Pond has a leak ! What to do ?

Postby Brian » Mon Sep 07, 2020 2:17 pm

The garden pond must be 10 years old at least, we moved here three years ago. It is heart shaped, about 3-4m diameter. The liner is held under granite pavers all around the edge.
It is now dropping the level by 2/3 inches per day and I keep having to top it up as it has goldfish and plants etc in it.
What can I do ?
Is the only option to get someone in to remove all the pavers from the lip and empty the pond, saving as much as possible, and then have a new liner put in ?
Any advice appreciated.

Hi brian
Yes putting in a new liner is the only solution.
