Are you asking if this is a good price? Where is it coming from? I saw it on Webbs Water Garden store for about $140, but I believe you pay shipping. They do frequently have free shipping offers though. Just one comparison.

Currently webbs has obnoxious shipping, I was going to buy my liner from there, as they are so cheap but shipping overdid the price of the liner on other places.

I would say that isn't a bad price, although make SURE it is big enough, I got a 15x20 for my pond, and now I have only a 3 inch overlap on one side, showing I should have got a 15X25.

justliners.com or Webb’s are the cheapest usually depending on what they charge for shipping. My guess is $174 is probably right in there though with Webb’s and just liners after shipping.

Been looking at places for a 50’x50’ liner and those two places are the cheapest, but haven’t gotten serious enough to check shipping yet.

Early this year I bought an HDRPE liner from American Talapia. The shipping was free and the price was very good. I don't recall if they sell EPDM, but check them out.

I don't believe they sell any EPDM, but I found the same: very good pricing on HDRPE liners. I've never worked with the stuff before, though. What size did you get and how tough was it to form around your pond? Appears to be more puncture resistant and so much lighter.

If my memory serves me correctly, I paid around $140 (U.S.) for a 12 ft. X 20 ft. piece. Shipping was free to Mount Pocono, PA.

I used it to line my bog. My pond is EPDM and I though I'd give HDRPE a try when I added the bog.

They claim HDRPE doesn't need an underlayment for most circumstances. I didn't use one, so that saved some money.

It was indeed a lot stiffer than EPDM and way lighter in weight. I had to tuck and fold the turns and corners. Once you got the hang of it, it wasn't bad.

All in all, I'd definitely use it again.

Just make sure that it has the "R" for reinforced. You want HDRPE, not HDPE.

@poconojoe: Great. Thanks for the info. I will be installing mine in a roughly 20x40 free-form pond, but it will have several shelves and a few intricate details like a staircase into the deep end. Sounds like the staircase might make things complicated.

when I expanded last year, I paid $1200 including shipping from Washington state to Michigan, for a 40'x30' piece of hdrpe. It can be a real challenge to work the folds but I wasn't too concerned, even if I was putting it in a basic figure 8 shape. What made my job a lot more difficult is I refused to 'move' the herd out before I put in the new liner. That is, I set up the new portion (adjacent to the old), transferred the fish to cycled water, then dug the transition dirt wall out, dropped the new portion water level (new is 18" lower than the old), continued to install the larger liner, and then filled the rest of the way. To do this, I had to leave a 2' wall between old and new, so you can see, I had folds indeed to worry about, especially as I had to curve the new to the old and inside the waist of the figure 8. All made oh so much more fun by the fact my pond is enclosed and there's trees in the way!

And I have shelves, waterfall skirts, and a bog to cover with the liner.

Anyway, I second the use of hdrpe as a viable and much less costly if a bit more laborious, option for a pond.

I used a liner like that, back when I bought it call ppl36, that stuff is tough, easy to walk on, not a slippery as epdm, has survived deer hooves walking on the stream, falling in the pond and digging their way out. I did not have a lot of issues installing it.

Bend tarp and liner in oregon is where I got mine.
