Installing the liner for the aquaponics raft tank! The pond liner is super heavy and not easy to work with, learning to fold the corners was pretty difficult.  When installing your liner be patient and take your time! 

The liner should be pulled tight over the frame, but loose enough to account for future weight of the water.   

I used a food safe pond liner, but next time I will use a white vinyl liner, it is quickly becoming the industry standard.  Lighter weight and food safe the liner is the better choice, although more expensive.

Wrapping the liner around the frame I attached it with roofing nails with the plastic ring to help disperse the tension on the nails, this will help keep the liner from ripping.
