    I have been trying to figure out pond liners.

    I bumped into this one and the price shocks me......

    Why is this so much cheaper then most any other liners I have found? Is it because it is all 5' wide?

    exactly, you won't have pond, but more like a very short and very narrow ditch!

    LOL.

    I have a small area I was thinking of putting a long but narrow pond in.

    But now that you mention it.......if there is any depth to it then 5' would certainly not be enough. It will probably end up being like 2' wide! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    check out billboard tarps. i just used one to cover a hoop coop and my buddy used one as pond liner. You can get huge ones pretty cheap.

    The price for this is comparable to what other pond liner stores online are charging. Course you have to add around $20 (or more) for shipping which would increase the final price further.

    The reason it's only 5' wide is it's being sold for one of those "artificial stream" or waterfall setups, not for a pond.

    You could use it for a duck thing, but as the above poster says, you'd have a sort of trough-shaped thing.
