my new garden pond when I put the water in the pond sinks a bit after 2 hours is this normal ?

Asked from the GoYpedia pond ideas page



No - it suggests you have a small leak somewhere. YOu might get some evaporation with no rain over a few days, particularly in hot weather, but not in two hours.

When you say new pond? I wonder how new and is it a non rigid liner? With a non rigid liner the water will appear to sink the first few times its filled as the liner settles fully into the pond

actualy relooking at your question if its a liner it could just be settling in and youl know then if its leeking just bye filling it up agaian to the brim wear it runs over and make a point of watching it . even a plastic or even a big fiberglass mould can suffer from subsidance as your talking of thousands o pouns of wieght in an averadge biggish pond ie mine . they can evaperate quit quickly but not 2 hours more like days realy .i hope this helps but you probably know now anyway .
