    Rain water under rubber liner????

    I began digging my new pond a few weeks ago, but have since stopped due to bad weather. The hole in my yard was about four and a half feet deep, and one night we had about five inches of rain, and in the morning the pond was filled with rain water all the way to the top! I was very confused by this and wondering if this will put a stop to my hopes of a nice in ground pond. I'm concerned about the effect that this might have on my liner. Is this a problem that will put a stop to my pond? Or are there other liner options that I should look into? Thanks in advance for the help and advice.

    Once the liner pond is filled, there could be a problem if rain water runoff can go into the pond. Is that the case? If it is, you will need to raise the sides of the pond to be above rain water runoff.
