There are many advantages to choosing NSF certified pond liners, especially in applications that require potable or need to be fish and plant safe. Not all liners hold this certification, which guarantees that the product meets all of the regulatory requirements of the U.S. and Canada and is safe for use in drinking water. However, BTL offers several pond liners that are NSF certified for use in drinking water and as fish and plant safe.
Qualifications for NSF Certified Pond Liners
In order for pond liners and other water system components to qualify for the NSF certification, the products must undergo the certification process, which includes:
- Providing product formulation, toxicology and use information
- A review by the toxicology department of the NSF
- Plant audit and sample collection
- Laboratory testing
- Final toxicology evaluation
After completing the process, compliant products are granted the NSF certification. In the case of BTL Liners, providing NSF certified pond liners for our customers allows us to assure that our products are safe for use in drinking water.
Fish and Plant Safe Pond Liners
Choosing fish and plant safe pond liners is essential for the life of these natural elements within your pond, as well as the environment. Unlike certain liner materials, like PVC for example, the RPE and RPP liners from BTL don’t release any plasticizers into the water and there are no harmful byproducts.
Plant and fish safe pond liners have many applications, including:
- Residential and Commercial Koi Ponds
- Natural Swimming Pools
- Irrigation Ponds
- Water Gardens and Decorative Ponds
From commercial to residential applications, it’s important to choose fish and plant safe pond liners. Since fish and plant safe pond liners don’t release harmful byproducts, it contributes to their position as an environmentally friendly product.
