Thanks Lee Anne!

Do you have any pictures you could share?

We tried the Water Bed liner and it worked well.
The problem was we wanted to go bigger.

W/ our new one we went to a Clearance Sale at the local pet supply house.
We picked up a 20' x 10 ' 45mil EPDM rubber liner for 80 dollars US.
That was enough liner to do a 13 x 5 x 3' deep pond w/ plenty left for the waterfall.

For the Pump we found a new in the box Sump Pump at a Garage Sale years ago for about 20 dollars US.
The first time we tried in in our little 100 gallon preform pond it threw almost all the water straight up in one shot.
We had a geyser in the!

W/ the new 1200 gallon pond it works perfectly.
Runs a waterfall and brook w/ plenty of power left over.
