    Holes in pond need blocking up please

    hi

    Can anyone point me in the right direction please. I have just purchased a temprorary tank/pond to move my fish into so that i can start work on a new pond.

    The tank i purchased has four holes round the side and one on the bottom . I want to block them off with some sort of blanking adapters or something similar. I have thought of siliconing some plastic over the top four but would prefer a removable solution. Just wondering if anyone has seen a blanking gland that would work. Much appreciated. Thanks in advance

    On the outher hand a liner off eBay is cheap enough then you have no issues with contaminants ect it is small price to pay for peace of mind

    the bottom hole you can get a access cap to fit , why not put a new flange connector on the top and use it has a overflow

    That sounds like a good idea. Any certain thickness or type you would recomend? and how would i finish the top edges. Would i just fold over and glue them down? thanks

    Yeh I would just fold the edges over and silicone it then secure with a Rachet strap till the liners bonded to the side this would also allow any bottom drains and returns and air all fresh and clean it's defo the path I would go down
