How to Build a Backyard Pond with a Liner to hold the Water.

As a weekend homeowner, you understand the importance of creating a serene and enjoyable space for your family. And what better way to enhance your backyard oasis than by adding a pond? Whether you're planning to keep fish or simply create a stunning water feature, installing a pond liner is a crucial step in creating a safe and welcoming environment for your aquatic companions. In this guide, we'll explore the steps involved in preparing your pond for a tank liner and why Permalon Aquaculture tank liners are an excellent choice for your project.

Step 1: Excavating the Pond:

The first step in preparing your pond for a tank liner is to excavate the area. Determine the size and shape of your pond, taking into consideration the needs of your fish and the available space. Carefully dig the hole, making sure to remove any sharp objects, rocks, or debris that could potentially puncture the liner. Smooth out the bottom and sides of the hole to create a level surface for the liner to rest on.

Step 2: Choosing the Right Pond Liner that is NON TOXIC to Fish!

When it comes to selecting a pond liner, Permalon Aquaculture stands out from the rest. What sets Permalon apart is its unique construction using an alloyed polyethylene cross-laminate. This patented material offers exceptional physical properties and an outstanding service life.

Most importantly, Permalon Aquaculture tank liners are non-toxic to fish, ensuring the health and well-being of your aquatic friends.

Step 3: Customization and Installation:

Permalon Aquaculture tank liners provide flexibility when it comes to customization. They are available in stock configurations for immediate availability or can be custom fabricated to fit your specific requirements. Whether you need a drop-in liner or a custom three-dimensional liner for unique structures, Permalon can accommodate your needs.

Installation of Permalon tank liners is a breeze due to their lightweight nature. This makes handling and positioning the liner within the pond a quick and efficient process. The liners are also UV stabilized, ensuring long-lasting performance and protection against the sun's harmful rays. Additionally, Permalon tank liners are cold-crack tested, guaranteeing continuous performance even in extreme temperatures.


Adding a pond to your weekend home can create a tranquil atmosphere and provide a beautiful habitat for your family fish. By choosing Permalon Aquaculture pond liners, you're selecting a high-quality, non-toxic solution that will protect your fish and ensure the longevity of your pond. The alloyed construction of Permalon tank liners resists punctures and tears, while the custom fabrication options allow for a seamless fit in your pond.
