How much Bentonite Clay for Ponds does my Pond needs?

The application rate varies depending on the type of soil of your pond. It can go anywhere from 2 lbs per square foot to more than 5 ponds per square foot, depending on how porous the soil i8s. For soils that have some percentage of clay content, using 2 lbs per square foot is usually enough. For silty soils, they are usually around 3 lbs per square foot. For sandy soils, about 4 lbs per square foot. For soils that are mostly composed of rock or gravel, you require at least 5 lbs per square foot.

Keep in mind these quantities are approximations and different ponds can have different needs.

Type Of Soil Bentonite required
Rock or Gravel 5 lbs per sqft
Sand Soil 4 lbs per sqft
Silt Soil 3 lbs per sqft
Clay Soil 2 lbs per sqft

Bentonite Clay for ponds opinions

Chris PedersenChris Pedersen ★★★★★ Working with Lonestar was a pleasure from the start to the finish of the project. Ricardo (Rick) came out to walk the area and discuss the best option, and provided a detailed estimate within a couple days of initial contact. Next was meeting Joseph and his crew that did the excavation and application of the Bentonite. The process moved really quickly considering the work involved, and the entire team was extremely personable and professional. Overall I was very pleased with the entire experience and would recommend Lonestar to any potential customer without hesitation.jake spruielljake spruiell ★★★★★ I called in with a question and was fortunate to speak with a gentleman named Rick. He was very helpful and it was evident that he has the experience to answer any question asked with respect to their products. He went above and beyond in helping me and had a tremendous amount of patience. If you're sealing a pond and need sodium bentonite... I suggest you call Rick.Thomas FathereeThomas Fatheree ★★★★★ Product, service and pricing were excellent! I bought a pallet of Bentonite from Diego at Lonestar GTC Minerals and highly recommend checking with them for prices and product when planning out a job. Thanks Diego!Debra CribbDebra Cribb ★★★★★ Ric was extremely helpful and arranged 90,000 lbs of product transported by polite and on time trucking. We undoubtedly would recommend Ric and his team for your project!Marc BoucherMarc Boucher ★★★★★ Rick & Art did a wonderful job on expanding our 1/4 acre pond to a 3/4 acre pond that did not hold water. They were very professional and lived up to their promises!Thank you!Gary RylanderGary Rylander ★★★★★ Very professional group to work with. Everyone communicates well with you as a client and with each other. They also took photos along with texting updates which was helpful for documentation.Would highly recommend them.amy storyamy story ★★★★★ Extremely professional and very easy to work with. They provided us with a great product in a very timely manner. I highly recommend working with lone star materials!Chad RuttenChad Rutten ★★★★★ Ricardo was great! From the time I started talking with him until the time that they were completed with the project was around a few weeks. Our pond was only about a quarter acre, but meeting timeliness and responsiveness in this day and age is hard to find and brings a lot of value to the customer. They did a great job getting everything cleaned up after they were completed with the project. Now we are just waiting for some rain so we can get our pond filled. If I ever need another pond to be sealed, or if I decide to increase the size of this pond, I will be calling these guys again. I would recommend them to anyone who need a pond sealed. Thanks, Ricardo, and thanks to your team!Hat CreekHat Creek ★★★★★ Lonestar did a FANTASTIC job on my pond sealing. The application of material was very deliberate and reshaping of the pond will add a lot of surface area. Would highly recommend them and will be using them on my next pond!!!Edward HerbertEdward Herbert ★★★★★ This is the 5th contractor to attempt to put a pond in for our ranch, we can't wait to see the final product. Rick and Alex were great very professional. They took care of everything they said they were going to take care of.js_loader
