    Unhappy Ok so everyone can say I told you so... help!

    A while back I was posting about getting lights into my pond, everyone said don't do it. Had a wire through the wall into the pond. Guess what, it's leaking!

    So yep you all told me so.

    Now what? Is it easy to patch fibreglass? Losing about 1"-2"s a day, 6.5x2.7x1.4 pond.

    Help!

    Thanks but I think I need a more permanent fix... it's about 1.1m down and the water pressure just won't allow it to be sealed easy... had a company come in and apply black or wet and sticky they called it?? But doesn't seem to have worked...

    Just done mine Matt, drain down sand round the hole cut a patch from strong PVC pu18 on and let it dry.
    I only left mine for 8 hrs then filled up and no leaks.
