Floating covers are an economical way to store and protect large volumes of water. Layfield provides all types of floating covers and related containment products for water and wastewater applications. We design, manufacture, fabricate, install, clean and maintain floating covers.
DEFINED SUMP FLOATING COVERS
The most popular floating cover design uses a pattern of weights and floats to define rainwater sumps on the surface of the cover. Rainwater removal pumps move precipitation off of the cover. Defined sump floating covers are used for all sizes of potable water reservoirs and can be adapted to fit unusually shaped ponds.
BIOGAS FLOATING COLLECTION COVERS
Placing an impermeable floating cover onto a wastewater pond creates anaerobic conditions. Anaerobic treatment can improve wastewater treatment but can also lead to significant formation of biogas. Biogas collection floating covers collect the gas produced from anaerobic treatment ponds for beneficial use.
EVAPORATION/ALGAE CONTROL COVERS
In dry areas where water is scarce and expensive, an evaporation control cover can be a cost-effective solution. These lightweight covers are used to prevent evaporation of water for irrigation and agricultural use. Popular in Australia, they are becoming more common in the Southwestern United States. Lightweight covers are also appropriate for algae control when algae buildup is a problem.
