5 Benefits of Installing a Fibreglass Pond

You may have already heard about the amazing benefits of using fibreglass and GRP in roofing and wet room flooring. It’s safe to say that we speak of the virtues of fibreglass more than anyone else! However, did you know that you can also install ponds in fibreglass, built for any garden and purpose? Fibreglass ponds are becoming more and more popular – but why? What are some of the major benefits of having a pond lined with GRP? Let’s take a closer look.

Your Pond, Your Way

Fibreglass pondFibreglass is famously flexible and versatile. This means you’ll be able to customise the look and feel of your pond with a great deal of control. You don’t have to opt for dull, uninspiring colours. Go for bright, attractive shades. If you have a themed garden, choose a shape and aesthetic that complements it perfectly. One of our favourite benefits of using fibreglass lies in the fact that it can be so freely produced and adapted. That makes it ideal for bespoke garden design.

Years and Years Without Maintenance

Traditional pond liners need care and attention, as all manner of problems could cause them to break down or lose their shape over time. Fibreglass, of course, is famously long-lasting. In fact, we supply and install fibreglass with a 20-year guarantee. That means we’re confident you won’t have to maintain or make changes to your fibreglass pond within a two-decade period. GRP is tough stuff, and if you want access to a pond which will keep its look and shape for as long as possible, it’s a resource you’re going to want to make use of.

Little to No Damage

Anyone who has already installed or used traditional pond lining in the past will know that it can be easily damaged. Weather, animals and even poor installation can result in cracks, scuffs and even a complete breakdown of your lining. That’s why more and more people are looking at GRP for a more robust, protective installation. As stated, fibreglass ponds are already long-lasting, but they are impervious to damage, too. This means you’ll be able to have your pond installed and rest easy knowing it will withstand the vast majority of what Mother Nature has to throw at it. It’s part of our guarantee!

Safe and Secure

Fibreglass Pond with FountainTraditional pond lining can be a nightmare to deal with when it comes to bubbling and lifting. If it is improperly installed, a pond can lift up and let water flow underneath. Plastic can bubble and crack, too. With Merlin, and with our leading GRP fibreglass, you can rest assured that your pond lining will be safely and securely installed, immovable and impervious to any kind of loosening or wear and tear which might make it shift or move around. Anyone looking for a great pond lining wants a system which will stay rooted. Fibreglass has your back.

It’s Cost-Effective

Finally, let’s think about pricing. Some people may choose simple plastic pond liners as they are cheap on the surface, and in terms of upfront cost. However, fibreglass ponds more than pay for themselves within a short period of time. As mentioned, fibreglass needs little to no attention over the years. That means you’re never going to need to shell out for fixes or replacements. With basic pond lining, you are running the risk of having to pay for a new fitting every so often.
