What Kinds of Ponds Liners for Water Harvesting

HDPE Liners

High-density pond liners with unique tensile strength and resistance to wear. They are more resistant to tough weather conditions and ideal for long-term use.

PVC Liners

Cheaper types of pond liners with less durable features than HDPE or LLDPE. Still good to use in concrete-reinforced ponds and strong or water-retentive soil patterns. The reason is due to their light surfaces that may be subject to wear easily.

Choosing the Right Pond Liner for Water Harvesting

Navigating the options for reliable pond liners material is a very tedious task and one can mess if not guided well. So, here’s what we often consider when selecting a good pond liner.

Pond Size

The primary thing to consider determining what liner will match your intended pond.

Soil type around your Pond

different soil structures have different water retention capabilities. It relates to the compactness of a particular rock or surface. Sand soils have poor water holding and require a thicker dam liner to lower the chances of water loss when it gets torn.

Pond liner type

Pond liners’ efficiency and durability vary according to the material they are made of. HDPE liners are the best and can last for a long time as they are made of UV-treated Polythene materials.

Ease of Installation and Repair

It is wise to choose pond liners that can be installed easily to lower the cost and time taken. Also, the ability and ease to repair a pond liner should be considered as well.

Price of Pond liners

How much the pond liner is also determines whether it is worth your investment. Don’t spend much on a material without making proper estimates on the returns it can give you.

Installing Pond Liners for Water Harvesting

Installation of your pond liners starts before you worry about navigating your fish farming journey. Obviously, you will have your ponds excavated and ready to install a pond liner on it.

A recommended practice is to make a slab or concrete foundation on your pond, to reinforce the water retention. Cementing also increases the stability of your fishpond, during floods or rainy seasons. Soil erosion and dirty water entry can also be prevented by raising your concrete foundation using bricks.

Steps to Secure and Anchor your Liner onto the ground

  • Unpack pond liners from the rolls and spread it on the surface.
  • Pull the liner materials and fit it over the excavation.
  • Tuck in the pond liner and ensure it covers every part of the ground without wrinkles.
  • For large ponds create seams to prevent water leaks by conducting welding.
  • Once all surfaces of the pond are secured,

How do I Estimate the Size of the Pond liner I need?

Find out what size of pond liners to use by measuring and calculating the surface of the pond.

The liner is required to cover all parts of the pond excavation including the bottom, walls, and edges.

However, ponds take various shapes as per the land size and terrain. So, the surface of the pond will be entirely covered with a liner. For our case, the formula for calculating the size of the liner needed for common pond shapes exists. Common shapes include rectangular, circular, and rectangular with slanting edges.

Formulas are;

Square/ rectangular pond liner calculator for straight edges

To find the Length (length of the pond + 2 x depth + extension of 2 m).

To find the width of the liner (width of the pond + 2 x depth +Extension of 2 meters)

Square/ Rectangular Pond liner calculator for slanted edges

Total length in meters: (surface length + 2 x slanting depth + extension of 2 meters).

Total width in meters: (Surface width + 2slanting depth +extension of 2meters)

 Circular pond liner calculator

Diameter of the base + 2 x depth of the pond + extension of 1 meter.

The extension is meant to hold the liner onto the surface of the pond to ensure it remains intact.
