Can anyone recommend a Good Geomemrane

Can anyone recommend a Good Geomemrane

I'm looking for a leak proof geomembrane that has some good tensile grab test values and is relatively light weight, as it will be installed by hand (hopefully). The function is pretty much a pond liner, except not as heavy. I need the liner to be able to span anomolies, meaning it will not have soil support below it at all locations.  I need a tensile grab strength in the 300 lb range to span these anomolies with my loading.

Has anyone worked with a product, or product type they liked and would recommend?

Most any of the reinforced Hypalon membranes would suffice, whether roof or geomembrane specific.

We installed a liner in a dump one time. It was handwork like you wouldn't believe. We had men on their hands and knees with trowels in hand picking rocks  and smoothing. That job was Awsome and we made a buttload of money. yeah! I wish

edstimator...that makes me laugh. For anyone else who finds this post, we did find a product called "durascrim 36" that worked really well. Light weight and strong as all get out.
