    Roof membrane

    Can this be used as a liner for a pond?

    Yes...just make sure that it doesn't have fire retardant in it and that you give the side that you're going to use a good scrub to remove the talc...other than that you're good to go.

    Keep in mind that now days you can get pond liner pretty damn cheap so that there's no work involved and in a lot of cases with free shipping

    I need one 20 x 30 and the best price I can find around here for pond liner is 1.15 per square ft. I thought about looking on line but I figured the shipping would be to much.

    The place that has it says they are rubber how can they be fire retardant. I don't know what to do I don't want to get it if it's going to be bad for the koi

    EPDM/rubber membrane can be manufactured with chemicals in it that make fire retardant...this you do not want. The product info sheet will state whether it's a fire retardant membrane or not...it'll also be more expensive than one that isn't.

    Check around on line you'll be surprised
