The biggest mistake in ordering a pond liner is ordering one that is too short. Make sure your measurements include the depth on both sides, and ledges, and enough to go under the perimeter rocks (3 ft on each side), and over the top of a cascading waterfall. You don't want to discover as your installing the liner that you are a foot too short.
Many if not most professional pond designers and installers use 20 mil thick PVC. Some worry about the cold weather brittleness of PVC. Homeowners tend to want a no hassle pond liner and use 30, 45, and even 60 mil thick material that is much more difficult to install because of its greatly increased weight. A 20 mil PVC liner weighs .13 pounds/sq ft. A 30 mil PVC liner weighs .2 pounds/sq ft. A 45 mil EPDM liner weighs .3 pounds/sq ft. A 60 mil EPDM liner weighs .4 pounds/sq ft.
UPS will ship liners up to 140 lbs. Over 140 lbs we need to ship by truck. Most trucking companies charge $25 to $30 extra to deliver to a residential address (if you can have it delivered to a commercial address you save the $25 - $30). Shipping charges vary from about $25 to about $75 depending on weight and distance. We also ship internationally.
Repair of PVC liners is very quick and easy, and can even be done under water.
