What to consider when buying pond liners for a large pond build
Monday, March 24, 2014
Pond liners are arguably the most important element that you need to consider when undertaking a home pond project. Whilst it may seem any old piece of plastic will do, the truth is that poor quality pond liners, or even good quality liners that are incorrectly installed, have the potential to lead to numerous problems after your project has reached completion, which results in you incurring additional costs.
Keep reading to find out things you need to know about pond liners, from selecting the correct material to choosing the best company to assist with installation.
Buying a pond liner
Before you get started on your pond project, you need to decide whether or not you have the skill and necessary equipment to successfully complete the task. In the vast majority of cases garden pond builds the answer to this question would be yes. However, for large pond builds, our best solution, then, is to hire a team of experts to handle the project for you as it may require welding or hot-bonding sheets of pond liner together to cover the length and width of your pond. We have broken this process down into a few key questions which will lead you to the best company for the job:
The most important thing to look for when choosing your pond liner company is their track record. Do they have the necessary expertise to get the job done to your liking?
Do they offer a range of related services, or merely supply materials?
Can they handle a job of the scale you need? Many companies specialise in one type of lining, such as water tanks liners and therefore cannot give you the best product and advice for lining ponds.
Are they limited to one industry? Projects change regularly and you need to select a company with the capacity to handle tasks of any size
There is one firm which answers all of these questions correctly and that is Russetts Development Ltd. We specialise in the fabrication, supply and installation of Butyl and EPDM flexible rubber linings, which are perfect for pond builds. The material is flexible, strong and provides UV resistant, durable waterproofing, which means leaks are less likely to ever be a problem. With over 20 years’ experience across a variety of industries, our team has the ‘savvy’ and expertise to get the job done to a standard that will amaze you.
