Hello friends, I have recently dug a new pond. My pond is 4' in the ground (concrete totally) then an additionally 3' cinder block up above ground. I finished the entire wall with mortar. Then sealed the entire interior with a product called POND SEAL. Filled pond up. ALL WATER LEAKED OUT except about 5" in the bottom. Next I consulted a local Pond expert. He said use Herculiner truck bed liner(same product as a pond SEAL sold by that company but marketed much cheaper) Coated the interior with one(1) coat, and filled pond up. I did see improvement. But after 5 days I am at about 3' left in pond. I did notice that I had seepage at the mortar joint connection between the in-ground concrete and the above ground cider block structure. But I can't figure out the issue with the below ground water loss. Should I apply a second coat of the Herculiner? Or is there any thing I can add to the water that will find the seep points a fill them? Or just drain the whole thing and buy a plastic liner to fit into the structure? Any answers?
