Geomembranes This Season

Rainfall scarcity? No worries.

With the changing weather patterns, water harvesting and storage is slowly becoming a reality.  Geomembranes offer a simple way to provide waterproofing of dams and ponds where the soil type is not ideal for water storage, providing the waterproofing required. Harvested water can thus be used at a later date, for irrigation, animal or for domestic use.

Storage by use of dams or ponds requires the very best liner materials to prevent leakage from the reservoir into the ground. Luckily, Grekkon Limited geomembranes offer long life for a multitude of different applications. Our high quality geomembranes made from reinforced polyethylene that can prevent seepage for more than 10 years if well installed.

Geomembranes require materials of high resistance to abrasion or puncturing, and high UV resistance. You would want it to fit seamlessly the size of your project, and pocket friendly.

Below are some of the factors to consider when buying geomebranes:

  • Type of material,
  • Thickness,
  • Size of the dam and features. Always get the right dimensions of the dam before purchasing.

Site preparation

Site preparation is key to a successful geombrane installation.. It is always advisable to excavate the dam in a slanting manner to prevent the sides from collapsing.  Firstly, before installation, the bed surface must be free of stones and sharp objects to prevent liner puncturing. The geomembrane should be lose and not tight to prevent water from rupturing it.
