Tire inner tubes as liner?

    I have a small pre-fab (6W x 8L x 3D) pond and want to add a small waterfall and stream going into it. I have access to plenty of rear tractor tire inner tubes. None ever had calcium in them, just air. Do you think this would work as a liner for the stream?

    Pond liner is cheap. I would use pond liner. If you are going to have fish you have to use pond liner. Also, pond liner might be more resistant to UV rays than the rubber in an inner tube since it was never designed to see the light of day
