- Additional information
HeatPumps4Pools have an excellent range of made-to-measure winter covers for koi ponds
We can make winter covers to any size for koi ponds.
Our covers are custom designed for koi ponds and span above the water surface to allow for transfer of gases from the water.
They can be supported over their span by either timber or our support straps (see below)
The 500 Micron Solar-Weave fabric allows the light through whilst the heat from the sun transfers from the bubbles into the layer of air underneath the pond
cover to provide heat and solar gain from the sun. It also stops heat loss from rising into the atmosphere, in the cold weather.

Super Strong Solar-Weave Fabric
Our pond covers are made from strong Solar-Weave fabric which can be tensioned without tearing.
The fabric has a reinforced mesh on the top side and solar bubbles on the underside
The cover allows light through to the pond.
The solar bubbles transfer the sun’s heat to the layer of air underneath the pond cover to provide heat and solar gain from the sun.
The edges of the cover are hemmed to give it strength and to prevent tearing.
NEW: Note that our pond covers are now made from GeoBubble material which gives it extra strength and durability
We can offer a choice of two types of fixings to hold the cover in place:-
1. Eyelets and Continuous Elastic Bungee
Eyelets are positioned around the edge of the cover.
The edges of the cover are sewn and reinforced to prevent the eyelets tearing out.
A continuous elastic “bungee” is then passed around the cover through the eyelets.
The elastic is then hooked over wall fixings at various positions around the pond.
This elastic fixing method gives some flexibility to the cover in windy conditions to prevent the cover from tearing.
The continuous elastic strap also allows for varying heights of the fixing bolts around the pond.
|Anchor Bolts for brickwork||Low profile anchor bolts for wood|
When the covers is fitted, the centre is unscrewed so it protrudes allowing the bungee to be hooked over it.
2. Sewn Straps
Instead of eyelets and an elastic strap fixing. we can provide straps sewn onto the edges of the cover.
Straps are sewn to the hemmed edge of the cover. The strap length is adjustable.
The D-ring is then hooked over the anchor bolts and the strap length adjusted.
For larger pond covers, straps make it easier to fit the cover than a continuous bungee and eyelets.
3. Feeding Flap
An optional feeding flap can be added to the cover to allow feeding the fish without removing the cover. This has Velcro fastenings.
The feeding flaps are normally 300mm x 300mm but the size can be adjusted if required.
The optional feeding flaps cost approximately £60 each inc VAT
The feeding flap can be located up to 600mm from the edge of the cover
Note: The feeding flaps must be located near to the edge of the cover
4. Fixing Anchors
Our cover prices include retractable fixing anchors for inserting into brickwork etc.
5. Grass Stake
We have a 500mm long ground stake for fixing into grass
Please contact us for pricing and details of this option
6. Optional Support Ratchet Straps
We can supply optional support straps to help suspend the cover above the water and to help to prevent it sagging.
7. Non-Rectangular Ponds
For non-rectangular shaped ponds, there are two options:-
1. The customer can send us a dimensioned drawing
2. The customer can send us a template (eg made from thick plastic). We will then make the cover to the template size.
8. Production Drawing
Before the cover is made, we will produce a production drawing for approval by the customer

Customer Feedback “I thought you might want a photo of the fitted cover to accompany the drawing on the website. Measurements were perfect and once I had set up a suitable frame underneath I am very happy with the cover. It is lightweight and robust which is essential for the size of cover that I have. It has also stayed in position during the high winds associated with storm Barra which was somthing I was concerned about given the exposed location. Just need to find somewhere to store it all in the Spring!
