    Oh dear. It’s a bad time of year to be fibreglassing, but if you can cover it well to protect from the rain and temperatures hold up then it might be doable.
    Ken Alexander is on here, maybe worth getting in touch with him and see what he says?

    Surely just chuck another liner in or can you not just patch it for now?

    Oh dear
    I have to say I never found patching a great option in a pond when I had liners.
    Would you not be better off just throwing in a cheaper liner in on top of the old one, sealing in your BD and skimmer and have the whole thing glassed in the summer?

    The patch worked and was doing it's job feline..the issue I have is ground water seeping through the walls under the liner and liftingbit..was first filled in summer so no water to leak under the liner and the full pond pressure has kept any out since
