    Don't think many people buy firestone so not sure of the answer.

    Any reason why firestone and not EPDM?

    Ah maybe you're right and it is the same just a different manufacturing process, as I think Firestone is American whereas Seal Eco / Greenseal EPDM is I assume British).

    Gordon Low are the British Manufacturers of quality EPDM but don't sell direct to public. If its a box welded EPDM liner you want then twice I have found Atlantica Gardens the cheapest for liner, underlay and delivery combined on both occasions I've bought. You'd have to message him through website or ring him for a quote.

    If not after boxweld then prices seem to vary over time and you'd just need to shop around.

    They agreed to beat my quote and did so by around a fiver, but they wouldn't budge on delivery price so it still worked out cheaper from Atlantica Gardens for me.

    Koi Water Barn also agreed to match Atlantica Gardens price on my 2nd liner but took ages to reply to emails so I still went with the latter.

    I'm considering sticking a liner inside a patio slab delivery crate, bit of ply on the inside and some decking on the outside, job done.

    Never ever known best/cheapest go hand in hand? Perhaps consider which you would prefer

    I thought Butyl was the main one?

    All i know is. Butyl is rubber and EDPM is man made

    You have misinterpreted what I asked Best / Cheapest Place For Firestone I was asking whatís the cheapest / best place for firestone (the second best liner) so I wasnít after cheap crap Best / Cheapest Place For Firestone. Just the place you can buy it the cheapest everyone likes things cheaper. In the end I went for green seal as itís meant to be more flexible.

    Butyl is also man made contains mostly rubber with other polymers some of the same polymers are also in EPDM. Thatís what I read the other day anyway ha
