  1. Remove any existing liners or debris: The first step in preparing your pond for fibreglass installation is to remove any existing liners or debris. This includes removing any plants, rocks, or other objects that may be in the way. It’s also important to remove any old liners to ensure a clean and even surface for the fibreglass to adhere to.
  2. Check for leaks: Before installing your fibreglass liner, you’ll need to check your pond for any leaks. This can be done by filling the pond with water and allowing it to sit for a few days. If the water level drops significantly, you likely have a leak that needs to be addressed before installation.
  3. Clean the pond: Next, you’ll need to thoroughly clean the pond to remove any dirt, algae, or other debris that may be present. Use a pond vacuum or a net to remove any debris, and scrub the sides of the pond with a stiff brush to remove any built-up dirt or algae. It’s important to remove all debris and clean the pond thoroughly to ensure proper adhesion of the fibreglass liner.
  4. Fill in any cracks or holes: If you find any cracks or holes in your pond during the cleaning process, you’ll need to fill them in before installing the fibreglass liner. You can use a pond sealant to fill in any cracks or holes, ensuring that the surface is smooth and even before installation.
  5. Allow the pond to dry: After cleaning and filling any cracks or holes, allow the pond to dry completely before installing the fibreglass liner. This will ensure that the surface is dry and ready for installation.

In conclusion, preparing your pond for fibreglass installation is an important process that requires careful attention to detail. By following these steps, you can ensure a smooth and long-lasting installation that provides years of enjoyment and beauty in your backyard.
