    Pipe boot?

    Has anyone here used a pipe boot to go through the side of a liner pond?

    Or know anybody who has?

    And how that worked out?

    I have used pipe boots many, many times and never had one leak. My creek has a 900 gallon pool at the top of it. I even used a pipe boot in the bottom of that, for a drain line. I did it reversed though, so the hose clamp is under the liner. It was a little difficult, but it worked great and looks wonderful. My new pond has two 4" pipes coming through the side wall and I used pipe boots on those too.

    GREAT!!! Thanks, CarolinaGirl

    I think a pipe boot is something I can actually do myself.

    Any tips you have would be appreciated. I do have Greg Bickel's CD that has a section on pipe boots.

    I'm especially tickled that you used pipe boots on 4" pipe through side walls as that is exactly what I need. That is really good news.

    not really much I can add other than Greg' instructions. Just be sure to cut the hole smaller than you think you need...you can always make it bigger if you have to. And be sure to use a scrap piece of liner on top of the pond liner so that it protects the actualy liner from being cut by the hose clamp. I always wrap a piece of scrap liner around the hose clamp once I am done too, to keep the fish from getting against it. If you have never done a pipe boot before, play with a piece of scrap to get a feel for it before cutting your pond liner.

    YES! Practice! Shamefully, I wouldn't have thought of that.

    Okay, googled it and went to dreampond.com but all I could find was up to 2" and it looks like they're tangential pond returns? Did I miss something? I'm coming from a retro bottom drain and out the side of the liner.

    Shouldn't you be answering the question about "pipe boots"?
    Can you provide a picture or a link?
