    Might investigate the pool covering stuff like Fred has given the cost and hassle of storing PC.
    Pretty sure is about £125 for the size I need plus a lady with a big sewing machine to hem it up and put some eyelets in.

    this is where I got my cover from mate.https://www.poolwarehouse.uk.com/ind...-solar-covers/
    I paid for ratchets and plastic eyes separate mate. priced the cover up by typing size in and working out how many tie downs I needed. I think I have 25 tie downs. because pond is round I needed more then if it was square. when I store it I fold it to about a meter and a half. so easy to stow away lol

    Just been looking at these covers and thought about buying a tarpaulin hole punch off ebay for a 5er with eyelet rings included. And a few bungee cords?

    Bungee cords arenít very uv resistant. Would probably only last a couple of winters in my experience. Cheap though

    The geo platinum bubble AJ. The actual cover was cheaper then all the straps mate. And plastic attachments. I could have just used string lol. But would nt have looked as good.That would have at least halfed the price. I think if I remember right the cover cost about £167.00 lol.
    I just used a screwdriver to make a hole and that was it.

    Forgot to add the geo bubble is 2x layers
    Blue on top and silver underneath. Stuck together. Thermal. So that to me is the best one to get.
    I don't think the standard would keep the cold out.
    I think that is just a cover to keep muck of the water.
    I think my cover gains me about 6 to 8 degrees on what the tempreture is at lol.
    I.e. at 5c say 11c. And I have one end always open to the elements. Top pond.
    If I shut that down and cover. And use inpond return. I don't think the temps would go up and down. But this year I am experimenting with it lol.
    As I don t want to shut top pond down.
    I think I got parasites last year. Because I shut it down for the winter.
    I left water in there to keep my plants alive.
    And it bred nasties. Because of no flow.
    So I am playing with it.
    The cover is very good. The fish are still swimming about at 9.5c which I am happy with

    Heres a couple of photos of connections.
    You could just get the eyelets mate and use polypropylene rope. Hell of a lot cheaper.

    That's not being tight mate.
    Its using your loaf. It was the wife that wanted the straps lol.
    If it had been just me. I would have used rope.
    Must admit does look neater though.
    For my pond. I measured a little short. So had to buy a bit more. And added ot on.
    That's why you can see tape on my pond cover. I should have bought 7meters instead of 5 meters
