Why don't you find a local store and avoid the cost of shipping?

I google searched "dallas pond store" turned up many places you can buy a liner. Much cheaper, no shipping, and talk to a person.

I agree, a lot of times you can even buy liner at local landscaping shops, too. I can't imagine Dallas wouldn't have a local place to buy liner. Bring a friend, as folded up liner can weigh a ton!

when it comes to something as heavy as that, shipping can kill ya for sure. Lots of folks don't have a local pond shop. I certainly don't have one with a good variety of food at a reasonable price locally, so I'll shop off-season and prowl for free shipping deals.

But I think you are right, lots of times it's cheaper right at home.

My obsession started with buying electronics online, as they are around 1/2 to 1/3 of the price at the local best buy and fry's and such. So I guessed it sort of branched out from there. But I agree about that shipping. Looks like I am headed to Dallas. Thanks for all the help, guys! ;)

I bought my liner from a roofing company 9 yrs ago and it was 60mls. They had it in lots of different sizes. Some other kinds of construction companies also carry it here and I bought more from one of these when I moved my pond and needed a bigger size. I didn't have any problem w/ it meaning none of my fish died from contaminants due to the rubber. I did rinse it off well before using. I wonder if anyone else has ever used this kind. :coolgleema:

Get the 45 mil Firestone and whatever you do, DON'T cut any of it. Fold whatever you dont need and cover with cround cover. Go with a bigger liner then you need to save now on the shipping. I orderd one fro pond store in Georgia(just liners inc.?) was the name I believe. Yes you pay some shipping but not that much. My local pond store wanted twice as much so even with shipping it was cheaper.

I wish I would have thought not to cut mine now that I read your post. Oh well better luck next time right :wave:

ahhh since you already bought it, my post wont help much, but for future reference look on craigslist, that where i found mine and it was cheeper then any online store and way cheeper then anything local, to get a 15x15 local was going to be close to 200 i got a 20x20 for 125.

I cut my first one too :wave: But it did give me some extra pieces to incorporate a stream and some side bog gardens. My new liner is just rolled up where not in use.
