Lots of people use it in koi ponds but apparently fibreglass is a lot better but obviously far more expensive I take it your all concreted then ?

That's the thing jook I don't want creases thine things to look clean (ocd if you like lol). Another thing is I am not into a black pond and only seen black pond liners so that's another reason I am looking down the route of paint. I will be having koi in pond mate

How do I work out how much fibreglass I will need? For 6ft x 8ft x 4ft deep ?

Just so I can see what sort of price it would be cheers

Cream surly once the pond got establish the algaie that will start to grown on the pond walls and bottom would be no point in having it cream a guy I know used blue pond liner and paid extra for it and all only for it to end up the same as a black liner once the Algie grew
