Enclosing pond next weekend, using uPVC and leaving air gap at top.
Large window opening at front, so I can clean window in pond. Any other
recommendations ?

Thanks Andy, my pond is approx, 3.5 x 1.9m, opening on length is 900mm, so hopefully won't have a problem.

Hi Dave I use Tri glaze conservatory roof sheeting just rest on top of the pond walls 7ft x 12ft surface area. These do fine I do pull one back through the daytime and slide back at night the sheets are about 6-8 inch from the water level but I do have a pitched roof on my pergola so laying them flat is ok as rain & snow seldom get to them.

I have a poly carb sheeting, built on a wooden frame, at an angle, so the rain and condensation runs off. It works really well. Keeps the heat in, however, I have plans to change next year.
