Artificial reservoir real decoration for any summer cottage. To create film reservoirs, special films are used, which can be made of polyvinyl chloride or rubber. The service life of an artificial reservoir directly depends on the quality of the selected materials, which is why it is important to approach their choice responsibly. In addition to the film to create an artificial reservoir, sand and gravel with delivery may be required. What film for an artificial reservoir is the most optimal?
Choosing a film
The most common option at the moment is PVC film, which can have a variety of thickness. It glides perfectly and costs much cheaper than analogues. However, in terms of ecology, PVC film is in doubt. If the pond has a depth of more than one and a half meters, the film thickness should not be less than 1.5 mm. The most suitable color color is black or green (swamp). A more durable and environmentally friendly version (but also more expensive) – a rubber film. The minuses of the rubber film also include the difficulty in using.
Film ponds are arranged exclusively in the warm season. If the air temperature is about 20 degrees of heat, the film acquires additional elasticity and without problems takes the necessary form of the reservoir. Before purchasing a film, it is extremely important to correctly calculate its size. The exact dimensions of the future reservoir will help the manager or seller determine the area of the film. It should have sufficient width so that there is no need to glue the panels. Of the materials, geots, sand, pebbles or limestone crushed stone, containers for plants and special products for repairing film coating may also be needed.
