PVC is short for Polyvinyl Chloride. Our irrigation grade agricultural PVC pipes carry out irrigation installations within east Africa. We install different sizes and thicknesses of irrigation grade agricultural PVC pipes according to land size and water pressure. Our agricultural PVC pipes constitute a large part of our irrigation pipes for sale in Kenya, and each PVC pipe size has a standard length of 6m. These irrigation pipes work with drip irrigation kits, sprinkler irrigation systems, and rain hose kits.
PVC Pipe Sizes
Available pipe sizes are; 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 63mm, 75mm, 90mm, and 110mm. Other larger sizes are manufactured on order by our PVC pipes manufacturers in Kenya. In irrigation systems, the larger pipes are used as mains and the smaller ones as sub-mains.
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.

How To Choose Your Irrigation PVC Pipes
i. 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.
ii. External exposure. Some growers opt to lay pipes on the surface, but most use them while 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 PVC pipes of lower thickness because the pipes have very low exposure to mechanical damage, and are not exposed to the sun’s degrading UV radiation. HDPE pipes are best for surface laying
1. How much do PVC pipes cost?
This is given above for those sizes with the most demand
2. Are there different types of PVC pipes?
They are categorised according to pressure ratings as; PN6, PN8, PN10, PN 12.5, PN 16, and PN 20. PN 20 has the thickest walls. A farmer using gravity flow will install PN6 because the water flow pressure is low. Another one using a water pump will connect the system with PN8 and above according to the size of the water pump
3. Which is the best PVC pipe?
The thickest one is the best because it lasts the longest, but it is also the most expensive
4. Are PVC pipes good?
Yes because, unlike GI pipes, they do not rust over time. Their key disadvantages are;
- They must be buried underground to extend their lifespan
- They cannot be used to evacuate hot water
5. Do PVC pipes get brittle with age?
Yes they do
6. How long will a PVC pipe last underground?
The thicker ones with a high-pressure rating will last 100 years
7. How long will a PVC pipe last in the sun
We supply fittings designed for use with these 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.
