The DIY Floating Dock Kit comes standard with the following features:

- Hardware for securing the modular sections together
The DIY Floating Dock Kits can be picked up for free at our headquarters in Lindsay, Texas or we can ship the Dock to you by motor freight (semi-truck). If we are shipping your DIY Dock Kit, it will be broken down in sections and ship on a pallet by 18-wheeler. You'll need to make sure there's room for a semi to get in and out of the property where it's being delivered. The shipping rate includes residential delivery with a call before delivery appointment and a lift-gate to help get the pallet down from the truck.
If you're picking up from our location, we can either leave the dock fully assembled, or break it down into sections, depending on your hauling capabilities.
The Aluminum-framed Floating Docks carry a 10-year limited warranty on all aluminum frames and welds. The TimberTech Decking won’t crack, split, splinter, or rot, and carries a 25-year limited warranty. The InsulBead Floats are all encapsulated polyethylene shells with UV inhibitors and carry their own warranty. We intend for your family to enjoy your Pond King dock for years to come and will stand behind our products. Sadly, if damage is caused by acts of God, you'll have to take the matter up with him.

There are two main factors to consider when trying to to decide between a DIY Dock Kit or an Aluminum-framed Floating Dock:
- How much does the water in your pond fluctuate?
- How big of a dock do you want?
The DIY Dock Kits are intended for bodies of water that are very constant (fluctuating less than a foot), and are only available with an 8-ft x 8-ft or 12-ft x 8-ft deck. If the water level in your pond fluctuates between one to 4-feet, you’ll need to go with the Aluminum-framed Floating dock - which is also available in larger sizes.
We use a composite decking material called TimberTech. We’ve chosen TimberTech because it is one of the densest decking products on the market, as you can see from the chart below.
