I hope that someone can help me with this rather urgent question.
I have a waterfall leading into my pond. At the end of the water fall I have placed a piece of Lead sheeting to act as an overlap so that the water can drop into the pond rather than just trickle over the edge. Is the lead that I have used safe? will it posion the water or my fish?
I don't know if I should remove this or leave it alone as I spent some time making it, and it look good. But I'd rather be safe and finding out.
I know that people use lead weights with plants, but I'm not sure about this.
Re: Help needed! Is Lead safe to use in my pond?
Hi Sam, No its not. Tech, no metal should be used, especially lead or copper! Those lead weights are actually not lead, they are nickle mixed with something else. The lead will be toxic as it will leach into the water. Some kind of plastic will be much better and safer. Hope this answers your question! :)
