There is sealing options once you discover the hole or tear. Allow pond to drain down to it's stable level and investigate. The liner material will dictate what your repair options are. Firestone Pond Liner or Pond King EPDM liner can be best sealed with a piece of "cover" tape - a single sided heavy repair option that bonds very well. Clean with a epdm solvent first or Coleman fuel if you can't find that. The solvent makes EPDM very tacky (wear gloves) application is much like fixing a bicycle tube.

I have an octagon Afinaity pond but it seems to be leaking losing the water slowly can i get just a replacement liner for the pond and where or will I have to buy a knew entire pond


It could be simple evaporation. If you can't see any leaks anywhere or wet spots. Especially if you are in an area where daily Temps have been really high you will lose quite a bit of water to evaporation.

SMALL HOLE BOTTOM OF 15 x 4 metal frame pool. believe a small pebble caused it. water leaking out is there a way to save the poolwithout draining and taking it apart?


Try this....
You will need;
Pool liner patch kit
Goggles
Body weight to hold you down while doing repair under water.

Most liner repair kits have instructions on wet applications. Cut a piece of the liner kit fabric to cover the entire hole plus at least 1/2" around. You will need to dive in with a mask/goggles to see the hole. Put a thin layer of glue on the patch and spread evenly.. Fold in half on the glue side and go down to the bottom of the pool. Note...The weights will help you stay at the bottom for this part of the repair.. QUICKLY!!! while holding the patch next to the hole. open the patch and place on the hole and push firmly for a few seconds. Come up and place your foot on the patch and hold for 3 minutes or so. Should work...It took me several times to master this technique when I had a hole at the bottom of my pool... Caution!!! You don't need a lot of weight to stay at the bottom. Test from light to heavy until you think you have enough to do the repair..
Good luck and hope this will help you!! If this works for you, please rate!

What size hole need to be dug to fit the liner?


The Koolatron Koolscapes 84 Gallon Pond Kit contains a 6x6 foot liner. The actual dimensions of the pond could be varied but you will want a 6-10 inch overlap on the bank. Basically depth x2 + width = 5ft. 2-6in. So approximately 1ft deep by 3ft. across. If you are planning on keeping koi 2ft. deep is the bare minimum 3ft. if you have freezing conditions so I wouldn't recommend it with a pond of this size.

I am stumped. I have a rather large water garden in my back yard, approx 20 x 20 and around 2 1/2ft deep. The pump pushes the water up a slight incline approx 30 yds long to the filter, and the water...


It sounds very much like a deep slow leak from your garden or in the stream bed. The pump is probably sinking do to its overall weight and vibration when it is running. I would recommend probing the area and look for pooling or mud. If it is a subduction leak it can eventually threaten structures in the area.

Leak in formed pond


It worked for one season on mine. As the crack got older it became longer and wider. Mine was due to not sinking the pond all the way into the ground which caused stress from the weight of the water causing it to crack more. The second season I used a water epoxy putty I bought at home depot in the glue dept. It is greenish blue and turns white after mixing and can be used underwater if necessary. I filled the gap and then placed the repair liner like you are showing over the top and sealed the edges with a black waterproof silicone. This also worked for a season. Now the crack is even larger and wider and nothing I am doing this year is holding! I can't seem to find one the same size and shape or I would replace it. My next attempt is going to be a plastic welding kit, but I haven't tried it yet. Good luck.

Water loss in pool, but no hole in liner


The only problem is that ther is a leak in the liner. Generally at the bottom where a rock or debris has made a small hole. They can be patched but the pool will need to be drained. Call your local pool service company.

Question before purchase (existing pond)


You don't need a bulkhead if your liner is EPDM. You can use a boot that is attached with adhesive that will seal you pvc piping. I don' t see a problem with dirty water going thru the pump before the filters. for some diagrams of settling tank installations see:
