouraging rapid fish growth and natural reproduction cycles.
Careful construction and design will result in a fishing lake that is leak proof as possible.
