What would you guys use? Since the flower room is gonna be unoccupied for a few weeks, I figure it might be a good time to try to get these done. Planning on doing 2 about 5.5'x2.5' or so. Already have a smaller one half built for the veg room, it just needs a liner and legs.

Debating on using pond liner and spray adhesive, or thermoplastic rubberized roof coating like this https://www.menards.com/main/buildi...ng-0-9-gal/1531835/p-1444444997118-c-5822.htm

It will probably cost the same +- a few bucks either way, just wanted to get some opinions.

Mostly want to have the tables to get the pots off the concrete, and so I don't have to fuck with saucers/risers any more, and an easy way to drop a trellis in.

I'd suggest the pond liner with 3M spray adhesive. I didnt follow the link, but the roof coating may offgass and it may do it for a long time/indefinitely.
Little to no chance of that with the pond liner plus pond liner can be removed/reapplied as needed. Just my .02

That's what I'm leaning towards. Was looking at the roof coat because I thought it would be pretty easy to lay down and not have ripples/wont tear or whatever. Didn't think about potential off-gassing, makes since since it's not really intended for indoor use, so they wouldn't care if it did.

I was thinking about flex seal or the rust-oleum version, but I dont know if I want to take a chance with some as seen on tv type shit lmao. I'll probably just use the pond liner.
