    First and foremost thanks for posting and welcome here!

    a liner is as good as it's support. is it going in the ground? is it going into a framed wooden box. How big is the pond? how deep? I'm not trying to be difficult but only wanting to let you know there is a lot to be considered when

    your selection is decided. I would suggest if others are using it in your part of the world then I would also. So much is at stake here that I don't want you to make a hasty decision and then have your hopes and koi's health dashed because of problems.

    I hope you won't take offense to anything I've said!

      I have 45 mil liner, butyl, and it withstood numerous tree limbs smashing into the pond during hurricanes last August/September. Flagstones broke under the branches that fell, but the liner held up. I have had 30mil in the past on a lily pond. After 10 years it began to lose elasticity and easily developed holes. But for 7 or 8 years, it was fine. Biggest issue with liners is catching waste in folds, and having unstable edges.

        If you live in a topical region with a temperature of 30-34 degree most of the year you woudn't want to use a liner.
