Hi Theresa,

   If it was me, I'd try using J B Weld (sells for about $3.50 in the
   hardware store).  It's an epoxy that hardens stronger than steel 
   and bonds well to plastic.  Of course, you'd have to drain the pond...

   Otherwise, they also make something called 'water weld' that cures
   underwater within 20 minutes.
