PVC vs Butyl Pond Liners

A pond.

PVC and Butyl pond liners are the two most commonly used liners for ponds.

PVC Pond Liners

PVC pond liners are also called plastic pond liners. They are the most flexible and widely used pond liners because they are easy to install and maintain. They are also cost-effective when compared to concrete pond liners which lack flexibility. If you are looking for a pond liner for a large pond that can assure you longevity, then you should go in for the PVC pond liner. These liners are also considered safe for aquatic plants and animals, which makes them the preferred choice of pond liners.

Butyl Pond Liners

Butyl pond liners offer good competition to the PVC pond liners in terms of usage. These liners are extremely durable since they have a life span of at least 20 years with no damage. These pond liners are also resistant to damage caused by extreme heat from the sun or UV rays from the clarifiers and sterilizers. They are also ozone resistant. The butyl pond liners are easy to install and maintain too. They are available in many shapes and sizes and extend a natural look to your pond.

Butyl liners are at least 45mm thick as compared to PVC liners which are just 30mm thick. Butyl pond liners, unlike PVC pond liners, are available in pre-cut, custom-cut, and rolls option.
