How does the flexible liner work?

The Flexible Liner

At one time, creating water features required hiring landscaping professionals and pouring concrete. With the advent of the flexible liner, creating your own water feature has become easier for every homeowner. The flexible liner is a large sheet which can conform to any shape or can be sized accordingly. The flexible liner creates a waterproof barrier over anything from a dug pit in the garden to an area above brick. They may be polyethylene, which is less expensive but difficult to repair. They can be PVC (polyvinyl chloride), which is more affordable, but toxic to fish and plants. They can be EPDM (ethylene-propylene-diene-monomer), which is more expensive, but durable and often comes under warranty. They can also be butyl rubber, which is the most expensive and difficult to find, but very durable.
