    Perfectly acceptable and many people do use these.I would incorporate some horizontal and vertical rebar if going down that route.The amount needed would depend on size/depth of pond.ATB.

    My pond is hollow block with solid concrete blocks upright on the face side, I built a stone wall face and back filled with concrete.
    I carried the bar up out of the hollow blocks in front of the upright blocks.
    I have further extended the pond last year, I shuttered this and poured a concrete wall, that again had reinforcing.
    Think the new bit is bomb proof :-)
