#### Got Imperial Measurements?

If your measurements are in feet and inches, converting it is easy.
1 foot = 0.3 metres, so just multiply your measurement in feet by 0.3 to get the value in metres. For example, 2 feet = 2 x 0.3m = 0.6 metres.

The accompanying diagram shows a pond with a maximum length of 5 metres and a maximum width of 4 metres. The final measurement you will need is the maximum depth of your pond, the diagram to the right shows a maximum pond depth of 1 metre.

Liner length = max length + (2 x max depth) + 1 (for overlap)
Liner width = max width + (2 x max depth) + 1 (for overlap)

So for a 5 meter by 4 meter pond it would be:

Pond liner length = 5+2+1 = 8 metres
Pond liner width = 4+2+1 = 7 metres

You'd need a pond liner that is 8 metres x 7 metres  Need some help?
