How to Choose the Best Blue Pond Liner

How to Choose the Best Blue Pond LinerLet’s face it.  There are many different shades of blue.  There are blues that are very dark, there are also light blues. Some blues lean more towards green where others tend to be on the purple side. The ultimate question really becomes how do you choose the best blue pond liner for you?

Have you ever been to a Koi show where judges are examining fish and awarding them for their coloring, size and shape? If not, you are missing something very interesting to watch.  You can learn a great deal about a particular fish just by being present at one of these shows. The one thing you will notice right away is that the fish being judged are almost always displayed in a blue container.

This is not just any ordinary blue container. These containers are made with a very specific shape of blue. The reason for this is because this particular shade of blue is not found in any type of Koi. Sure there are Koi out there with blue in them, but it is a different shade than the containers are made of.

The other reason is that not every part of a Koi has a distinct color. Did you know that some of the areas of a Koi’s fins can be transparent? Take a closer look at yours and you might just see that. It is because of this that this particular shade of blue works well too. Those transparent areas show up very well against the blue and allow a judge to look at the shape and edges of things like fins to determine quality.

Pond Shield Competition Blue is made for this reason. Not only does it have a specific purpose, but it looks good too. The pictures page shows several projects that have been completed using Competition Blue. You should have a look at them if the color blue interests you.

Bear in mind that we also make a Sky Blue which is perfect for pools and fountains for the most part, but also looks pretty good in a pond setting as well. If none of these colors works for you, you can give us a call and we would be happy to discuss a custom color mix for you as well.
