Stored water losses from evaporation can total as much as 2 to 2.5 metres depth per year, in many of Australia’s irrigation areas.
Independent testing has shown that evaporation can be reduced by 95% for every m2 covered by Evap Cap.
Other features of Evap Cap:
Best installed when pond/dam is full, or nearly full
Reduces algae significantly
Automatically “harvests” rainfall
Reduces build-up of salinity
Reduces wave-action caused bank erosion
Australian made for Australian (high UV) conditions
Warranty 5 years (or up to 10 years for the thicker version).
NON-BUBBLE FLOATING COVERS
HDPE, LDPE, and PP (reinforced, or unreinforced) are regularly used for floating covers – for evaporation control and/ or for containment purposes.
Typically these types will need supplementary buoyancy to be added, and some means (eg. pumps) to decant rainwater from the cover.
Non-bubble floating covers are usually installed with the pond empty, but DDT Liners have plenty of experience in building/installing covers on already full ponds.
