Welcome aboard
I personally never heard of a indoor pond build using PVC but other members will chime in.

PVC tubing for a frame, or a PVC liner? The liners are super strong. The tubing is not meant for that type of support in anyway and I would not trust it at all w that much water.

Used a wooden frame before with a pvc liner however the pvc does get brittle over time. Much better to use the more expensive butyl liner.
