“Now that I have my liner, where do I start?”
Hopefully, when you received your liner you carefully inspected the exterior packaging for signs of damage or abuse. If not, and damage to the packaging is apparent, please contact us before proceeding. Please note: due to the durability of our products, it is likely that even if the cover material is damaged, the liner may not be affected.

Once the liner is delivered and inspected, please remove the banding and outer cover. It may be necessary to CAREFULLY cut the geotextile wrapper to gain access to the bundle. Do not cut the bandson the liner itself at this time.

Once the bundle has been exposed, the top of the liner should be
labeled with 2 dimensions with directional arrows. The first number
and arrow signify the length and “unroll” direction. The second number
and arrow signify the width and “unfold” direction.

Place the bundle in any one of the indicated spots and unroll in the direction of the arrow 100’. Once the bundle is laying flat along the ground, have all available helpers spread out evenly and pick up the top/leading edge, and pull the liner across the
pond 68’. It is recommended that you place people at a minimum of every 15-20 feet along the edge, deploying evenly across the pond.
