Case Study

FloodSax® alternative sandbags saved American homes when Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc across the USA.

Around 50 properties were at risk of being badly damaged by a floodwater storm surge when the Delaware River rose 2ft as the storm struck the New York area but they were saved by a wall of FloodSax® which kept back both the floodwater and tons of debris.

Jonathan Cochran, who built the FloodSax® flood barrier, said: “If the water had got into the basement at these homes the damage in each one would have been in the region of $3,000 or $4,000. These homes had suffered from flooding before and there was no way the people living there wanted to go through that again.”

  • Really great product. Absorbed and held water way better than the other sandless sandbags I’ve tried. They are a bigger too and can stack because they inflate evenly..

  • Great customer service. Product works as advertised and much preferred to filling sand/dirt bags.
