How about this for one of the world’s most practical Christmas gifts as they can save you an absolute fortune in flood damage along with preventing misery and trauma.
Having FloodSax alternative sandbags means you’re protected from the risk of flooding day and night 365 days a year – including Christmas Day and all those other pesky bank holidays when you’ve no chance of getting an anti-flood device at short notice.
Many American homes are not covered by flood insurance and the typical damage caused by an escape of water is now more than $13,000.
Flooding is a massive trauma which can have far-reaching implications on people’s mental health.
All this can be avoided with a box of 20 FloodSax – or even a couple of handy packs which each contain 5 vacuum-packed FloodSax.
They are very space-saving to store yet are multi-purpose and flexible. In its dry state FloodSax are incredibly thin with a large surface area so can be slipped into the most inaccessible places such as underneath sinks and beneath floorboards to soak up drips, leaks and spills. This can be vital if you have a leaking pipe or radiator to prevent damage until a plumber can get there.
Once immersed fully in water the FloodSax absorbs the water and then retains it so it miraculously inflates to become an instant ‘sandbag’ but without any sand. They are largely biodegradable by weight so are far more environmentally friendly than sandbags which can quickly deteriorate and leak sand everywhere, clogging up drains. Where would you store them, anyway?
FloodSax managing director Richard Bailey said: “There may be more exciting Christmas presents around, but if the time comes when you need to deploy the FloodSax you’ll quickly discover you couldn’t have received a better present at Christmas 2023. I suppose it’s the most practical Christmas present you could receive but if it saves you money and trauma then it really will be the gift that keeps on giving.”
Flooding happens somewhere in the US just about every day of the year. Just don’t let it happen to you.
