When it comes to the various components of an outdoor pond, the lining or liner is one of the most important. A properly and securely fitted pond liner is necessary to retain water within the pond in preparation for fish and plantation.
Pond liners are important to ensure that a suitable habitat is maintained for fish. They prevent the water from leaking out of the pond and inhibit the growth of unwanted plants, helping towards maintaining clean water and a healthy pond.
To complement the pond liner, it is also recommended to include liner underlay in the design of your pond, particularly when choosing a flexible liner. This helps to provide an added layer of protection and prevents the liner from being punctured by roots or other objects below the soil.
Types of Pond Liners
There are two main types of pond liners; EPDM rubber liners and PVC pond liners.
Rubber pond liners are durable, effective and extremely puncture resistant. These are a great choice for all types of pond and are suitable for larger scale features such as lakes where they will need to perform their purpose for long periods of time. Rubber pond liners offered by Aquatix-2u are biologically safe and recommended for water features that are intended to be inhabited by fish or other animals. We offer a 20 year to lifetime guarantee on all rubber pond liners.
PVC pond liners are a great choice for small to medium scale ponds and water features that won't be inhabited by fish. Their construction means that they offer a high level of flexibility which makes them a great choice for unusual shaped water features. Our PVC pond liners are of the highest quality and are backed by a lifetime guarantee for ponds up to 60 square metres.
We also stock liner repair tape which is an essential item for making emergency repairs.
Guide to Choosing the Right Pond Liner
The first decision to make when choosing the right pond liner for your needs is to determine the type of material that you require.
Rubber liners are suitable for almost any application and are incredibly durable. They are also recommended for ponds where fish will be kept. PVC liners are also highly durable and are suggested for water features where flexibility will be an important attribute of the product.
Once you have chosen your preferred type of liner, the next step is to determine how much material is required. We would suggest adding additional material to the dimensions of your pond to overlap at the edges and ensure a successful installation. We have a handy pond liner calculator to assist with this.
Of course if you have any queries about the type of liner most suitable for your requirements, or quantity need, our professional team will be happy to offer expert advice and recommendations.
