Help the environment by using natural clay to seal your pond. While other traditional liners are made of materials that can take several hundred years to degrade, bentonite doesn’t have this effect on the environment.
Bentonite saves you the trouble of dealing with tears, punctures and repair kits. If something “tears” the bottom of the pond, the bentonite granules readjust to keep the bottom of the pond sealed and without leaks.
Almost any farm or ranch has available the tools required to apply bentonite pond liner. It is fairly easy and a good DIY project. Of course, you can also get a team to manage the bentonite pond liner installation if you prefer.
Your investment will be worth each cent. Ponds and lakes lined with bentonite are able to hold water over decades without needing to renew or patch up their pond liner.
