Default concrete pond probs


The top skimmed surface of my pond is in poor health and I an now
considering either re skimming with concrete or applying a fibrglass
coat. If skimming with concrete what is the best product/mix. If I go
the fibre glass route will it adhere to the painted surface of the
pond?

in 2 years or less "sweater" algae will cover the liner a nice green color. Ingrid

Lining a concrete pond w/ EPDM? Not sure why, it is already leak proof

I was referring to the top edge of the liner which will have to be held
down w/ something from slipping back in the pool and using rocks or
something to hide it.

I was apropos to the top bend of the liner which will accept to be held down w/ something from bottomward aback in the basin and application rocks or something to adumbrate it.
