I have used a few bricks they have not bothered the pond. You may want to make a stand of pvc.
If you can find flat rocks they work great.

Put some excess liner below the rocks/bricks/stand to protect the pond liner.

I have used bread trays, milk carts, flower pots anything strong enough to hold the item I am putting on it.

Plastic shelves, milk crates, anything like that is fine. If you're concerned about your liner getting damaged, you can lay down a piece of scrap liner, rubber tub mat or something like that first.
