Getting the right quality of tarpaulin material remains the most important part of modern fish pond construction. Unfortunately, some overzealous marketers parade low quality tarpaulin (used for canopies) at the price of the reinforced material that is specifically suited for fish farming.
Non-reinforced tarpaulin breaks up within a few months when used for fish pond construction.
