HeatPumps4Pools now have an excellent range of covers for koi ponds
We can make winter covers to any size for koi ponds.
Our covers are custom designed for koi ponds and span above the water surface to allow for transfer of gases from the water.
They can be supported over their span by either timber or our support straps (see below)
Pond cover with eyelets, anchor bolts and continuous bungee for fixing
Pond cover with adjustable straps and anchor bolts for fixing
Super Strong Solar-Weave Fabric
Our pond covers are made from strong Solar-Weave fabric which can be tensioned without tearing.
The fabric has a reinforced mesh on the top side and solar bubbles on the underside
The cover allows light through to the pond.
The solar bubbles transfer the sun's heat to the layer of air underneath the pond cover to provide heat and solar gain from the sun.
The edges of the cover are hemmed to give it strength and to prevent tearing.
NEW: Note that our pond covers are now made from GeoBubble material which gives it extra strength and durability
We can offer a choice of two types of fixings to hold the cover in place:-
1. Eyelets and Continuous Elastic Bungee
Eyelets are positioned around the edge of the cover.
The edges of the cover are sewn and reinforced to prevent the eyelets tearing out.
A continuous elastic "bungee" is then passed around the cover through the eyelets.
The elastic is then hooked over wall fixings at various positions around the pond.
This elastic fixing method gives some flexibility to the cover in windy conditions to prevent the cover from tearing.
The continuous elastic strap also allows for varying heights of the fixing bolts around the pond.
The covers come with anchor bolts which can be fixed into brickwork or masonry
When the cover is removed for summer, the centre of the anchror bolt can be screwed in so it is flush
When the covers is fitted, the centre is unscrewed so it protrudes allowing the bungee to be hooked over it.
2. Sewn Straps
Instead of eyelets and an elastic strap fixing. we can provide straps sewn onto the edges of the cover.
The straps are blue, 25mm wide and come with buckle, D-ring and brass flush fix anchor bolt
Straps are sewn to the hemmed edge of the cover. The strap length is adjustable.
At the end of each strap is a D-ring.
The D-ring is then hooked over the anchor bolts and the strap length adjusted.
For larger pond covers, straps make it easier to fit the cover than a continuous bungee and eyelets.
An optional feeding flap can be added to the cover to allow feeding the fish without removing the cover. This has Velcro fastenings.
The feeding flaps are normally 300mm x 300mm but the size can be adjusted if required.
The optional feeding flaps cost approximately £60 each inc VAT
The feeding flap can be located up to 600mm from the edge of the cover
Note: The feeding flaps must be located near to the edge of the cover
Our cover prices include retractable fixing anchors for inserting into brickwork etc.
They require an 18mm hole to be drilled
The cover fixings or bungee then hook over the brickwork anchors to hold the cover in place.
The centre piece of the fixing can be unscrewed so it protrudes, the bungee or d-ring is then hooked over the fixing.
In the summer when the cover is removed, the centre piece can be screwed in so it is flush with the brickwork
We have a 500mm long ground stake for fixing into grass
Please contact us for pricing and details of this option
Optional Support Ratchet Straps
We can supply optional support straps to help suspend the cover above the water and to help to prevent it sagging.
The straps come with a stainless steel ratchet and a plastic protective backing plate to protect the pond cover
They are 6m long (we can make the shorter if you prefer)
They come with the brass fixing anchor and the straps have a stainless steel eyelet
Or the covers can be supported using timber supports
Our pond covers are made to measure, however as a guide, sample sizes and prices are shown above.
Prices above include eyelets and continuous bungee fixings
Please call for pricing for straps, ground stakes or p-fixings etc
Prices inc VAT and FREE delivery
Please contact us for a price for your specific pond size
We can make the cover to any shape of pond.
Our pond covers are made in the UK.
The lead time for the covers varies but is typically only around 7-10 days from order depending on the season
Just returned to Qatar after a two week stay in the UK, the pond cover arrived and has been unpacked and fitted, all spot on and fitted a treat, thanks for your support in this little project of mine….
