You have a leaky pond. It only holds water for a short time and then drains down fairly quickly.
A pond is carefully designed to collect and hold water for livestock, for wildlife, for fishing, and just for tranquil beauty. But you are looking at a dry hole or a mud lolly that does not fill up and hold water for an extended time. it’s common problem. Your pond bottom is composed of porous soil types that are prone to water loss by seepage.
Pond Sealer is the solution you are looking for.
This water loss can be controlled by the application of Pond Sealer. Pond Sealer is a high swelling, chemically unaltered, sodium bentonite that contains no additives. This high quality Sodium bentonite swells to several times its size and creates an excellent watertight seal that holds your water. Pond Sealer is completely safe for farm and ranch animals, fish and waterfowl.
Here is your soil and pond assessment process.
1. Soil Test. This will reveal the soil porosity you have in your pond bottom and how much Pond Sealer is needed. The more porous the soil, the more bentonite is required to create a seal. Click here for Soil Test instructions that you can follow at home.
2. What are the dimensions of the pond? We will need length and width if Pond Sealer is needed.
3. What is the depth of the pond? An additional 25% to 50% more bentonite could be needed on large scale projects to allow for greater water depths (water pressure) in the bottom of the pond.
4. Are all side slopes of your pond at 45 degree angles or less? (so the Pond Sealer will stay in place)
