When you start looking for pond liner for your pond there are a couple of things you want to keep in mind. Number one, you want to make sure that the liner you get is fish-safe and most liners are going to mention that. Now, if they are sold in a pond store or on a pond website, the odds are they are going to be fish safe, but you want to check that out and make sure it says fish friendly or fish safe somewhere on the webpage talking about that liner. There have been unfortunate instances in the past where people have used liners that were treated with chemicals. Let’s say for example, they were for a roofing job and liners were used sometimes as roofing in commercial projects, and if the liner has been treated with something that could be harmful to the fish, you will have an instant fish kill once you set up your pond.  So check for that. The other things to keep in mind when you are looking for liner, is the thickness of the liner and normally we recommend a 45 mil thick liner. Sometimes if you are using an elastomeric liner or something that is really stretchy and is made to instead of puncturing right away it kind of gives. Those could be a little bit less, but typically, your best value is going to be on a 45 mil  EPDM flexible liners. You can buy it by the roll or in a box.
