25 ways FloodSax® sandless sandbags can prevent flooding in your home or business


FloodSax® alternative sandbags are so flexible they prevent flooding both outside homes and businesses and inside too where they absorb leaks and spills which traditional sandbags simply can’t do.

Although most people just think of traditional sandbags keeping floodwater out of their homes, FloodSax® do that … and a whole lot more.

FloodSax® are made out of a super absorbent material which resembles a large pillowcase before they come into contact with water. Once submerged in water, they absorb it at a phenomenal rate and miraculously increase in size to become as large as traditional sandbags but their uniform shape means they are easier to build into instant flood prevention barriers to keep torrential floodwater out.

In their dry state they are ultra-thin which means they can be slipped into the most inaccessible places around homes and businesses to soak up water leaks.

This means drips and leaks can fall onto the FloodSax® material which then soak it up, preventing it from causing any further water damage to the building. Water leaks can even cause ceilings to collapse.

Facilities managers use them in commercial buildings to deal with leaking roofs, pipes and radiators and many plumbers now carry them as an essential part of their anti-flooding kit.

FloodSax® are also an early warning system for drips and leaks that could deteriorate into a full-scale flood, causing potentially tens of thousands of pounds damage. If you think you have a leak or drip then pop a FloodSax® underneath it and leave it for a day or two and it will quickly show the problem up.

They are white so if there is a slight leak the tell-tale signs of a watermark on the FloodSax® or the FloodSax® itself slightly increasing in size would indicate there is a problem that needs sorting.
