Enhanced soil pond liners, such as bentonite products, are a more affordable solution for sealing home fish ponds. Sealing ponds with bentonite clay creates a natural seal that is almost impenetrable. 

Bentonite clay swells when it becomes wet. Expanded bentonite forms an impermeable gel seal which makes an excellent pond sealant.
Bentonite is environmentally safe and does not affect the water. When properly applied, it will not harm fish.

For these qualities, bentonite also makes an excellent liner for new pond construction.

Bentonite is easily applied. In the case of small ponds, it can be applied with simple hand tools and for larger ponds, with ordinary farm equipment.
