Grekkon Limited supplies the best gauges of UV-treated HDPE pipes and fittings for irrigation in East Africa. These HDPE pipes have a standard length of 100m, with available pipe diameter sizes being;
- 20mm or 1/2”
- 25mm or 3/4″
- 32mm or 1′
- 40mm or 1-1/4”
- 50mm or 1-1/2”
- 63mm or 2”
- 75mm or 2-1/2”
- 90mm or 3”
- 110mm or 4”
Other larger sizes are manufactured on order. In irrigation systems, the larger pipes are used as mains, the smaller ones as sub mains, and the 16mm HDPE pipes are used to supply water directly to the crop.
We supply all HDPE fittings which are; tees, reducing tees, threaded tees, equal elbows, male and female elbows, connectors, reducing connectors, male and female adaptors, and end caps. They range in size from 20mm to 110mm.

The pipe size is determined by the amount of water required per area. Large farms will use large pipes, while small crop units will use small pipes.
HDPE Pipes & HDPE Fittings FAQs
Various HDPE fittings connect HDPE pipes to PVC, PPR, and HDPE pipes. These are; couplings, reducing couplings, adaptors, elbows, and tees.
HDPE pipe specifications are given as; pipe internal diameter, thickness, and length. At Grekkon Limited, our pipe diameter is given in mm, thickness as PN, and length in meters.
Water pressure. The pressure at which water will flow within. For instance, a farmer whose water flow is gravitational will use the lowest gauge, which is PN6. Another grower using a water pump will use a thicker pipe that withstands the pump pressure. The greater the pressure from the water pump, the thicker the pipe is.
External exposure. Some growers opt to lay pipes on the surface, while others will prefer them buried underneath the surface. The former will use thicker pipes that withstand the risk of mechanical damage, and prolonged exposure to UV radiation. The latter will use those of lower thickness because the pipes have very low exposure to mechanical damage, and are not exposed to the sun’s degrading UV radiation.
5. What is HDPE pipe fittings?
These are plastic accessories used to join the pipes to each other, to another pipe type, and to seal the pipe’s end.
6. How do you join HDPE pipes?
By using connectors or couplings
7. What is HDPE pipe used for?
HDPE pipes are used in irrigation, and electric cabling works.
8. Is HDPE price cheaper than PVC?
No. HDPE pipes are more expensive
9. How long is HDPE pipe?
10. Is PVC stronger than HDPE?
No it is not
11. How do you connect PVC pipe to HDPE pipe?
Attach a valve socket to the HDPE pipe which will connect to the female adaptor on the HDPE pipe
HDPE pipes have a long usable lifespan that extends to decades. Thicker pipes and buried pipes will last longer. We supply fittings designed for use with HDPE pipes to join them together, and with other accessories and material. Every fitting is of the same diameter size as the pipe, but always thicker.
