Five reasons to require a pond cover






1) Thermal retention– particularly useful for keeping water warm and active in the winter.

2) Odor control– by raising surface tension and minimizing the escape route, offensive odors are eliminated.

3) Evaporation protection– if you don’t want the contents in your pond, tank, or lagoon to become gaseous.

4) Dust/particulate protection– if you want to keep these contaminants out.

5) Floating islands– floating treatment systems are designed to consume organic matter, nitrogen, contaminants, and wastewater. They are resilient and environmentally sound.

Ask yourself, what problem am I trying to solve? And in what environment? The answer will give you a heads up as to what type of pond cover would best suit your situation.
