Rubber pond liner leak repair:

Vickie Benak
by Vickie Benak
the rubber liner in my pond has a leak towards the top of the pond. I have searched every inch to find a hole, tear, rip, etc and can't find it. The water level stays just above the lower shelves. It's too old and I don't want to take it all out. It will fall apart. Is there a spray sealant that I can use to completely cover the whole sides? I can't afford a new liner and it would be too much for me alone to take it apart. Any ideas? I have patches, but I can't find the leaks. HELP! There's no fish or plants in it.

That's the water level it stays at. Any water added to fill goes down to there.

    I had the same problem with the water disappearing from my pond. There was no holes it was the wind blowing it out from the fountain. I filled the pool with soil and faux water ie blue rubber mulch and put a cement alligator in it. Less work and lots of comments.

    How using some of that new Flex Seal Tape in comes in 3 widths, or buy a bike rubber repair kit, or a blow-up bed patch kit.
    As to find the leak, when ever we've tried to find leaks in other rubber products like rafts or blowup bed, we would smear the area where the suspected leak was with dish soap, then add air behind the area (bike pump) and watch for bubbles. Then circle with a grease pen and patch.

    add a little water to get it above the leak then carefully pour in milk a little bit away from the sides, making your way around the pond. Sometimes you can see the milk being pulled toward the leak.
