The first step in fixing a leaky pond is finding where the water is escaping. This is typically pretty easy to do, as the majority of leaks happen in a stream or waterfall. If your pond doesn’t have a stream or waterfall, don’t worry – leaks can still occur in other places, like the plumbing. To find the leak, start by filling up your pond to its normal level and then observing it for 24 hours. If the water level drops at all, you have a leak. Mark where the water levels drop using some type of marker so you can easily see it. Once you have marked the spot, you can begin investigating what might be causing the leak.

Leaking ponds can be frustrating, but with the right tools and knowledge, they are easy to fix. Follow our tips above to help you find and eradicate your leak so you can get back to the business of enjoying your pond!
