Thread: Pond netting

  1. #1

    Pond netting

    HI


    I have just bought and started to install a new pond netting to be fitted onto the copings using stainless steel fixing rings and some stainless steel tension wires


    Whats happening is its still sagging into the pond between the wire tension ropes


    Im sure a lot of ponds i have seen have this problem, would it cause any harm to the koi rubbing on the netting ?


    Thanks

    If you've laid your wires front to back or side to side., Perhaps add another wire or two across the pond the opposite way to make a wire grid before putting the net over the top?

    Add a hook in each corner and you will be able to tension the whole net, you don't want it sagging in the water if gets coverd in crap and stinks, it's the only way I could get it clear of water, I used paracord instead of wire the hooks allow for precise tension using the mesh

    Do you have a roof over your pond ? you could fix and hang a piece of clear fishing line and hold the net off the water where it sags, cheers Steve.

    My netting above the pond is approx 900 mm high in the centre it fluctuates between 900 and 800mm due to weather conditions, when its hot and sunny its high when its damp and wet it sags. This is tensioned and even on dry days in the morning it sags because of dew. It doesn't help when the doves sit on it to sunbathe rather than the lawn but hey ho they are happy. Mine is the string type netting for pond s.

    Is their anyway you could fit 2 uprights with a fishing line to centre like a suspension bridge. Wont look great but hopefully only have to be approx 12" higher at either side, maybe hide in bushes/plants.
    When Iím dead I hope my Mrs doesnít sell my fishing gear for what I told her they cost!

    fast temp fix is a couple of floater footballs between the waters surface and the netting to keep it off, you will need to add tension or provide support in the area of sagging
