Liners are a very simple and cost effective way of constructing a pond which can be easily adapted for many different shapes and sizes. We supply a wide range of liners that are used to create small decorative ponds, shaped water features, golf course obstacles, large natural lakes in business parks and municipal parklands, and open reservoirs. The choice of material depends on the application, size and shape of the pond, site conditions and budget. Stephens Plastics’ teams of experienced site operators can install our products throughout the UK.

A Floating cover is an easy and effective solution for reducing evaporation, and preventing algae growth. It is manufactured from 0.5mm Aquatex, which incorporates tiny holes that allows rainwater to percolate through to prevent ponding on the surface. The covers can be fitted to open reservoirs, or steel/concrete tanks either as a new installation or on existing sites. The covers are fitted with a water filled perimeter hose to prevent wind uplift plus a guide system to allow the cover to rise and fall with the water level.
