Calculating Liner Size

I want to have a circular pond 35 feet in circumfrence (I already measured with string, and its a good size). What size liner do I need, I want the pond to have ledges 12, 18, and 24 in, and what would the volume be? Pick one from: http://www.lowes.com/lkn?action=prod...catalogId=POND and when it asks for a zip code type 02324.

OK so about 12 feet diameter. Max of 24" depth.

You will need the length of the thing (12) plus the depth times two (2)=14x14 Liner

Plus, you want a litte overhang, at least 1 foot on each side (This is 16x16)

So the next size up (or that size) 16x16 is what you need. 15x15 would work too but you wont have much room for error.

I agree with the above statement, except the depth is 2', so it would come out to be 12+2*2 = 16 . So you would want 18x18 to have an extra fot all around.
