I like that option also.....sounds much better and reliable...

Have to figure out how much it would cost.

Hmmm...just worked out my pond would be about 1800sqm of surface area to cover with chook wire and cement.

Thing is with cement that you will no doubt get fine cracks and maybe bigger cracks.....seen it many times in ponds and then it'll leak.

He wanted it lined to keep water in and keep it clear. So they dug a shelf around the edge, about half a metre below the surface/edge, then lined the hole pond with the simple black pvc plastic and the company that supplied it, welded it altogether.
It sat just on the edge of the shelf and then the last little bit between the edge of the shelf and the grassed area was soil, so they could grow plants around the edge up to the drop off.
4 years later and it does not leak, it is clear water and he simply tops it up from the bore, not sure how often this is done, but did not sound excessive.
The total cost for the liner was 15,000b he said.

Nawty,do you have contact info for this company? Their price sounds really low for a pond this big ( the quote from SCV Plastics for .25mm pvc for my ponds comes in at around 23baht/m2).

I am going to construct a pond on my land up north. The soil is sandy and does not hold water well at all. I need to find a supplier of pond lining material. The link given in this thread seems to go to a website which is no longer working. If anybody can advise a supplier of pond liner material in Thailand it would be much appreciated.

It would be easier if you say where up north. Somebody might have addresses near you.
I suppose that HomeWorks, HomePro and the other hardware-type stores should have what you are looking for.

I am based in Chiyaphum. I have checked the Homepro/Homeworks and other similar places but they dont have what I'm looking for. Also had a look on the internet but not easy to identify suppliers for this type of material in Thailand.

Pond footprint will be about 4000 square meters by about 10-15m deep so will need a lot of membrane material.

If I can locate the right supplier I can travel to collect in a pick up or truck. BKK wouldnt be a problem.

Suggestions appreciated.

Hi chiyman we were almost neighbours i have a place 1/2 hour out of chaiyaphum direction
of khaen khan ?? its a little place khaen khro although by thai standards biggish due to the faliure of my house sale twice still in uk
what you need is an apeal to the oracle of the north who must be mega busy as he has not visited the forum in a while JAZZMAN will tell you where to buy a left handed screwdriver in the area
khaen khan may be your best bet its an hour or so for me so you are looking at a couple of hours good luck finding it
my comments may be wrong but never deliberately
If it aint broke, dont fix it

Thanks for the information Geordie. Maybe Jazzman will pick this up and give me the benifit of his wisdom.

I did meet a friend of a friend in Khaen Khro who runs the local driving range (drigolf)- a mutual friend?

Thanks for this Robertkc - it really helps a lot. I have sent e-mail to both suppliers and hope they come up with a sensible solution and price. I'll Get the Mrs. to have a chat with Pornchai at SCV. She can often get construction materials cheaper than the Falang.
