Use Greenseal Pond Liners To Create The Pond Of Your Dreams


The world as we know seems to be constantly transforming into a place where we can enjoy the natural benefits and joys of our planet less and less. Forests and plains are constantly being eradicated in order to accommodate more residential areas, supermarkets, office buildings and so on. Consequently, a large number of people from the United Kingdom and other countries from all around the world are being drawn to the idea of having their own personal oasis right in their own back yard. While traditionally people were only directed to creating gardens, with the advances made in the field of flexible materials, it is now quite easy and cost effective to build your own pond in your back yard.


The best choice seems to be Flexible Lining Products Limited own brand Greenseal Pond Liners, made out of  EPDM Rubber. Greenseal Rubber is a fantastic material which is not only flexible but is also totally UV resistant. This type of liner is now readily available to customers from the United Kingdom, and other countries at prices that make these Greenseal Pond Liners more than affordable to basically anyone interested in having their own personal pond. Because Greenseal EPDM is a very flexible and malleable material, Greenseal Rubber Pond Liners do not restrict owners from deciding upon the dimensions of their future ponds. When compared to any of the other alternatives that may be used for creating a pond, the benefits of installing Flexible Lining Products Greenseal Pond Liners become all the more visible.


The first factor, which is what many people consider to be the most important, is repair options. Regular, fixed, cement liners are extremely costly to repair, as any defects that might appear require owners to drain the entire pond, hire professionals to repair the damage, wait for the repairs to dry, and then refill the pond. When adding these costs to the initial costs, you can easily see that this solution is not near as effective as FLP’s Greenseal Pond Liners made out of Greenseal EPDM which is extremely resistant. And if any punctures do appear in the Greenseal Rubber material, they can easily be repaired by absolutely anyone cheap and fast, having the pond back like it used to be in just a couple of hours. As people have their own set requirements and expectations, the company that provides United Kingdom customers with Greenseal Pond Liners namely Flexible Lining Products Ltd is offering a wide selection of products, featuring thicknesses including 0.75mm, 0.85mm and 1.00mm and sizes.


In order to assure their clients will not have any problems with their registered trade mark Greenseal Pond Liners based on Greenseal rubber materials, manufacturers offer clients a lifetime warrantee for any manufacturing defects. When it comes to how thin or thick the Greenseal Rubber must be, you should know that it all depends on the actual size of your future pond versus the application requirement. Greenseal Rubber pond liners are the brand name of Flexible Lining Products first introduced by them into the United Kingdom in early 2003

FLP’s Greenseal Lake Liners – the right choice

March 2nd, 2010

Wondering If Greenseal Lake Liners Are The Right Choice For You?

People in the UK have always been interested in having their own private lake on their property, and until know the only solutions were concrete and other fixed liners which are not only costly but also expensive to maintain. With Flexible Lining Products Greenseal Lake Liners, however, property owners are only required to make an initial investment. The installation process for Greenseal Lake Liners is pretty straight forwards and does not require persons performing the installation to have received previous training. Greenseal Rubber is a fantastic material that ensures a very large life span with practically no chances for it ever having to be replaced.

The company presenting Greenseal Rubber Lake Liners to UK based customers offer them the option of purchasing entire Greenseal in roll forms or Greenseal Lake Liners in prefabricated sheets that are already to specifications. This material does not incorporate any harmful chemicals or other hazardous substances, so that any wild life present will be able to flourish. Also, the costs for the manufacturing of FLP’s Greenseal Lake Liners are significantly lower than those for other materials which also incorporate natural rubber.

Greenseal Rubber products are 100% synthetic, in order to present its customers with a further reassurance as to the characteristics of the Greenseal Lake Liners, all FLP’s Greenseal products come with a life time guarantee against any latent manufacturing defects. Unlike most other materials used for lining lakes and ponds, Greenseal Rubber Lake Liners are extremely easy to repair, and any tears or leaks can be repaired within one hour. The process of preparing the surfaces which accommodate the greenseal lake liners is not different from the processes required for other techniques.

First, you need to mark the dimensions of the future lake or large pond. Shape and size are not an issue as FLP’s Greenseal EPDM is a very versatile material and can be cut to very precise specifications. The next step is to excavate the surface according to the specified depth ensuring that the necessary precautions for under membrane drainage / gas venting if required. The final but probably most important step is to ensure that not only the anchor trench detailing is correct but steps are made to ensure the liner is covered for both cosmetic and practical reasons before actually filling the surface with water..

In the UK, Flexible Lining Products Limited created their own brand name and now registered trade mark Greenseal Rubber Pond & Lake Liners offering its customers with full support in terms of guidance, and installation services (part of full). This type of product is especially designed and fabricated to be used for lining lakes and ponds, and for any other uses customers are advised to make inquiries.

Anyone considering pond or lake liners should use materials that are suitable for their purposes, and avoid products which could fail prematurely i.e. not being UV stable, thus making Greenseal Rubber far superior to other materials, including PVC which is notorious for its predisposition to cracking on the surfaces which are not covered by water, or protected from the sun.
