Backyard ponds are often constructed of either a rubber liner or concrete. With So-Cal’s constantly shifting ground, whether it be from earthquakes or some other natural occurrence, stress can be caused on the main body of the pond, waterfall, or stream which can create water loss on your pond.
In our experience, koi ponds or water gardens that are 5 years or older often experience some sort of water loss. Some common causes of water loss are:
- Root penetration – Roots often penetrate the skimmer or filter and occasionally the liner
- Rodent activity – Rodents chewing a hole through the liner or plumbing
- Heavy Debris – Heavy debris on the waterfall or streams can divert water away from the desire path
- Faulty plumbing – cracked, damages or loose plumbing can lead to water loss
