Product Description

A short term floating cover is an inexpensive way to prevent evaporation or dilution and to control odors in ponds. Short term covers are ideal for start-up ponds or water treatment facilities that are of a temporary nature. The floating cover is placed as a flat sheet on the pond using simplified rainwater removal systems. Short term floating covers are usually smaller in size and are often manufactured in one piece in our fabrication facility. A short term floating cover is an inexpensive way to gain the benefits of a floating cover without the cost of a permanent design. The one-piece construction of a short term floating cover allows it to be installed quickly with local forces. A staging area is required next to the pond for final assembly and for preparing the cover for deployment. The cover can be floated over a full or partially full pond.
