clay can be absorbent and not hold up to water .I built a wood one for my sister and lined it with pvc liner .I know the pvc will not hold up over time but it is more flexable .She saw one like it at lowes and sent me a pic and of course I built it for her .It was rectangle not square

You can look at stock water tanks and then add a surround to make them look better.

For a water trough? 40 or 110 gallon tuff stuff troughs. In general? At least 20 gallons, preferably bigger

I saw square stock tanks at a local place here .It was a garden store that sells a few fish ,so many you can find garden stores online and call them .I know the place up in the Shenandoah Valley of va carries square ponds of all sizes .Maybe you can find one near you

I'd just pick a pot you like and line it w/the EPDM liner. Prolly could just glue it to the inside easy. Go w/a planter w/hard sides like steel or the clay might work fine. Not sure how clay will hold up to freezing and thawing in your zone 5 area tho. If you go the liner route make sure it is a pot w/a hole in the bottom or it could get water freezing in between liner and pot and bust it apart. Maybe you would just be using it during the Summer?
