The two most famous types of pond liners are flexible and rigid liners. Flexible liners are made up of strong and flexible materials, like plastic, that can last for almost 20 to 25 years. These liners come with UV protection that increases their durability. Still, there comes a time when repairs are needed.
For small repairs that take less time and effort, you can always use repair tapes. These tapes are specially designed to repair the smallest of tears and holes that are visible over the pond liner. You can always use single sided pond liner tapes (6-inch tape), for the same.
Before starting, make sure that you have removed all the water and the rough materials from the pond. Clean up the liner using naphtha or such cleaners. Apply the tape on the affected area by giving even pressure on all sides of the tape.
Plastic Pond Liner Repairs
- Black water tank (holding tank)
- Quality primer
- Patch material
▶ Apply primer on the affected area. Before applying the glue, make sure that the primer has totally dried off. When the glue is partly dry, stick the patch material over it and press until it has attached firmly to the glued surface.
▶ Let the liner stand for at least 6 hours before the follow-up of the damaged area. If there are more signs of the damage, then you will have to repeat the whole procedure all over again.
