When Building A Pond, Do Not Expose The Pond Liner To Direct Sunlight
When Building a Pond (or After it Has Been Built), do Not Expose the Pond Liner to Direct Sunlight.
Sunlight, specifically its invisible ultraviolet rays, are harmful to your pond’s liner (also called “foil” by some pond owners and constructors), so part of ensuring that you have a good pond edge is by concealing the liner. As a precaution against sunlight (or UV) damage, keep the water level high at all times, especially during the summer. Also, the liner needs to be protected from sharp objects (for example, stones) below it and from being punctured by any objects within the water body.
