Product Description

Layfield's Evaporation/Algae Covers use several unique arrangements to fasten floats to the lightweight cover material. This produces an economical floating cover that is ideal for algae control, evaporation control and odour control. Evaporation/Algae covers are a variation of the defined sump style of floating cover. We found a particular arrangement of floats and weights that was much more economical than standard practice. Then we used our skills in prefabrication and installation to craft these elements into a unique cover system. The result is a lightweight cover that makes economic sense for evaporation or algae control. Layfield's Evaporation/Algae cover is ideal for irrigation and water treatment ponds. The use of prefabricated panels minimizes field seams resulting in reduced installation time and costs. Typically Layfield can float a 50,000 ft2 (5,000 m2) cover onto a full pond in a single day.
