Fiberglass Swimming Pools and Garden Ponds
You design your pond, according to your requirements, and observe reasonable water exchange (inlet, outlet, planting, filter and spawning zones, etc.).
On-site we re-examine the construction and plan our manufacturing process. To have a successful manufacturing result, dry weather conditions with temperatures of at least 20 degrees are required. The previous day, the construction site was already set up, so that the production process was started at 8 a.m. For an area of approximately 150 m² (180 yds²), we needed about 12 hours of continuous work time. First, the terrain area has to be moisture free by means of the waterproof textile fibers or films. During the manufacturing process, we utilized a fiber spraying machine that squirts the glass fibers together with a resin mixture in any color. The sprayed layers have to be rolled (vented). A final resin sealing completes the surface coating and permanently protects the laminate from water damage.
Cost estimation for 150 m² (180 yds²) terrain surface with about 3 – 4 mm (0.1-0.2 in) thick fibreglass laminate:
