As the months draw closer to fire season, fire protection ponds become more and more valuable. However, when the time comes that the pond needs to be utilize, if an improper or lower quality liner is used the water levels could be low, or even more dangerously, empty. 

Our team of containment experts has compiled a handful of points that should be considered as you make your liner choice.

Select for Durability

It is essential to select a liner that is puncture and rip resistant. A good RPE liner should also boast an impressive amount of UV resistance. UV light is one of the biggest long-term concerns when it comes to the longevity of pond liners. You should also select a liner that has an industry-leading level of fire resistance. Naturally, fire resistance is one of the biggest considerations when it comes to picking a liner for a fire protection pond. Due to the unique intentions behind fire protection ponds, the environments for their installation can vary and will eventually put them near the scene of a wildfire or community fire.
