    Why didn't you use shower liner? Might be cheaper.

    Might be a good idea. Not sure if it would break down in saltwater though. Plus I like how thick the pond liner is. Its only 30 bucks for the liner so its not bad at all.

    I've had it on the bottom of my sump for about 3 years and I had many overflows and it stood its ground perfectly.

    Thats good to know. Think I still feel more comfortable with the pond liner but I may be able to use that idea in other projects.
