PVC (Poly Vinyl Chloride) is one of the most commonly specified lining materials in the large (farm type) pond industry today. Manufactured by a calendaring, or extrusion process, our Custom-Sized Large Pond PVC Liner is a highly flexible, non-reinforced, cost-effective, waterproofing geomembrane with many uses and advantages for any customer. The Custom-Sized Large Pond PVC Liner has extremely high puncture strength, excellent abrasion resistance, and is also resistant to a number of industrial chemicals. Also, because of its high flexibility, PVC liners readily conform to the ponds sub-grade contours and offer excellent resistance to ground slippage without having to be textured. The use of a Custom-Sized Large Pond PVC Liner can also prevent contaminants from entering groundwater sources or streams, and in addition, conserves potable water resources by preventing seepage loss.
Custom factory fabrication eliminates much, if not all field seaming, as our Custom Large Pond Liner can be fabricated into panels up to 40,000 square feet in the climate-controlled manufacturing plant and then shipped directly to your site for easy installation.Using pre-fabricated panels makes it possible for your crew to install potentially acres of pond liner per day and reduce your overall construction time. For an additional cost, we can always request custom-fabricated panels to fit the site-specific dimensions and requirements of any customer.
Slopes of the pond should be limited to 3:1, and cover soils should be walked in from the bottom of the pond to the top, always keeping a minimum of 12\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" of clean soil between your equipment and the membrane.
The 1.02mm thickness provides superior durability while maintaining the ability to stretch for ease of installation. Firestone pond liner has an exceptional resistance to solar UV, ozone, and oxidation, providing years of trouble-free use.
Pond liners & underlays are essential if you want to protect your pond liner, and keep it lasting for longer. The underlay is designed to be puncture resistant and protect the pond liner from sharp stones, falling objects or sharp claws.
Shirley Aquatics have a range of underlay from brands such as Gordon Lowe. You can buy our pond liners & underlays online or in our shop. You will be sure to find exactly what you need to keep your garden pond in top condition!
For a large pond liner we recommend a heavy-duty rubber liner. Our heavy duty liners are extremely durable, being up to 1mm thick and with a long life warranty. For koi ponds, large ponds or even a lake liner Firestone Pondgard is perfect. Where flexibility is required in detail ponds, the SealEco EPDM GreenSeal rubber liner is perfect.
For a small pond liner, a flexible fish pond liner is best as they easily mould into the shape reducing fold visibility. Butyl pond liners are perfect for this and are made partly from natural raw materials. A cheaper option is the EcoSeal GreenSeal EPDM pond liner and offers similar flexibility properties Butyl liner and is commonly used by Landscapers.
If you are looking to buy a cheaper budget pond liner we offer an excellent budget PVC pond liner option. The Oase Alfafol PVC high quality pond liner has excellent properties including flexibility, UV resistant, 0.5mm thick and comes with a 15-year guarantee. A word of caution, some cheap pond liner on well-known marketplace websites may not offer the life they suggest. Any early saving maybe lost by having to repair, patch or even replace the PVC liner.
To protect your liner from sharp stones and root we suggest placing pond underlay (liner protection matting) under your liner during construction. The protection underlay mat should also be placed on top if you are adding a substrate such as soil or gravel into your pond. This is normal in wildlife or native ponds.
Water feature and pond leaks can be extremely frustrating and difficult to repair. The Aquascape EPDM Liner Patch makes it easy to repair small holes, tears and cuts in your EPDM pond liner. This 6-inch self-adhesive patch is simple and easy to use.
One of the primary advantages of EPDM liners is that individual sheets can be adhered together with liner tape, allowing users to worry less about making precise cuts. This also means that the pond can eventually be expanded without starting with a whole new liner.
On the downside, EPDM liners can be prone to punctures, so they must be paired with an underlay. The material is also quite heavy, making it slightly harder to work with than other flexible liner materials.
Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is one of the least expensive materials used to craft pond liners, and it has both advantages and disadvantages. It offers better puncture resistance than EPDM and is slightly more lightweight, making it easier to work with. Like EPDM, multiple sheets can be attached using liner tape.
All materials used for pond liners degrade slightly over time when exposed to direct UV rays, but some withstand sun exposure better than others. EPDM, HDPE, and fiberglass liners are the best choice when it comes to UV resistance as they can withstand sunny conditions without incurring significant damage. PVC liners, unfortunately, tend to crack over time under direct sunlight. Some PVC liners are treated for improved ability to withstand UV exposure, making them a better choice for ponds placed in sunny locations.
Adding a pond to a property creates an attractive landscaping feature, so aesthetics are an important consideration when choosing a pond liner. Preformed liners can be installed either partially or fully above-ground, allowing users to make raised ponds surrounded by rocks, stones, and/or ornamental greenery.
Years of experience covering home improvement as well as extensive product research went into creating this guide. We explored more than 25 pond liner options and weighed a number of practical considerations before making our recommendations.
The thickness of a pond liner is typically measured in mils, with 1 mil equivalent to 0.001 inches. The ideal pond-liner thickness is dependent on the type of material used, though most will be between 18 and 20 mils thick.
