Hemicide,

I just figure that they will tear the liner at certain areas and that a clay substrate beneath the most likely weak spots will help insure that tears won't drain the pond. They say that you can make clay bottomed ponds that will hold water.

Also, I'm going to call the guys at www.aquaculturetanks.com about the peanut shaped ponds that they sell. If they're flexible on price I may look into dropping one of those in the ground to take the popped liner worries out of the picture. A liner the size I need would be a few hundred bucks. The pre-fab peanut shaped ponds are quite a bit more as priced on that site. I'd feel better about it if I could get one for roughly the same price per gallon that I paid for my stock tank ($0.60).

: Sorry Kevin, I misread your original post, I thought you were covering the liner with clay and gravel to protect the liner from thier claws. In which case they would naturaly dig down into the gravel some, and disturb the clay, but the liner would be protected. I don't believe anything under the liner will protect the liner from the turtles, just roots and sharp rocks.
: The only place they tore my liner was in the back of the folds for corners. Now, is that clear as mud. lol
