Trying to waterproof a concrete pool


Hi.
I'm building a little fish lake in my backyard. I already dag a hole and I want it to be a concrete lake.
However, I heard that concrete lets water out and so I'll be losing water.
What do I do to prevent it? I heard there was some kind of layer you put on the concrete to make it waterproof.

Any ideas?

A Plastic membrane might be a better, cheaper choice than concrete...

Pond Armor is what you need. It is used for water features and fish ponds. You can trowel it on, roll it or spray it. It is expensive, but it will create a waterproof rubber membrane that you need.

Take a look.

There many different ways you can do it but the easiest and most inexpensive and will never leak is a pond liner,just google fish pond liners and you will find what you need.
