Do you have wooden railings? Are they ever in need of painting or oiling or other maintenance? Are they splitting? Are they splintering? Are they ever too hot to use?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you need to look at VinylHandrailCovers.com . Vinyl Handrail Covers make the answers to ALL those questions "NO" forevermore. Vinyl Handrail Covers have a Lifetime Guarantee.
The purpose of this page is to provide worthwhile links to other commercial pond pages that offer value to ponders. There are plenty links here. If you are shopping for supplies, try several places to comparison shop. Ponding, being relatively new, can have wide variations in prices on many products between different purveyors.

If you have run across any other neat POND related commercial links, sendem in.

Note that being listed here DOES NOT imply a de facto endorsement from me,
only that a ponder may find it useful.

If you find a broken link, please let me know. Thanks.

Money Saver Pumps. Programmable pumps that claim super efficiency and will justify their presumably high purchase costs by lower operating costs. Note the high kwh costs they claim utlities are charging are probably at-the-margin charges and are almost assuredly inflated to make the comparisons look more favorable.

Nonetheless, if shopping for a pump, this place is well worth a visit.

From a member of the Ponder's Bible list:

"There's a place in Tennessee that manufactures 30 ml. pvc liners. They're about 28 cents a sq. ft. Shipping depends on where you live. They come right to your door by freight truck. I've had mine for 4 years now and not had any problems. The place is called Mid America Lining. Number is 901-885-8888. You have to send them a check first. After they get the check, they'll ship the liner. I sent a money order so they didn't have to wait for the check to clear. Good Luck.

Pond Letters,Excellent

Pond Comments,We are fabricators of PPL-24 liners. I noticed one of your writers found us, (1996) and you were not familiar with our products. We supply our liners for .33 cents a square foot, F.O.B. Bend, OR. Our liners are in fact superior to 40 mil HDPE in strength, and the UV resistance surpasses that of PVC liners. Please take a moment to look at our web page and spec sheet on this product, and your writers will have a new link to quality, fish safe, affordable liners.

Thank you for your time, I really enjoyed your page.

(Note - I have used one of their liners and it seems fine so far (hasn't been 20 years yet though). It comes with a 20 year guarantee. It is, however, VERY DIFFICULT to install. It's a stiff material and I would recommend it only to larger ponds and/or ponds that have few sharp angles in the sides. Light to handle compared to rubber though.

Tell Jan "Swede's Pond Links recommended BendTarp." and you just might get a small discount.)

Discount Pumps & Liners Liner prices look a little high but not too far out of line. Complete price catalog on line so you can get an idea on liner prices. Plenty other stuff too.

The Pond Authority I visited but found it slow loading. Looks like a complete place to shop. Dunno about service or prices. Haven't bought anything (yet). I listed it because they asked me to and they are in Swedesboro, NJ. How could I resist?
