    Polyurea Contractors in Northern California

    Does anyone have any recommendations? I am looking for a contractor for a 8,000 gallon concrete pond.

    thanks

    Not sure of the guys name at the ZNA Gardena show/I think he did Mystic koi big pond.
    He said he was $10 a sq ft plus extra for bottom drains and returns.

    Someone should know his companys name

    Yep.............that is the right guy out of Torrance, Ca. I meet him through Kent wallace about 2 yrs ago. He was also at the San Diego show as well, and also at the Las Vegas show.

    Thanks for the info. I spoke to Paul. He seems like a very knowledgeable guy when it comes to pond construction. I am now debating whether Polyurea is really worth the cost. It is very expensive, as opposed to using an EPDM liner.

    Any suggestions?

    EPDM Liner is only cheaper in the short term. The level of attention and protection you build into installing it will give it a lifetime of 10 to 20 years if you're lucky, Then you get to do it again. I've seen many last less than 5 years. Polyurea when applied correctly is probably 75 to 100 years which means you won't be replacing it in your lifetime.
    That makes it cheaper in the long run.
