Canal Liners are very cost effective solution whether you want to replace traditional concrete or just be prepared when it cracks. Plastic liners are a fraction of the cost of concrete and completely stop seepage losses. However, care should be taken to protect the liner from animals, vandalism and other potential damage. Canal liner can be protected with a layer of backfill or by placing the liner under a traditional concrete canal.
Hitech Rubber can custom fabricate long canal liners which are cheap and easy to install as a large panel. PVC is a popular choice for canal liners under concrete or backfill.
Advantages of Canal liner:
1) A smooth surface allows for a higher flow rate meaning reduced dimensions to move equivalent amounts of water and lower maintenance costs
2) Water Conservation
3) Eliminate seepage which promotes weed growth and erosion leading to further irrigation canal inefficiency.
Hitech Rubber can custom fabricate a canal liner into manageable sizes and install them quickly. we also have customers who have installed the canal liner themselves .
