Your backyard pond is an exciting statement for the rest of your outdoor space. A leaking pond, then, can be super frustrating, especially when you don’t know the cause behind it. Here are some of the top causes of a leaking pond.
- Dirt and other obstacles. Dirt, rocks, and other obstacles around the liner of your pond can cause water from a waterfall or stream to escape over the liner’s edge. If you’ve noticed that your backyard pond’s water levels are low, it’s possible that the leak could be coming from one of these obstacles.
- Birds taking a bath and your dog lapping up some of the pond water are likely not going to significantly lower the amount of water in your pond. However, wildlife interference can lead to a leaking pond when these critters alter, damage, or otherwise mess with the equipment in your pond. Without equipment, such as the pump, filter, and other parts of the pond, not being in the right place or simply not working properly, your pond could develop a leak.
- Pond liner tears. The pond liner helps contain the water within the pond. If the pond liner is torn, ripped, or damaged, water can escape from the pond, leading to a noticeable water loss.
