We hope you can give us contacts for some fabricators who could supply geosynthetic pipe or equal. We want to make woven pipe for water—sizes from 3 to 30 feet and pressures 10 to 100 feet of head.

Lem,

This is an intriguing request. There are, of course, many plastic pipe manufacturers, but none (to my knowledge) make them from woven materials. The closest is a stiff polypropylene mesh made into a drainage pipe, but you would have to line it with a geomembrane to make it watertight.
Perhaps multiple layers of adhesively bonded geotextiles would work, but it doesn’t sound promising.
