Paint for ponds..Kiddie pool

Your just asking for trouble... Spend the few extra bucks to get a
real liner. They make paint for ponds but it costs 36 bucks a gallon.
And even if you used it you'd still have garbage. For 136 bucks you
can have a real, UV prtected pond liner from WalMart or Home Depot
that you'll be MUCH happier with... Don't mean to belittle your idea
But as a pond owner, commercial pond caretaker, and avid aquacuturist
I have heard all the cheap ways to build a pond and seen people after
doing so have to start all over, doing it right. I'd have answered
your message via E-Mail but your address was not listed correctly.
