Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by doitright Had high hopes; was very disappointed.
First let me say, we have had yard ponds for years in our old house. Building and maintaining ponds is nothing new to us. Having one perform so poorly, however, is new to us. We purchased this kit for our new house with high hopes it would be our largest and best pond ever. No such luck. The kit came with everything you are supposed to need for a proper pond. We followed instructions and after getting it all set up things went well.......for about a month. After 3 weeks one of the pond lights burned out. We left it alone, figuring we would repair it in the fall. Another month goes by, we go out one morning, and half the water is gone. The liner had failed after only two months use. We left it in place half full as winter was almost upon us; too late to repair anything. The only thing that did well in the kit was the pump, so far. But this is a lot of money to pay for a pump. And the failed liner? Good for covering wood but not much else. This spring we opted to go back to the ponds we know and have had great luck with; the preformed hard plastic type. Don't waste your time and money on liner kits. Get a preformed hard plastic liner. They last.
