So you're thinking of putting in a cement pond? We're actually
talking about ponds for lily pads, fish, turtles and frogs
rather than swimming pools. The 4 major types of ponds are
cement, polymer sheet liner, rigid shell, and clay lined. They
all have different strengths and weaknesses. The "best" type of
pond for you may not be the best for someone else.
Here's some things to consider:
1. A properly constructed cement pond is not leak prone. Think
about how many swimming pools are in use and leak free in your
country and around the world. If cement swimming pools are in
widespread use in your area - sometimes soil conditions make
them impractical - then a cement pond is also realistic.
2. Cement ponds are the most puncture resistant type of pond. If
you live in an area with extremely cold Winters, special care
should be taken in the design and installation of the areas near
and above the waterline to avoid "freeze/thaw" damage.
3. They usually cost more than any other type of pond if you
hire someone else to do it. If you have some experience with
concrete work (or are willing to learn) cement ponds can be very
economical to install yourself. Portions of the pond can be made
from cinder/cement blocks.
4. Once installed cement ponds are not as easy to modify as a
plastic sheet liner pond so you should have a very good idea of
what you want. If you are really smart, you'll plan your pond
with future expansion in mind. Most people who get the "pond
bug" end up wanting bigger ponds and more ponds!
5. fact the lime in cement is poisonous to fish, However
neutralizers are available for this job and provide a far safer
environment for livestock. Also in zones where the winter
temperature drops sufficiently for the water to freeze then the
pond should have a minimum depth of 600mm (2ft) (preferably
1000mm (40")) and 50mm (2") of cement will not be thick enough
to prevent the ice from cracking it!
Watch out for ammonia and
nitrite levels rising, as early feeding can soon overburden a
seasonally immature filter. Feed and monitor water quality in
tandem and educate the filter to progressively handle more
