Dam liner in Kenya by hortitechno|Quality you can trust +254723053026

Dam liner refer to thick polythene layers used to create a cover that separates water from underground storage. Dam liners separate the ground where the water is stored with the upper surface to avoid loss of water through sipping to the ground.

In areas with challenges of soil porosity, dam liner in Kenya is important in tapping and storing rainwater which can be used to irrigate agricultural fields or used for other domestic purposes.

Farmers can use dam liner in Kenya to store water in areas with heavy downpours to ensure that there is enough water for use during drought.

The dam liner in Kenya are very hardy and can hold huge volumes of water without any problems thanks to the thick sheets of plastic layers.

Dam liners in Kenya are black and are sold per square meter depending on the size of the dam to be covered. At hortitechno we stock and supply the best quality dam liner in Kenya from reliable and genuine manufacturers. Our dam liners are designed to last several years without any repair after installation.

Dam liners are of different types in terms of the thickness of polyethylene. Generally, there are thin-layered dam liners (LDPE) and thick-layered ones(HDPE) to serve various purposes.

Thickly layered dam liners are used in areas with rough or rocky surfaces to avoid tearing and resistance from the sharp and rough surface, while thin-layered ones can be used best in smooth and level surfaces since the resistance is minimal.

Alternatively, the amount of water stored or the size of the pond/dam dictates the thickness of the dam liner used. Huge volumes of water require a thickly layered dam liner (0.75mm-1.0 mm) to ensure enough strength and tensile against the heavyweight.

Small dams or ponds that store less amount of water can be lined with thin layered dam liners in Kenya due to the less weight carried. It is, therefore, the responsibility of the buyer to state the purpose, size of the pond, topography, and amount of water before purchasing a dam liner in Kenya, and get the right material from the hortitechno greenhouses countrywide to serve their water storage needs.

To be specific on the thickness of the dam liners, they come in 0.3mm,0.5mm,0.75mm to 1mm thickness with a definite width of 8 meters and 7 meters that can be fixed in any shape of a pond or dam.

Benefits of dam liner in Kenya

  • The benefits of dam liners in Kenya include the storage of large volumes of water from excessive runoff. The water stored can be used during drought to irrigate crops enabling food security and improving the livelihoods of farmers.
    • The water can be used at homes for drinking and other domestic purposes ensuring a stable supply of clean water throughout the year.
    • Livestock also requires water for drinking, farmers can install dam-lined reservoirs to help in rearing livestock as well as the growth of livestock feeds from the stored water via irrigation.
