Choosing the right liner means taking into account what you’ll be using an irrigation pond for. Many types of liners contain harmful chemicals, heavy metals, plasticizers, and other things that can leach into the water. Thus, if water in retention ponds will be used for livestock, aquaculture, or to irrigate crops that require testing from the Food and Drug Administration, you’ll need to choose a pond liner carefully.
This is particularly true for irrigation ponds that may hold water for several seasons at a time. Long term contact with the water plus UV exposure that causes the liner to break down means that more and more toxins will be released into the water over time. What’s the solution? Choose a BTL Liner product. We offer liners that are fish and plant safe, and won’t release harmful toxins into the water. They’re designed to stand up better against UV exposure without breaking down—and that makes them ideal for irrigation ponds in drought-stricken areas like California.
