PREFORMED POND SHELLS:


Pre-formed pond shells are appealing because they are convenient for small areas, and rather easy to install. Manufactured from rigid black polyethylene material, they range in size, shape and depth. Rigid ponds are durable and come with a 15-20 year warranty.

On the down side, pre-formed ponds tend to have inadequate shelving and lack good depth. During summer the pond water may overheat, and in winter the pond water may freeze solid. Special care is required during these times of the year (e.g. regular water changes during summer, and fish must be removed from the pond before winter).

INSTALLATION

1. Turn the pond shell upside down, and with a spade, mark around the rim. Adjust the size to allow an extra 12 inches around the perimeter for excavation. Remove the turf.

2. Dig a hole sufficient in depth, allowing an extra 2 inches at the bottom for a layer of sand. Ensure that the base of the hole is level and that the pond shell will sit flat.

3. Fill 2 inches of sand into the hole and compact it. Fit the pond shell and backfill where necessary. Check for levelness.

4. Fill the pond with water. The weight of the water may cause a little expansion, but if properly installed the pond shell will not move.

5. Allow a day for settling before edging with paving stones.
Pavers should protrude about 2 inches over the water.
