|"I think I’d sooner have the other one ," said Mr. Povey, "because it’s on the right side, you see." And he touched his right cheek.
Having taken Mrs. Baines’s chair, he bent his face down to the fire, seeking comfort from its warmth. Sophia poked the fire, whereupon Mr. Povey abruptly withdrew his face. He then felt something light on his shoulders. Constance had taken the antimacassar from the back of the chair , and protected him with it from the draughts. He did not instantly rebel, and therefore was permanently barred from rebellion. He was entrapped by the antimacassar. It formally constituted him an invalid, and Constance and Sophia his nurses. Constance drew the curtain across the street door. No draught could come from the window, for the window was not ‘made to open.’ The age of ventilation had not arrived. Sophia shut the other two doors. And, each near a door, the girls gazed at Mr. Povey behind his back , irresolute, but filled with a delicious sense of responsibility.
The situation was on a different plane now. The seriousness of Mr. Povey’s toothache, which became more and more manifest, had already wiped out the ludicrous memory of the encounter in the showroom. Looking at these two big girls, with their short-sleeved black frocks and black aprons, and their smooth hair , and their composed serious faces, one would have judged them incapable of the least lapse from an archangelic primness; Sophia especially presented a marvellous imitation of saintly innocence. As for the toothache, its action on Mr. Povey was apparently periodic; it gathered to a crisis like a wave, gradually, the torture increasing till the wave broke and left Mr. Povey exhausted, but free for a moment from pain. These crises recurred about once a minute. And now , accustomed to the presence of the young virgins, and having tacitly acknowledged by his acceptance of the antimacassar that his state was abnormal, he gave himself up frankly to affliction. He concealed nothing of his agony, which was fully displayed by sudden contortions of his frame, and frantic oscillations of the rocking-chair. Presently, as he lay back enfeebled in the wash of a spent wave , he murmured with a sick man’s voice:
"I suppose you haven’t got any laudanum?"
The girls started into life. "Laudanum, Mr. Povey?"
"Yes, to hold in my mouth."
He sat up, tense; another wave was forming. The excellent fellow was lost to all self-respect, all decency.
"There’s sure to be some in mother’s cupboard," said Sophia.

The first thing you want to do is make sure the pond liner is fish-safe. This is vital. Fish-safe liners come in a variety of thicknesses which are made out of different material. The most popular for a koi pond or water garden are 45 mil EPDM rubber pond liners. These liners are quite thick – about 18″ and are very pliable and ‘rubbery’. They remind you of a bicycle inner tube , but thicker. They come in a variety of sizes with dimensions that are divisible by 5′. For instance, a 10′ x 10′ pond liner would come pre-boxed and ready to ship. Pond liners up to 400 square feet (for instance a 20′ x 20′ liner) can be shipped via UPS. Larger, 45 mil EPDM liners which are heavier and packaged differently, require shipment via motor freight and come in rolls with the largest size being 50′ x 100′, all in one piece. These rolls are typically transported to the pond site with a front end loader with a fork that fits into the opening of the roll that the liner is rolled on. These liners can weigh 1,500 pounds or more and once at the site , are rolled out near the pond’s edge and strategically placed into the excavated area.
Most Popular Fish-Safe Pond Liner for Large Fish Ponds
There are a couple of options for those who are looking to build a large fish pond or water garden where they would require a liner larger than 50′ x 100′. In this case, the 2 most popular options are to buy 2 or more rolls of the 50′ x 100′ 45 mil EPDM pond liner (or whatever size you need) and splice them together (see below for splice information) or buy a different kind of liner that comes in a much larger size and is made all in one piece! I’ll explain the two options further so you can decide which sounds the most appealing to you.
How to Splice Two 45 mil EPDM Pond Liners Together
Although there are step-by-step procedures that one must follow to splice 2 pieces of 45 mil EPDM liner together, in a ‘nutshell’ what you need to do is lay both pieces on a very flat surface such as plywood or for larger applications, a flat parking lot or driveway. You unroll each liner and carefully overlap one edge of the liner over the edge of the other liner. Ideally, this overlapped area should be about 6″ wide for the length of both liners. A two-sided, sticky , EPDM pond liner tape (called a splice tape) is then rolled out onto the edge of the bottom liner which has already been carefully cleaned and primed. The edge of the top liner, which has also been cleaned and primed is carefully laid onto the bottom liner. The spliced area (ie; overlapped area) is then rolled with a roller to make a tighter seal. In addition, an EPDM pond liner cover strip which is approx. 6″ wide and has one side that is sticky, is then adhered over the seam joint from the 2 spliced liners. Next, a bead of rubber caulking made specifically from the manufacturer who created the 45 mil EPDM liner, is ran along both edges of the cover strip. After 24 hours of drying , the liner can then be moved into place. You can splice as many p.
