Gordon Low have manufactured tailor-made (box-welded, bespoke, made-to-measure) pond liners in the UK for over 50 years.We supply the Aquatic Trade with the highest quality, tailor made pond and tank liners fabricated in our own dedicated factory here in the UK.Using either Butyl Rubber or SealEco EPDM Rubber (greenseal) from our Swedish supplier, we supply the UK Commercial and Domestic market through our large customer base of professional landscapers, trained installers and Aquatic Wholesalers.A box-welded liner is simply a prefabricated pond liner made to your exact dimensions to fit like a glove into your pond construction. All seams are full overlap factory welds (hot bond vulcanised) for maximum strength, so there are no folds or site seaming required during installation.
In certain situations water or gas can become trapped under the liner, for example; if the pond is built on clay, the soil contains organic matter that could generate methane gas, or if there is a high / fluctuating water table. Over a period of time, any of these conditions may cause damage to the pond liner, but they can be prevented by installing a drainage system of porous pipes laid in a sand bed or other permeable layer.
In general, you will need 1,500 gallons per hour (gph) for every 1-foot of waterfall discharge for an average flow. The discharge is considered where the water enters back into the pond. For example: Let’s say the width of our waterfall is 2′. This would mean we need a pump of approximately 3,000 gph.
Perforated single wall land drainage. Used as a collector drain for the removal of excess surface water on gardens and fields to a suitable collection point. The minimum depth of cover on any piped drain should be at least 450mm to protect the pipe from damage due to the surface traffic or maintenance operations such as deep spiking.
Non-biting midge flies or chironomids commonly occur in both inland and coastal areas with natural and man-made bodies of water. These midges are commonly known as “blind mosquitoes” because they are mosquito-like in appearance but do not bite. Midges are also called “fuzzy bills” because of the male’s bushy antennae (Figure 1). These aquatic insects are tolerant of a wide range of environmental conditions. Chironomid midges can be found in swift moving streams, deep slow moving rivers, stagnant ditches, and in lakes and ponds that are rich in decomposing organic matter. The presence of certain chironomid midge species is often an indicator of water quality issues.
he grave. In fact, many graves today are dug far deeper than six feet, as coffins are often stacked sometimes three deep in a single plot to save space, or reuse a plot after a suitable period of time.
