Double emitter drip tapes


Grekkon Limited is a pioneer of double-emitter drip tapes in Kenya. Our GrekkonDrip tapes have 2 emitters instead of the usual one emitter after a certain spacing. Double emitter drip tapes have gained popularity among farmers for their efficiency and longevity. During our drip system installations, a drip irrigation pressure regulator is included

Advantages of double emitter drip tapes

  • Pressure working

It will work under low gravity and also under very high water pump pressure. Under gravity, it works with one emitter, and under high pressure, both emitters release water

  • None clogging

It does not easily clog and when one emitter is clogged, the other one works in its stead

  • High discharge rate

Grekkon Limited’s double emitter drip pipes have a discharge rate of 1.2 to 2.5 liters per hour. This ensures limited clogging problems

  • The 3 -4 years replacement is too short a period considering the cost of drip lines. I thought if the drip lines are UV treated the should last at least 7 or more.
    Secondly if I buy a roll, do you also give other accessories needed?

    Patrice Mutua
    • Dear Patrice,

      It is not the UV degradation that calls for this short period change, but mechanical damage as a result of crop management activities. Otherwise by themselves they’ll last longer.
