Need Pond Leaking Advice
Hi, I've been having a leaking problem in my pond which is making me pull my hair out. I have a 30 ft waterfall, with a pond which is 13' by 10' and 2 ft deep. I have checked the pond on multiple occasions, and over winter, the pond section, does not loose water. However, I am continually looking roughly 3-4 inches of water a week, when the waterfall runs. This is a brand new pond, installed last year by a contractor. He was up twice to find two leaks already, and I hate to say that my brand new liner already has two patches in it. Now the waterfall has 3 steps, the first is set up terrible, water comes over nice but dumps into a kind of hole that causes splash sending droplets 2 feet. The other two are nice,with normal splash. We did use very large rocks in making this, there is a fabric under the liner.I will post pictures of my pond in gallery. Do you believe that this is just splash? I know my fish are loving the constant water change but my water bill is not.
I have ran the edges of the waterfall, they did a good job leaving pleanty of excess liner. From what I can tell, water is not going over the edge of the liner. I have no mud spots, which I thought I would losing so much water.
