Gardens Leaking pond
a hole in my pond liner - can it be repaired and is it a big job?
it can be repaired, and yes, it may be a big job. Finding the leak
is usually the hardest part. The usual procedure is to let the water
level drop until the leak stops. This means the hole will be at
water level for you to locate and inspect. If the liner is PVC,
use a repair kit to patch it up. If it's Butyl rubber, there is
a vulcanising tape that will fix the job cheaply. Ensure that the
surface to be repaired is clean and dry.
