Pond liner arrived 50' x 100' roll and over 400 lbs.
It is a tetra liner 2nd nature Firestone. It took four people to get the liner to my yard.
A few small rocks are laid on the liner to help keep the wrinkles to minimum while filling the pond.
The tank on the left is a fiberglass 100 gallon biological filter.

The pond is full of tap water with 15 bottles of chlorine remover dumped in. i put in a few plants and finished laying sandstone around the edge. 3 feet of liner is exposed so rain water will run down in the yard instead of in the pond.  I also installed a four inch spillway in the back of the pond for over flow.
