    Hi

    we would like to know some idea about the cost by sq meter to seal a pond,
    by clay preferably if not by other way,
    if you have some examples,
    please share it with us about the prices and different techniques to realise it,
    thanks

    Hi Tsatsahouse. I know this doesn't necessarily answer your question regarding cost. But (this is just one of the sources) there is a good (free) video, by Geoff Lawton, titled 'Fixing a Leaky Pond with Ducks'. Here is a link for the free films (in case you don't already have it): https://geofflawton.com

    here are some good links to providers of bentonite clay pond sealers.

    Hmm, can apparently only put in one per posts.

    This one sells it for around 9.00 per 50 lb. bag.

    Bryan,
    If you just paste the link in your text without using the little link tool, you can put in multiple links with no issues.

    Have you used bentonite in a pond?
