What is the best lining for a pond?
There are lots of things to consider when choosing a liner. What is the pond being used for? What is it storing – water in a garden, leachate from landfill, slurry on a farm? This will help you decide the best material. An HDPE liner is best if you need chemical resistance. PP such as our Superflex is flexible and has high elongation.LLDP is also a flexible material. If you need a high puncture resistance then a re-inforced membrane like our Powerscrim is ideal. Powerscrim and Superflex can also be provided in site specific panels which saves time & cost when installing on site.
Are pond liners necessary?
It depends on what your objective is. Are you trying to contain a liquid? Is your soil permeable? Do you want to prevent leaching? Is there an environmental reason for containment? If the answer to these questions is yes, then you need a liner. You now need to decide on what type of liner you need.
Do you need an underlay for pond liner?
If you are using a pond liner an underlay makes sense. It will help prevent your liner from damage from sharp objects like stones which rise to the surface over time. It is easier to put an underlay when you are installing the pond and avoid any potential issues. It’s an expensive business to replace your pond liner once it’s under water as you will be starting from scratch and will have the added headache of what you do with the contents of your pond!
How deep should a pond liner be?
Pond depth will depend on what area you have for your pond. If you have a large area your pond can be shallower but this will mean greater evaporation of the contents, not great if you are trying to store water for irrigation. If you are restricted by space then a deeper pond might be the best option. Volume of the liquid you are storing will also be an influencing factor when considering the depth of your pond.
What is the best pond liner to use UK?
There are many options for pond lining in the UK.The most popular tend to be HDPE (high density polyethelyne), PP (polypropylene) such as HBB’s Superflex range, LLDP (Linear low density polyethylene) or a GCL (geosynthetic clay liner. Each of these product have different properties and capabilities; Does your pond liner need to have a chemical resistance? Does it need to be flexible? Do you need a high puncture resistance? Once you establish the purpose of your pond it will be easier to narrow down the best material for your pond.
