QUALITY AND LONG LASTING DAM LINERS
The best UV-treated black dam liners in Kenya manufactured for tropical climates are from Grekkon Limited. Our dam liners line the walls and floors of water reservoirs to prevent water loss through sipage into the soil. Changing rainfall patterns and unpredictable seasons are increasingly becoming a norm in Africa. This is why the need for agricultural water conservation is growing amongst farmers.
We factory weld our dam liners to keep them leakproof during their entire lifetime of use. Leaking is a common occurrence with a manually welded geomembrane and we only allow it where it is impractical to factory weld.

How to install dam liners in your irrigation water reservoir or water tank
To support the liner in a reservoir, the owner will trench at a distance of 1M all around it. This trench is a foot deep and a foot wide. Once installation within the reservoir is complete, the liner edges are tucked in this trench and covered. This holds the liner in place during its period of use. For the tank, a steel or wooden band will support the liner in the inner tank’s wall for covered tanks, and on the outer tanks walls for open water tanks.
