You could try painting it with G8 or G4:

http://www.aquatics-online.co.uk/cat...nd-sealers.asp

Usually you put the concrete down and then overlap the liner over it
and put the paving stone on top. You need to overlap it by a few inches
to hold the liner in place and leave enough exposed concrete to stick
to the paving stone. You can also mix a waterproofer into the concrete
to help but if the level comes up to the concrete it will always tend
to leak a little and that weakens the concrete to paving stone bond.

I don't know it G8/G4 will stick to liner.

Other Materials

G4 cannot be used to seal over bitumen, P.V.C. or Butyl Rubber linings.
It will not bond to the P.V.C. or Butyl Rubber although it will not
attack them.

! and due to past problems i got a mate to do the paving(as he does that
sort of thing)but due to the uneven edges he put a base layer of
concrete round the edge then mortar then the paving to make it level &
more solid oh & he put a waterproofer in the mix,it looks really well &
i was hoping to fill the water up to the paving but now have to keep it
below the concrete which is a good 6in in places.

and the liner went down first.spoke to the guy what did the paving & he reckons it will be leaking

between the liner & the concrete as he made a stiff mix with
waterproofer in so it would not come through the concrete it
self.(apparently)
